Data removal

DISKUS Polska offers two methods of effective data removal and deletion:

  • hard (physical) method – consists of irretrievable deletion of the saved data with the application of the demagnetizing device. After the execution of the demagnetization process, the data saved upon tape carriers and hard disks, is irretrievably lost
  • soft (programme) method – consists of information deletion with the application of software manufactured by BLANCCO and Ontrack, certified, among others, by ABW, CESG and other companies. The advantage of this kind of process is the possibility for the reusing of the disc while the given Partner obtains a proper certificate, which confirms the deletion of data from particular hard drives

The service of deletion and destruction encompasses each type of electronic information carriers (Flash memory, hard drives, stream cassettes, audio/video cassettes). As the result of the execution of the aforementioned processes carriers are physically destroyed, which totally excludes the possibility of their reuse.
The demagnetization process takes less than 10 seconds, with degaussing force 9000 Gausses. The full list of carriers, coercive force and generated magnetic field are here>>.
The data removal service can be done in DISKUS company (we can rent special transportation cases Turtle Case or DataGuard). After data removal process, we send carriers in place selected by customer and give special certificate, that is confirmation for efficient data removal.

Data removal description:

  3. Express+ - time realization up to 48 hours
  • complexity – we expose additional services, for example: renting of transportation cases, filming of data removal process, plombage of chips
  • quality – with using of software (soft metod) and high quality devices, with demagnetizing devices that have world-wide safety norms (hard method): PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization, NIST SP 800-36, NIST SP 800-88, HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act), PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act), California Senate Bill 1386.

After data removal, we suggest destroy/utilize carriers.
