NEW YORK STATE SECURE ONSITE HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION
NYS Data Privacy Regulations Require That You Destroy All Personally Sensitive Data Prior To The Disposal Of Obsolete Data Assets
Your Organization is at RISK with Every Uninformed IT Asset Disposal Decision
IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT YOUR INTERNAL DATA SECURITY NEEDS
The NYS Electronic Waste Recycling and Reuse Act specifically states that NYS authorized electronic recycling facilities have “no” data liability.
Recognizing your significant data privacy regulatory responsibility you must make sure that your IT asset disposal vendor is a qualified secure data destruction service provider.
DATA PRIVACY COMPLIANT HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION
Federal (HIPAA, GLBA), Industry (PCI) and State (ID Theft) data privacy regulations have highly specific requirements for the destruction of obsolete personally sensitive data. They require that the data be destroyed according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-88 “Guidelines for Media Sanitization”. They further state that third-party data destruction services must meet required vendor due diligence standards.
Back Thru The Future® provides NIST approved onsite hard drive shredding and degaussing services. BTTF is among a select few licensed electronic recycling businesses that is also NAID AAA certified as a secure data destruction operation for both plant-based and mobile hard drive shredding. NAID certification, as a recognized industry security standard, serves to satisfy vendor due diligence requirements.
New NYS DFS Regulation 23 NYCRR 500 Effective 3/1/17 Requires All NYS Based Financial Services Businesses to Reassess Your Data Destruction Procedure.

SOLID STATE STORAGE DEVICES ARE HERE
Onsite shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing SSD and solid state cards. This is the NIST approved method of data destruction for solid state data storage devices. Any other method of sanitization represents a highly technical and time consuming effort with questionable effectiveness. Most mobile communication and computing devices use solid state data storage. Server hard drives are rapidly incorporating solid state data storage components. The sanitization of solid state storage devices is becoming a significant data security challenge. Adopting onsite SSD shredding as your universal data destruction process eliminates the technical challenges of sanitizing solid state media and provides a one-stop solution to all of your data destruction needs in NYS.
