Universal Waste Disposal and its employees consider data security our number one priority.
While improper disposal of things like fluorescent light bulbs or televisions have tangible damages, data, how it is stored, and subsequently destroyed, have proven in recent years to be even more devastating when mismanaged.
Security penetrations can cause everything from poor equipment performance, to complete system takeover with information held at ransom.
While being online guarantees that you will encounter threats, it’s as important or more to not only disconnect old equipment, but destroy any information no longer needed.
Universal Waste Disposal embraces National Institute of Standards and Technology, Guidelines for Media Sanitization (NIST 800-88) and Department of Defense (DoD 5520) methods of handling sensitive information and data.
In addition to industry-standard data wiping involved , we believe it’s important that our customers feel content knowing there is absolutely no way their old files, patient records, or other intellectual proper can fall into anyone’s hands.
