Security Process Flow
CBIT’s data security management process is integrated into our certified procedures and our operations manual. It involves a number of integrated steps that ensure all equipment is physically secure from the time it leaves the customer site until data destruction is documented. We understand that having a centralised and standardised process for all retired IT equipment security activities is crucial to preventing information security breaches.
Electronics are escorted from the customer location and loaded by our screened personnel into one of our own secured, locked vehicles. Locks are inspected for tampering each time the driver returns to vehicle.
Upon arrival at CBIT’s facility, equipment is moved directly from the secured vehicle into a high security area where it will be sorted, weighed and inventoried. Each unit is assigned an inventory tag generated from our own bespoke software.
All equipment is then audited for reuse potential in our high security area.
Auditors perform customer requested data destruction method for all electronic media.
All drives are physically destroyed via shredding.
Customer identifying marks and asset tags are physically removed.
Once destruction is verified, customers receive detailed certificates of destruction for each piece of electronic media processed.
Secure Data Destruction
