Does your GDPR have a plan for what happens to data storage media, ie, your hard drives, DAT tapes, floppy drives, smartphones etc. at end of life? The only absolutely secure way is to shred the drives, tapes and smartphones in an industrial shredder such as what we have at Electronic Recycling. If it’s not shredded it is not secure. For those interested in sustainability, we also have an option of securely shredding the data and saving the drive should your drive be reusable.
