Data Cleansing Services

Currently the European Union has accepted the new law on Data Protection; The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR will replace the current Directive and will be directly applicable in all EU Member States without the need for implementing national legislation.

One of the leading principles behind the GDPR is to protect European citizens’ rights by keeping their personal data safe, but what about businesses? Regardless of the sector, a unified data protection regulation offers a streamlined way of working with data throughout the EU. Every company needs to evaluate their data processing and security practices to ensure they comply with the GDPR when it comes into effect.

New technologies like document server and scan-to-email functionality increase the amount of personal and confidential information contained on printers and multi-function devices. This presents a risk during the disposal of end-of-life equipment or when devices leave your premises.

Ricoh’s secure disposal service removes, beyond recovery, any residual information contained on your end-of-contract devices. The recommended service offered by Ricoh is the full data cleansing service which includes the mandatory use of certified HDD Data Erasure software. All data – both physical and digital – is eliminated, and along with it your security risks. Each step is documented to provide you with auditable proof that your data has been disposed of securely.
