Secure Disposal

Tamar Disposal Agreement

What is Secure Asset Disposal?

“Any situation where the data controller transfers custody of an IT asset to a third party for management or processing whether on a temporary or permanent basis.”

Threats to data security are not just confined to the physical and technological, but also to asset disposal, a concern frequently overlooked when security policies are considered.

Indeed, password protection to combat physical device threats and a state of the art firewall to protect you from technological risks are recommended, however, your security policy cannot be considered robust if data bearing assets are leaving your company without sufficient care.

You will still be held responsible for breaching the GDPR if personal data is compromised during the asset disposal process. It is vital that you take measures to ensure that your specialist service provider, considered the ‘data processor’ in this instance, has appropriate security measures in place.

Secure IT recycling ensures that data holding IT equipment is asset tracked, securely transported and stored before undergoing a full data sanitisation process using either heavy duty shredders or MOD approved data overwriting software.
