Our Monthly collection of Whitepapers will cover such topics as the “tsunami” of compliance regulations (with punitive data privacy laws), Cyber Security Maturity Model Certification by the Department of Defense (requiring third-party audits and certification) and more.
The personal banking information for thousands of Facebook employees was stolen last month. The data breach reportedly occurred when someone stole multiple unencrypted physical hard drives from a Facebook payroll staffer’s car.
To bring you into compliance, immediate, critical support is needed to rectify your existing processes based on Arrow’s outdated former ITAD services to the new required data destruction methods.

Another example of organizations losing control of their loose data bearing media just came to light in the Netherlands and will have significant GDPR related fine implications. The Prime Minister of the Netherlands has to be asking his Minister of Health, Welfare and Sports what happened after two external hard disks with a backup of 6.9 million donor forms with registrations and changes to the Donor Register in the period 1998-2010 have been lost. End of life or decommissioned loose data bearing devices need to be addressed as part of a complete cyber security strategy.
Many people get rid of data bearing devices (laptops, phones, etc) with their own personal/critical data on them without thinking BUT organizations often do as well (also your data!). The compliant destruction of data on loose data bearing devices in an enterprise or datacenter environment is now required to be a part any company’s cyber security strategy!
Washington State University learned a costly lesson after a hard drive containing the personal information of more than a million people was stolen from a self-storage locker.
