Data Wiping

Confidentiality is a matter of trust. It is the responsibility of the company to ensure the private information collected from their clients never falls into the wrong hands. This threat becomes heightened every time a company upgrades their technology or sends their excess inventory into the secondary market. By using secure data wiping, companies can eliminate the sensitive data on their hard drives and other forms of recordable media while keeping the equipment suitable for reuse or resale.

What is Secure Data Wiping?

According to the Department of Defense’s data destruction guidelines (DoD 5220.22-M), secure data wiping consists of overwriting each sector of the disk no less than three times. The process occurs as follows:

  • On the first pass, all of the data in each sector is replaced by a character
  • On the second pass, each character is replaced by its complement
  • On the third pass, each sector is then filled with a random character

When Data Wiping Isn’t Enough

Government agencies and some corporate contractors need a greater assurance that their data cannot be retrieved. In those cases, Modern Waste will combine the above data wiping process with physical destruction in the form of crushing. The drive is rendered unusable and will be sent out as scrap.
