Ensuring Data Stays Destroyed

Today, data security is a main concern whenever any company or citizen is retiring their old IT equipment. Formatting the hard drive may seem like enough to some, but there are people who dedicate their time and efforts to recovering that information, which is easier than you think.

That is why you should always make sure that, when recycling any electronics with data storage devices, you recycle with an electronics recycler with the necessary certifications. The R2 Certification is not only dedicated to ensuring electronics are appropriately recycled, but there is much consideration given to data security. All companies obtaining the R2 Certification undergo a rigorous data security audit to ensure that their standards are up-to-date with current industry standards.

Accurate IT Services is an R2 Certified electronics recycler that holds data security as its #1 priority. We follow the current industry standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication 800-88 Data Sanitization Guidelines. We use Department of Defense software for wiping hard drives to ensure that any information on the hard drives stays erased. Furthermore, we follow strict guidelines in the destruction of hard drives.

Recycling your old electronics should not be a difficult decision. Knowing that your electronics recycler is R2 certified is knowing that your data is safely and securely handled.
