KCS has partnered with ProDevice to bring to the Kuwait market their latest cost-effective secure data destruction devices for all sectors to enforce data security and to avoid data leaks and flow compliance standards.

Data destruction is data protection ; What role does data destruction play in cybersecurity?

Recent popular data breaches and the introduction of Local Data Protection Regulations in several Countries, contributed to increase business’ and individual’s awareness about the importance of raising the security level of the informatic systems.

Data are the biggest asset of a company and the capacity to protect the data properly during its whole lifetime is becoming a discriminant for identifying and quantifying the reliability of a company. The information life cycle, in a simplified way, consists of three phases: generation, transformation and destruction.

ProDevice makes secure devices and procedures for the data destruction and disposal of media carriers, as proactive solutions to improve the internal cybersecurity policies, in full compliance with Local Data Protection Regulations and with the highest security standards.

DEGAUSSERS

Data lifecycle management is a data management process aimed to increase the efficiency and life cycle of the data from the creation, storage to destruction, which help the related process automatically continue according to the set criteria.

The Lifecycle Management Data Phase consists of 6 main phases

  • Data collection
  • Data access
  • Data usage
  • Data storage
  • Data transfer
  • Data destruction

Data might be stored in forms of text, picture or audio in main media channels including papers or other electronic media such as computers, phones, hard disks, tapes, CD and USB.

Therefore, every process needs to be designed to determine a person who would be able to access and the storage format. And, the unused data also need to be destroyed safely. Because the importance of data management is to not only help the data to be used more efficiently, but also to increase confidence that important information will not leak into the public.

Data Remanence is the residual representation of digital data that remains even after attempts have been made to remove or erase the data. This residue may result from data being left intact by a nominal file deletion operation, by reformatting of storage media that does not remove data previously written to the media, or through physical properties of the storage media that allow previously written data to be recovered. Data remanence may make inadvertent disclosure of sensitive information possible should the storage media be released into an uncontrolled environment (e.g., thrown in the trash or lost). 

Data sanitization: Data sanitization is the disciplined process of deliberately, permanently and irreversibly removing or destroying the data stored on a memory device to make it unrecoverable. A device that has been sanitized has no usable residual data, and even with the assistance of advanced forensic tools, the data will not ever be recovered. 

Various techniques have been developed to counter data remanence. These techniques are classified as clearing, purging/sanitizing, or destruction. Specific methods include overwriting, degaussing, encryption, and media destruction.
