Full range of data eradication and disposal solutions
ADL Process provides a full range of data eradication services to meet your needs:
  • Off-site data destruction
    Devices are sent to our secured facilities to be physically destroyed in shredders. The shredded remains are sorted and recycled responsibly. For clients who require complete physical obliteration of the devices, we can send the shredded remains to a high temperature incinerator for smelting. Clients can also request to witness physical destruction of devices.
  • On-site data degauss and punch
    Our team comes to your location to perform degaussing, the process of running magnetic interference on data storage devices to render them unreadable. A hole is punched in each device to render them inoperable. We take custody of the processed devices back to our facility to be recycled responsibly. For added protection, we offer on-site shredding for large volumes of devices.

Data Destruction in Action

Company X offers legal services and has detailed case information on electronic devices (hard drives, USB sticks, external drives…). The IT manager needs to dispose of a third of the electronic inventory as part of a technology upgrade companywide. She has read about her responsibilities under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), and decided to contract ADL Process to eradicate all the data devices in order to protect her company, its clients and its employees. ADL Process identified the needs of Company X and developed a plan to address them while complying with Company X internal policies as follows:

  • On-site degauss and punch witnessed by the IT manager with inventory list provided by Company X
  • Shipment to ADL Process with inventory list of received items and storage in controlled access area with video surveillance
  • Off-site data destruction by shredding to physically destroy the devices recorded by video surveillance
  • Issuance of certificate of destruction
  • Recycling of materials from shredded remains of data devices

The IT manager is satisfied that Company X’s position on data security is fully compliant with PIPEDA and her internal policies.
