Data Destruction and Sanitization
What is Data Destruction and Sanitization?
Sanitization is the process of removal or destruction of data from the hard drive in a permanent fashion.
As technology advances so does the amount of confidential data collected, stored and transferred. With all of the current laws and regulations in place, all organizations are affected by data security. It is critical for organizations to not only protect, but also properly dispose of this data.
As we have seen, unsecured data or data that is improperly disposed of has led to theft of intellectual property, financial information, customer and/or employee records. The result of which can bring hefty fines, negative PR as well as regulatory noncompliance, lawsuits and even jail time for the employees responsible.
Who It Impacts
When electronic devices such as computers, laptops, and smartphones are not properly disposed of or erased before being discarded, they can pose a significant risk to the company’s sensitive information.
This can result in data breaches, intellectual property theft, and other types of cyber attacks that can cause severe damage to the business.
How We Help

While the risk is high, the solution remains simple – Certified Data Destruction. RAE offers Secure, Certified Data Destruction. Our process includes full audit reports for all data destroyed by unit serial number for a complete record of all customer data units and devices destroyed on your behalf.
RAE’s “data cleanse” process meets or exceeds the DoD 5220.22m standard with a minimum 3-wipe pass. Equipment such as servers, laptops and computers containing data deemed for remarketing or where requested by the customer, will undergo our proprietary sanitization and quality assurance process known as “data cleanse”.
The Remarketing of used equipment not only maximizes the ROI but also minimizes the environmental impact and hard drives represent a substantial value of the equipment.
