Disk Destruction

The issue of identity and data theft is becoming more common; £1.7 billion is estimated to be the loss suffered in the UK by companies and individuals by them is use of confidential and personal data. Companies affected by misuse of data report loss of customer confidence and trust after the incident as a negative factor in their ongoing ability to atract and retain business. BBC News recently highlighted a Which Computing reported that 22,000 "deleted" files were recovered from eight computers purchased on eBay. Criminals obtain computers from internet sites, second hand sales and rubbish tips. Largescale "factories" are in operation where recovered hard disk drives are scanned for useful information which is then sold on to unscrupulous users. Non-compliance with regulation in the retention and protection of data can result in fines and reputation damage. Degaussing or reformatting drives does not guarantee data destruction.

Taking disk drives off site to be destroyed at a third party location has security implications that most customers find unacceptable. Mafi Mushkila has the solution to the problem; using the eDR Solutions HDC-V Hard Disk Crusher to drill through the hard disks spindles, physically creating ripples in the platters making it impossible to recover the data.

Mafi Mushkila will provide a fully audited process that will demonstrate that your disks have been removed from the computers or storage arrays and successfully destroyed. Our crusher is a self contained unit (in a flight case) that is brought to your site, needing only a 13-Amp 3-pin socket for power.

Destroyed disks can be disposed of by Mafi Mushkila or using your own recycling process.
