Don’t get caught by hefty fines or the possibility that your digital data is accessible to a 3rd party once you retire or donate your devices such as MacBook’s iMac, Computers and Laptops.
Even external hard drives and USB sticks could contain confidential data.
Did you know that as a business you have the obligation to ensure that customer data you collected has been destroyed securely and is unrecoverable. It can be a lot of hassle specially for smaller business but nothing would be more embarrassing or costly for you having your customer data, confidential business information or personal information ending up with a 3rd party or on the internet.
Many businesses were fined by the ICO for selling their formatted hard drives on online platforms.
Formatting an erasing a drive does not guarantee that data is permanently destroyed. Businesses are using more mobile devices these days and factory resets on a mobile phone such as iPhones, Samsung’s or iPad s with IOS or Android systems are not enough to erase sensitive data and it still allows for recovering personal confidential data such as contacts, photo, word and pdf files.
