Data Erasure & Destruction

Ensuring that sensitive information is never seen nor heard from again...

Secure Data Destruction

DataWreck offers bespoke secure data destruction packages to meet any level of requirements for the environmentally friendly destruction of your sensitive data. We will tailor make a solution for your disposal needs from the segments below to suit your company’s (or personal) mission and values.

Physical Destruction

  • All drives will be degaussed, crushed, shredded and melted down destroying your data permanently. Our data destruction process is comprehensive and thorough ensuring that the most sensitive data can never be retrieved.


  • We have the facilities to provide on-site media destruction which can be witnessed by your staff members. The sanitized media will then be transported back to our depot to complete the destruction and recycling process.

Logical Destruction

  • We can wipe storage media with software allowing it to be re-used. This is a time consuming option which will allow your media to be re-used or re-sold with the peace of mind that your sensitive data can not be recovered.
  • We can use software certified by CESG to wipe storage media with a classification of up to Top Secret. Our standard service offers a US DoD 3 times overwrite. This can be conducted over the whole drive, unallocated space or over specific files or folders.

Security contingent:

  • Certified Professional Security Contractors can be used for the most sensitive contracts.
  • The entire destruction process can be witnessed by our I.T Security Professionals who will itemise each instance of media, document procedures and obtain photographic evidence.
  • A comprehensive range of secure logistics can be provided to transport your media from anywhere in the UK including Government Security cleared drivers, dedicated logistics or DataWreck's own logistical service.
  • Full audit trail & chain of custody provided for all work undertaken.
