Data Destruction


  • We recommend and prefer total destruction of hard drives to ensure safe data removal. Today’s data recovery techniques are becoming so much more sophisticated that the only guaranteed way of disposing all of the confidential information on hard drives is by completely destroying them.
  • ViaTeK Solutions can utilize White Canyon software to “wipe” hard drives and remove data.
  • Our complete physical data and media destruction is performed in highly secured, highly supervised monitored facilities.
  • Each customer shipment is assigned its own distinguished customer number for security and confidentiality. Materials are identified by using this distinct number. We also record and document serial numbers from the hard drives and all other materials to meet recording requirements.
  • Our methodology for hard drive and data destruction adheres to these regulations/acts:
    • HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)
    • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
    • Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)
    • Patriot Act of 2002
    • Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act
    • US Safe Harbor Provisions
    • FDA Security Regulations (21 C.F.R. part 11)
    • PCI Data Security Standard
