Being able to produce documented processes and proof that these processes were consistently followed will be important deciding factors should your operations be audited. Certificates of data destruction and consistent documented audit trails are important proof points.
Regardless of the method of data destruction, request certificates of data destruction to demonstrate that all data is destroyed.
- At SRS, all items received for data destruction are tracked via our online inventory module which is accessible to clients via the Sims Portal. Clients are able to track, monitor and create reports on the status of data bearing assets. Certificates of Data Destruction can be provided, regardless of the destruction service provided – data erasure, on-site destruction, witnessed destruction or plant recycling.
