Protecting your data.
Protecting data is essential. Data security is not only important while equipment is in use, but also long after it’s been retired. Improper data sanitization can expose you to legal, financial and PR risks. How do you protect information on outdated equipment? Simply deleting it is not enough.
When you lease with CSI, you have a built-in data security program in place for equipment that is no longer in use. Our strict processes help you meet the highest standards and regulations and, best of all, give you peace of mind.
The following steps outline our data security program:
STEP 1: Equipment is collected by our appointed courier and returned directly to the processing warehouse.
STEP 2: Upon arrival, returned equipment is moved directly into a secure area with limited access.
STEP 3: Within this secure area, hard drives on all equipment are sanitized using the industry-leading software which meets government standards. Any drives that fail to wipe clean are fully destroyed.
STEP 4: A verification certificate for each serial number is provided for your records.
All equipment returns are processed by our global asset returns provider. Because of this, CSI can provide a consistently high level of service without the problems and insecurities of engaging an unknown third party.
