The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the toughest privacy and security law in the world. Though it was drafted and passed by the European Union (EU), it imposes obligations onto organizations anywhere, so long as they target or collect data related to people in the EU. The regulation was put into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR will levy harsh fines against those who violate its privacy and security standards, with penalties reaching into the tens of millions of euros.
With the GDPR, Europe is signaling its firm stance on data privacy and security at a time when more people are entrusting their personal data with cloud services and breaches are a daily occurrence. The regulation itself is large, far-reaching, and fairlylight on specifics, making GDPR compliance a daunting prospect, particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Secure Hard Drive Shredding eliminates any risk of your data ever being retrievable or falling into the wrong hands.
Shredding reduces the platters which store your data to fragments or 4mm and below.
This process thoroughly destroys your data along with any possibility that it can ever be recovered.
We can securely destroy
IDE, SCSI, SATA, SSD Hard Disk Drives along with back-up tapes DVD's CD's and Floppy disks

Prior to Shredding your redundant Hard Disk Drives each drive will be scanned by serial number only.
This allows us to provide you with a destruction certificate once the drives have been totally destroyed.
Physical shredding of a hard disk drive guarantees all data is destroyed forever and is impossible to recover any data due to the platters being smashed into tiny fragments some of which are like grains of sand.
Shredded materials are eventually transported to a specialist refiner who will smelt them down and the raw materials can then be reused to make equipment in the future.
a list of final destination refiners is available from us on request
