Data Wiping & Hard Disk
Core Concept Computer Services
provide a data wiping services for computer hard
drives, mobile devices, usb sticks and other
media. Senstivite information is erased from all
storage devices using CESG Approved Data Erasure
Software - to the CESG Wiping Standard.
We use the "US Department of Defense in the
clearing and sanitizing standard DoD 5220.22-M"
To wipe a hard drive means to completely erase
the drive of all information. Deleting everything
does not wipe a hard drive and formatting does not
wipe a hard drive.
When you format a hard drive or delete a partition, you only delete the file system, making the data invisible but not gone. A file recovery program or special hardware can easily recover the information.
The good news is that when hard drives are wiped,
they are almost always reusable within your own
organisation. Alternatively, you may wish to
donate or resell your IT equipment.
