A recent article on DC Inno summarizes the Ponemon Institute’s latest study and report on data breaches in the United States. The study focuses on
Degaussing is the process of totally erasing data by reducing or eliminating an unwanted magnetic field (information) stored on tape and disk media. A degausser is a machine that changes the magnetic domain (where the data is stored) of magnetic data storage devices.
When the degausser is applied to magnetic domains the information is scrambled into random patterns, making the data stored in the magnetic domain unreadable. The correct use of a the appropriate degausser will ensure that information is no longer retrievable.
Securis provides both on-site and off-site hard drive, backup LTO and DLT tape degaussing services. Our NSA approved LM4 degausser is used for optimum data destruction. Our hard drive and tape degaussing service options are fully compliant with all National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication Series 800-88 and National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Operating Manual (DOD 5220.22-M). Our degausser is re-certified annually by the manufacturer
