Secure Data Erasure

Data is projected to grow by 800 percent in the next five years and there is an increased storage of sensitive data on both portable and non-portable medias, spurred on by rapid technological changes. The shorter lifespan expected of these IT assets and the climbing number of data breaches of varied forms such as identity theft, laptop theft/loss, compromised networks reported worldwide, further drive the need for permanent data erasure of end of life electronic devices. Organisations that have their confidential data falling into the wrong hands potentially faced serious repercussions in the form of financial and reputational loss. It has been reported that companies have spent nearly $5 million on average to recover corporate data that were stolen or lost.
