With personal and corporate data occupying a larger and larger footprint, it’s important for every team in the area to have a solid plan for their Cupertino data sanitization needs. If your team is looking for best practices for your Cupertino data sanitization project, look no further – our team has prepared this quick set of best practices that your team can easily implement.
Legal requirements are a good place to start
When we tell teams that legal requirements are a good place to start, we basically mean two things.
First, it is of course paramount that you follow all data privacy laws, particularly with the data of your customers, partners, and pretty much anyone else who you share data with. Data privacy laws protect all kinds of information, like personal information, corporate information, and more. Knowing the law is the first step in ensuring legal compliance during a data sanitization project.
Second, the law is just a starting point. You’ll likely want to be even more careful in your data sanitization project, to truly ensure no data could possibly be leaked or abused, even beyond the minimum legal requirements.
Destroy data thoroughly
At Direct Resource Management, every data sanitization project that we undertake not only is designed to meet all legal requirements, our process is also designed to unquestionably destroy the data on every device that our customers bring to us for processing.
Our team at DRM uses best practices that adhere to industry-leading standards used by the Department of Defense and NIST, so we recommend your team ensures the same standards are followed for your data sanitization project as well.
Ensuring data is destroyed completely during the data sanitization project can ensure you avoid costly problems with identity theft, corporate espionage and countless other nightmares just waiting to happen.
Documentation is crucial
It’s not merely enough to destroy the data completely, it’s also important that you have clear records to prove that you did.
Clear documentation not only shows that each and every device you planned to have sanitized was processed properly, it also helps protect the professional reputation of your team and serve as a quick and authoritative answer to any questions that should arise.
If there should ever be any data security issue at your organization, being able to quickly pull up the documentation and show that you accounted for every device and had them processed properly will help ensure your team doesn’t become the subject of intense scrutiny or doubt.
Using a professional is often the best choice
Data sanitization usually isn’t the forte of most local teams. While many Cupertino teams deal with data and technology, they’re usually creating value in the market from the data rather than focusing on how to wipe it.
Using a professional like our team at DRM can ensure that your team stays focused on what you do best, rather than having to research laws and best practices. Teaming up with a group of professionals like us can streamline the process and save you both time and money.
