The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018.
This is essentially an update to the Data Protection Act and all businesses storing and processing sensitive or personal data will have to comply with it, so that pretty much means all of us. Our Data Protection Officer can advise you on how our processes and services can help you meet your GDPR requirements, and our Service Level Agreement provides a written record of how we will do this.
Since you store data you are a Data Controller and you are obliged to take measures to ensure the security and confidentiality of that data throughout its lifecycle; from gathering the data in the first place to finally disposing of it securely.
Secure disposal of data is where we come in; we are your Data Processor and, as with most legislation, a big part of compliance is being able to demonstrate due diligence in supplier selection to ensure whoever is carrying out the service for you has the necessary skills, expertise and equipment to provide a suitable service.
We’re specialists in secure IT Asset Disposal and we use industry-leading tools and equipment to ensure we provide a service that keeps you right. The service can be tailored to meet your disposal policies and requirements, whether it’s a basic Secure Recycling Collection or the most secure of disposal requirements.
