Regulatory Compliance Standards
PureITAD works with out clients in designing data destruction policies that not only meet, but exceed regulatory compliance requirements.
A few of these regulatory compliance standards that we work with are:
Some of the requirements outlined by the PCI DSS specifically relate to managing your physical equipment. Entities that process payment card data must have data retention and disposal policies in place. Physical access to cardholder data must be restricted with security measures such as video monitoring, locked doors, and restricted accessibility to computer networks. The destruction of digital media is also addressed when it is no longer necessary.
Failure to comply with PIPEDA can have serious consequences for your organization. Working with an accredited data destruction expert will eliminate risks of data breach that can not only have financial consequences, but can also be very damaging to one’s brand.
Clearly, with the joint liability rules and the need for detailed documentation and full audit trail on how data is managed, processed and destroyed, businesses and IT Asset Disposition firms alike will need to develop a transparent and unified view on how they manage secure asset disposal and how they verify that the data asset was destroyed in line with the regulations. It is therefore crucial to insure that the data processor is an experienced and accredited firm that is capable of offering full compliance transparency, at every step of the way.
