Data Erasure and Media Shredding Services by Recycle Emirates as per US DoD and ISO 27001 Standards
DOD DATA WIPE
When you get rid of your old computer, you need to permanently wipe the information on your hard drive to protect sensitive and proprietary information. Simply clearing the drive by traditional methods — deleting files or even formatting the drive — isn’t enough; these files can be easily recovered by anyone skilled at data recovery. Data wiping is the process that permanently deletes all information from your hard drive. This goes beyond simply reformatting the drive — especially in cases where highly sensitive data is involved. We adhere to the NIST 800-88 standard (http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=50819).
Recycle Emirates provides affordable data wipes as part of our spectrum of services. Our pledge is to help you protect your data in the afterlife of your used computer equipment. Recycle Emirates offers data wiping both on-site at our secure facility in SAIF Zone, UAE and off-site. The method for data wiping we use at Recycle Emirates is proprietary software based to overwrite your original data. The software we use is the following: Wipedrive by White Canyon . Blancco by Blancco Solutions.
Data wiping does not destroy the device, it removes all data thereby making the disk reusable for refurbishing and resale because it is still operable. If your company’s protocol calls for destruction of the device, we also offer degaussing, electronic media/hard drive shredding, and incineration.

DOD-LEVEL (CLASSIFIED) DATA WIPING
Due to the sensitive, classified, and top secret nature of the information at the Department of Defense, they have set requirements for data wipes. Recycle Emirates provides this level of data wiping as a standard part of our services. A DoD wipe requires that a computer’s information be overwritten seven times to be considered unrecoverable. A basic wipe is 90% unrecoverable, and a DoD level wipe is 10X times unrecoverable. This may seem like a procedure necessary only for government agencies or big corporations — but it’s not. If your old computer falls into the wrong hands, any sensitive information on your hard drive could lead to identity theft, the loss of industry secrets, or other fraud.
If you need official documentation for the destruction of your data and used computer equipment, we also offer complete Audit Services as well as Certificates of Proper Disposal.
OFF-SITE WITNESSED DESTRUCTION
The threat of identity theft means that destruction of old media, such as hard drives, CD’s and backup tapes is a serious concern. You’re the only one responsible for the proper disposal of your sensitive data. Overwriting and degaussing hard drives, tapes and other magnetic media is no longer the solution. According to a recent audit performed by the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, sensitive information was found on internal computer hard drives that had been certified as “wiped” clean prior to disposal. To be certain that all data are irrecoverable, physical destruction by shredding the storage media or hard drive is the only viable choice.
Recycle Emirates can provide both Offsite and Onsite Data and Media destruction Services as per US DoD and ISO 27001 Standards.
ON-SITE WITNESSED DESTRUCTION
For your total convenience and security, Recycle Emirates now offers on-site witnessed physical data destruction service. Recycle Emirates can come to any of your locations and perform on-site data destruction, by degaussing and/or shredding your magnetic media even before removal and disassembly of your electronic equipment takes place. This on-site service is most advantageous for customers who wish to minimize the change of custody in order to preserve maximum data security and accountability within their own organization. On-site data destruction allows the customer to watch the process take place without leaving their facility.
Recycle Emirates is certified ISO 127001 (Information Security Management certification) and conforms to US Dept of Defense

Recycle Emirate’s quality control procedures are second to none, during shredding projects at our facility, both shredding technicians and customers witnessing the destruction must follow our safety and environmental guidelines.

We will securely seal all crates of your media prior to transportation to our secure shredding facility. We provide all of our customers with Certificates of Destruction and offer our customers full indemnity for their data and electronic equipment.
SECURE LOGISTICAL SUPPORT
Recycle Emirates can accommodate customers located all over the world with our secure logistical support option. Every customer is different in terms of their shipping of data for destruction. We understand that secure logistics is just as vital as the actual destruction service. For smaller corporate and government projects in remote locations, Recycle Emirates will dispatch suitable, durable, shipping and storage containers with padlocks and security seals. These containers are typically used by the military, aerospace and mobile communications industries. When the containers arrive, your staff will load the containers with your hard drives or other media. Your staff will then secure the containers with the padlocks and security seals prior to shipping them back to the Recycle Emirates secure shredding facility. We can provide references of corporations that have used this shipping service as their preferred destruction method.
