Shredding and ITAD Models ≠ Data Protection

The previous industry model for IT asset and data destruction is no longer compliant and is shifting from one focused on used end-point data storage device remarketing, to one focused on the protection of the critical data they contain. The awareness of the new compliance requirements has grown, but there has been a lack of any significant innovation in the data destruction space.

Until now, with TechR2’s Tear-A-Byte® process for the destruction of critical data on end-point storage devices as the only patented, comprehensive and 100% compliant data destruction process.

With multiple locations worldwide, TechR2 is a disruptive technology company - patent holder and software developer focused on destroying critical data on end-point storage devices to ensure our client’s compliance with all global data privacy laws and industry standards.

Not Secure
Outdated data destruction methods are not complaint
  • Traditional ITAD and shredding models fail today’s strict data destruction regulatory requirements
  • Key requirements of GDPR, the NIST Standard and other global regulatory rules for data destruction make clear that controllers of data (that’s you!) must:
  • Ensure work is completed onsite within the 4 walls
  • Have access to IT asset Inventory data within 72 hours
  • Choose the most risk averse processes to follow
  • Ensure process includes Track, Contain, Dispose, Document and Verify steps
  • Enforce a dual authorization program be followed (sanitizer and verifier)
Regulation Tsunami
Regulations for protection of data are proliferating worldwide
  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union has already levied tens of millions in fines
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) became enforceable in 2020 and has generated its first-class action lawsuit
  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Standard which governs all US Federal agencies and 35 states
  • The new Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD) which just became enforceable in 2020
  • The Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CMMC) certification based on NIST Cybersecurity framework required for all Federal contracts Sept. 2020
