Data Destruction & Benefits Of R&R’s Services

What is Data Destruction?

With R&R Data Managed Services the data destruction process transcends the type of simple and ineffective deletion of data or formatting that can be achieved with widely available software tools.

Data destruction is the complete removal of data from all types of computer media, so that it can under no circumstances be accessed at a later date. This process ensures that the data is physically and irretrievably removed from media including hard drives, tape drives, and CDs.

With R&R Data Managed Services the data destruction process transcends the type of simple and ineffective deletion of data or formatting that can be achieved with widely available software tools.

Compliance and protection against Fraud and Identity Theft

For industry our services are just what you need to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, which states that Data on equipment and media must be disposed of or eliminated so that it cannot, under any circumstances, be used against an individual or organisation.

The affects of Identity Theft

Identity theft is the fastest growing type of fraud in the UK and costs businesses and individuals £1.72 billion each year. With this potential it is now essential for you to dispose of your data in a secure manner.

Government Home Office figures have estimated that more than 100,000 people are affected by identity theft in the UK each year and research carried out in Bedfordshire alone shows that a staggering 90% of disposed of computers contain sensitive data that could easily be used to steal individual identities. This data is retrievable within two to three minutes.

Even if you delete your data regularly or have reformatted your hard disk drive to delete your old files, your information is still retrievable and provides an easy way for criminals to steal your identity.


R&R Data Managed Services will ensure that your data is destroyed beyond any means of retrieval. All Data will be destroyed in a confidential, environmentally friendly, safe and secure environment.

At no extra cost we will provide you with a Certificate of destruction and recycling if required.
