Data wiping (gdpr)


Whether you realise it or not, your organisation is storing more and more personal and confidential information about its customers and partners. This personal data is crucial to your organisation’s continuity. But how should a company protect such data? Legislation (GDPR) makes you responsible for taking due care in processing and storing sensitive data, but also for erasing personal data from rented IT hardware or systems at their end-of-life.

Verifiable, certified data erasure

IRENT offers certified data wiping, so you can be sure that personal data has been erased with the requisite care. That way you’ll have 100% certainty that your data has been wiped, and you will receive a certificate as well which you can show to the authorities for verification purposes if necessary. We’ll give you a clear quote for this additional service, the costs of which will depend on the quantity of data.

Benefits of data wiping by IRENT

  • Verifiable protection of personal data
  • 100% secure and certified
  • Approved by the General Intelligence and Security Service

Avoid fines or reputational damage!

Are you going to hire data carriers or have you rented hardware? Or are you disposing of your current IT environment? And do you want to be 100% sure that all the data has been deleted from the systems? Our data wiping specialists will be happy to help you.

Approved by the General Intelligence and Security Service

As you would expect, IRENT always erases all data when the hardware is returned, as well as, restoring systems to their factory-default settings.
Our “certified data wiping” service goes further than this. We use specialist software, approved by the General Intelligence and Security Service and others, which wipes the hardware dozens of times, checking it during the process to ensure that even the tiniest fragments of data are erased. If you’re replacing your current IT environment, we also offer reliable wiping of all your data carriers. And where necessary, we can perform this service on your premises if you can’t allow the hardware to leave the building before the data has been erased.

“Re-using hardware makes a key contribution to the circular economy. Thanks to certified data wiping, even systems that contain sensitive data can be reused.”

Handling personal data with care

As part of our certified data wiping service, once we’ve erased the data, we’ll supply you with a certificate to verify this.  If personal data does end up in the public domain, it’s crucial that you can prove your organisation handled the data with due care. Not only to prevent reputational damage, but also to avoid sizeable fines. The GDPR legislation provides for fines calculated as a small percentage of annual turnover. These fines can easily amount to several million euros.
