Data Overwriting and Destruction

An issue for some equipment donors is the ability to ensure that any residual data is effectively made inaccessible. TDI Connect has four approaches to gain the required level of data erase and security.

TDI Connect machines are all loaded with the Xubuntu variant of the Linux operating system. Whatever approach to data destruction best suits our donors, the Xubuntu operating system is always loaded on the machines. The loading of the operating system reformats the hard drive for the Xubuntu operating system. This TDI Connect standard operating procedure provides a standard removal of all data from the hard drive.

For more details on data destruction options, see our Data Overwriting and Destruction document.
