Canopus Solutions offers proven secure solutions when tackling client data destruction requirements. Our clients will benefit from our professional approach to data destruction, utilising NCSC, approved data destruction methods. Anyone responsible for managing data bearing assets must understand their legal obligations, as well as the consequences if that data were to pass outside of their control. As standard we erase all Hard Drives using a HMG IAS No.5 Higher overwrite via a LAN Server. Any Hard Drive unable to be fully wiped is removed from its unit, recorded, and sent through a HMG Approved Degaussing process. Once degaussed the Hard Drive remains stored within an internal secure area prior to be taken to a secure facility for supervised shredding.
Canopus Solutions has a wealth of experience within the IT Industry and identifies the need to reuse rather than recycle end of life IT equipment. Most of the equipment identified as ‘End of Life’ by most companies looking to upgrade or refresh their IT Asset Infrastructure, is actually perfectly good working equipment. Reuse is the preferred option as stated in UK Waste Legislation, each and every item refurbished is another item not sent for recycling. Although items which fail testing and cannot be refurbished are sent for WEEE complaint recycling. There are many routes for reused items, some of which benefit the clients and charities.
