Tier 1 are delighted to announce that we have passed our latest unannounced ADISA audit, retaining our Distinction with Honours certification.
The Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA) was launched in 2010 as a certification scheme for companies who participate in IT asset recovery offering data sanitisation services. These companies are Data Processors and must operate in a specific way in order to help their customers, the Data Controller, comply with previous and new data protection regulations.
The scheme is open to those wish to operate their business to the very highest of standards and are willing to undertake regular scrutiny by an experienced auditing team.
ADISA members agree to being subjected to regular (Full) audits at least once every three years but also undergo completely unannounced (Spot-check) audits at least once a year. At these, an ADISA auditor turns up with no prior warning and not only checks that the operational side of the business is running in accordance with the ADISA Standard but also selects ten or more data bearing assets and forensically checks them to ensure data has been removed. Only when these checks are passed does the member retain their certification.
ADISA members since January 2011, Tier 1 are certified with Distinction with Honours – the highest award ADISA can give. Tier 1 also won the Best ITAD Project at the ADISA Awards 2018.
