When your IT policies and procedures get audited – think SOC – the aditor will ask for two items for data destruction: Certificate of Destrution and due-diligence on your provider. NAID is the gold standard of third-party affirmation.
The key component of secure data destruction is an uncompromised chain-of-custody. Allow digital media to be removed from your premises and control is a break in that chain.
What are your priorities when disposing of retired IT equipment? The safe answer is “our number one goal is to secure our cutomer’s information”. Recouping value from erased hard drives should be way down the list.
