Certificate of Destruction

A detailed Certificate of Destruction is critical documentation for any hard drive destruction project.  Data privacy laws and information destruction guidelines require verification and proof of data destruction.  Our digital media destruction process provides a secure and verifiable chain-of-custody.

Our NAID AAA Certified hard drive shredding service conforms to NIST 800-88 guidelines for the most secure form of information destruction.  If your organization requires full NIST 800-88 data destruction reporting – a more detailed Certificate of Destruction – we can handle that as well.  We have provided NIST 800-88 data destruction to JPL and NASA in Pasadena, CA.

NIST 800-88 Sample

NIST 800-88 requires more details than a typical Certificate of Destruction.  The sample COD from NIST guidelines suggest that each hard drive record should include make, model and source of the media.  

E-Waste Security will document the additional information for an additional fee.
