Have you ever asked yourself why secure data erasure is so important for GDPR compliance?
You might think simply restoring factory settings or wiping a chunk of data will suffice for GDPR compliance, but it won’t.
Under Article 17, GDPR introduces a right for individuals to have personal data erased. This requires organisations to completely remove all the data they hold on an individual if that person requests it and must also be able to prove they’ve properly wiped their records with an auditable process.
If you don’t use the right data erasure tools to delete personal data, you cannot be certain that this has been removed correctly and could face a huge fine if you fail to comply to the GDPR data protection principles.
Data that has not been deleted correctly can also be easily recovered, which is extremely attractive to certain threat actors seeking to exploit ineffective procedures.
Using our 4Secure erase, you will immediately eradicate all of this worry. With its rigorous certification process and approval of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) under the CPA scheme, 4Secure erase is able to assert compliance to the highest standards.
