Hard Drive Wiping in North Dakota
Hard Drive Wiping in North Dakota
Having a data destruction and IT asset disposition plan, including policies and procedures, is essential in this digital era if you want to protect your business. Your customers expect that the confidential data they entrust to you is going to remain secure, and to that end, there are privacy laws in place that you must comply with.
One of the best ways to eliminate threats like data breach and identity theft is through professional hard drive shredding, which SEAM is pleased to offer North Dakota businesses in and around Bismarck, Fargo, West Fargo, Grand Forks, Minot, and beyond. However, we also understand that the bottom line is important, which is why we provide secure and comprehensive wiping remarketing services, as well.
As a business owner, you naturally want to recoup some expense when you upgrade electronics, especially considering the high rate of turnover in computer equipment and mobile devices. Secure wiping and refurbishing gives you the opportunity to see some return on investment while still complying with all applicable privacy laws, including industry regulations.
Security is always our top priority, which is why SEAM provides your business with locking security carts and bins for safe device collection. During scheduled pickups, our trained professionals will come to your location to retrieve hard drives, computer equipment, and other electronic devices to package, load, and transport to our secure facility.
From there we’re happy to assess devices in order to determine which, if any, are eligible for remarketing. Devices that can be reused will be thoroughly wiped in a comprehensive overwriting process that replaces any and all existing data with zeros and ones.
SEAM then performs quality control checks with the aid of forensic software to verify that all existing data has been completely erased and overwritten. Further, our processes are validated annually, in keeping with certification requirements that ensure the highest standards for compliance.
In order to provide the best possible services, SEAM proudly complies with Revision 1 of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication Series 800-88, to meet or exceed current standards for data sanitization used by the U.S. Department of Defense. As the only certified ITAD service provider in the Dakotas, SEAM meets the strictest standards for quality processes and environmental management systems, and we regularly submit to third-party auditing to ensure ongoing compliance.
Benefits for Your Business
In addition to complying with all applicable privacy laws, including industry regulations related to finance, education, healthcare, data centers, and more, the wiping and remarketing services offered by SEAM deliver desirable benefits for your business. For starters, you may be able to reuse some items for your own business purposes, saving money over procuring new devices.
However, you could also elect to sell refurbished devices, potentially seeing some return on your investment and offsetting the cost of new device purchases. In addition, there’s nothing more eco-friendly than giving older devices a second life by reusing them and keeping them out of the landfill.
