The data erasing by BCD Electro S.L
The. most important reason for data destruction is keeping all files and folders stored on the device from falling into the wrong hands.
BCD Electro will make sure the data is completely unrecoverable when your computers are recycled. BCD Electro guarantees in writing, the complete destruction of the data contained in any hard disk that is delivered to us.
Data regulations in force
The current regulations in this regard are Ley Orgánica de Protección de Datos y Garantía de Derechos Digitales (LOPDGDD), of December 6th. 2018, which replaces the former Ley Orgánica 15/1999, of December 13th., de Protección de Datos de Carácter Personal (LOPD). The objective of the LOPDGDD is to adapt Spanish legislation to European regulations, which is reflected in the Reglamento General de Protección de Datos (RGPD), in force from May 25th., 2018.
To fully comply with this regulation when disposing of computer equipment, BCD Electro performs data destruction of the magnetic media of individual servers, complete racks, clusters, complete CPDs, laptops and desktop computers. The type of disk does not matter, as we can process IDE, ATA, PATA, SATA, SCSI, SAS, Fiber Channel, SSD, etc. Any type of disk is processed according to our data destruction protocol to comply with the LOPDGDD.
BCD Electro is in charge of data erasing and destruction
Formatting the computer or manually deleting the files, does not at all guarantee that they can’t be recovered. In fact, through different operations, it is relatively easy to recover the deleted files and even the complete structure of a fully formatted disk. When we receive any equipment in our warehouse for its correct recycling, the first thing we do is to note the serial number of the disk or disks it contains. The hard drives are then inventoried and related to the equipment from which they came from. They are subsequently processed in our erasing booth, where they are subjected to a process in accordance with DoD 5220.22-M protocol. After the complete destruction of the data of each disk has successfully completed, we issue an Erase Certificate.
If the erase process has not been successfully completed, the disk is destroyed by physical means, to ensure that no information can be extracted from it. Our data erasing and destruction certificate allows our clients to rest, assured that their data has been completely destroyed and to know that they comply with the LOPDGDD.
