Data protection & information governance is not optional and therefore provides business with obligations and procedures that are a challenge to many. If data protection compliance is breached, the penalties financially are large and the damage to reputation substantial.
R3 Online’s Secure Data Wiping Service not only helps remove this burden, but will also mitigate the risks associated with record retention and unauthorised use during the data lifecycle.
Responsibility to be compliant doesn’t end when a storage device has been replaced or decommissioned, it continues while data is stored on it. This is the case for the following situations:
At R3 Online our services incorporate industry compliant data wiping software, utilising our bespoke computer systems designed specifically for data wiping. Our processes are designed to comply with the Data Protection Act (1998) and will also incorporate the unique needs of our clients through Service Management Agreements.
