Q: When conducting business with EAC, how does your organization manage and protect proprietary and confidential data contained within hard drives and other media storage devices?
The process for data destruction will occur in these steps
-Hard drives and storage media approved by our clients for reuse will undergo a low level format rendering your data non recoverable.
-Hard drives or storage devices that are unfit for reuse will be isolated and prepared to send for shredding to our approved processing partners.
-Our approved partners have agreements with us to securely shred and destroy such devices, as well we will issue certificates of destruction/ confirmation of drive wiping. It is important that EAC states that we do not view any data on drives prior to wiping or shredding.
