The Data Protection Act will change; that's a fact. With the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) soon being able to levy fines against ITADs as well at an organisation's Data Controller, is your secure IT disposal partner up to the task of protecting your company's reputation?
The Data Protection Acts place concise demands upon those who hold personal data in terms of the security of this information and the measures applied in order to protect it. The updated data protection legislation includes specific provision for all electronic computer data, and importantly gives legal responsibility to ensure the secure removal of data from IT and other equipment that enters the public domain.
Tier 1 realise that what a company does today maybe scrutinised tomorrow and our customers choose our data cleansing, IT disposal, computers and electronic equipment recycling services because we can demonstrate our long term viability. Whilst the law requires ever stricter standards of confidentiality and computer data protection, there is no way of knowing what data recovery tools will be widely available in the future and it is certain that companies will be held accountable for computer data protection by shareholders, customers, employees and the press.
Tier 1 is perfectly placed to offer watertight advice and a trusted service to ensure total compliance with all that the Data Protection laws can throw at organisations with redundant IT assets to recycle. Thanks to our position on the ADISA Advisory Council, our place on the Government’s Working Group on Greening IT and the requirements of our central Government customers, Tier 1 gives the assurance that even in the face of scrutiny from the ICO, ours is a service that allows the company’s Data Controller to sleep easily at night.
