ITEC Results

ITEC enabled our client to meet their strict data security and privacy requirements, and maintain PCI compliance by providing certified on-site hard drive shredding at the client’s data center. The first step in the process was for ITEC’s NAID Certified technicians to remove all hard drives from their respective systems, and serial number scan each individual hard drive.

Once all the hard drive serial numbers had been recorded, ITEC’s data destruction technicians loaded the hard drives into secure storage bins, where the hard drives were then transported to the data center loading dock, and loaded onto ITEC’s custom hard drive shredding truck, and destroyed according to D.O.D. and NIST guidelines. The destruction of the customer’s hard drives was fast and secure. ITEC uses a high volume shredder, and was able to destroy all 2,000 hard drives in half a day.

Upon completion of the destruction, ITEC supplied our customer with a Certificate of Destruction detailing the serial number of each destroyed hard drive, and ensured all PCI compliance requirements were maintained.
