Data Sanitization

It is the goal of PowerON to destroy data from e-scrap as soon as possible. There are generally three methods for destroying data that will be employed at PowerON. These methods include: Electronic data sanitization, Reset devices to original factory settings with installed firmware/software, or Physical destruction.

Electronic Data Sanitization – Hard Drives

The electronic data sanitization is conducted by PowerON in the device audit areas utilizing enterprise software applications running on a dedicated server. The standard level of data sanitization offered by PowerON includes a single pass zero overwrite for magnetic hard drives, removal of any host protected areas (HPA) and device configuration overlay (DCO), a verification of data sanitation, and a "fingerprint" file written to the device at the end of the process. Solid state and hybrid drives will go through a multi-process sanitation procedure. This includes performing the ATA command of “Secure Erase”, removal of any host protected areas (HPA) and device configuration overlay (DCO), performing the ATA command of “TRIM”, a single pass zero overwrite, a verification of data sanitation, and a "fingerprint" file written to the device at the end of the process. Customer requirements may dictate additional levels of security, and will be noted on the work order providing instructions from the sales department to the processing technicians. The wiping station records pertinent data related to the wiped drives in a database. This data is exported and/or backed up to the facility’s servers, and is maintained as a record of the data eradication.

Factory Reset

The other data containing devices including; mp3 players, PDAs, networking equipment, cellular telephones, and gaming consoles that do not contain hard drives will be data sanitized by the manufacturers instructions for a wipe and or reset to factory default settings. VOIP telephones and non-enterprise class networking peripherals are not considered to contain data requiring data security measures. No data eradication efforts will be documented for these items. After wiping, the technicians will verify no data files remain in the accessible memory to verify data removed. The information relating to the equipment such as type, model, serial number as well as the procedure used to remove the data, date of data eradication, and operator who eradicated the data shall be recorded in the facility operating records. No specific format is required for the data collection, as the equipment can change the requirements from day to day.

Physical Destruction

Physical Destruction of data containing devices may occur with the facilities hard drive shredder or at a subcontracted facility. Some data such as CD/DVD ROM optical disks are required to be shredded to 0.22 millimeter in the largest dimension. Data devices typically have circuit boards. Some circuit boards and other FMs may be removed prior to shredding. If customer or data security requirements indicate an item with a circuit board and other FMs removed by shredded, segregate the shredder fluff from those items as FM containing materials. Items that are unable to be data sanitized by other methods will be disassembled to remove FMs where possible and/or data containing devices. The data devices will be shred in a manner to prevent recreation of the data they once contained. In some cases cellular telephones may be collected and shed with only the battery removed.
