Sims Recycling Solutions is offering visitors to the International Policing Exhibition, APA-ACPO 2010, the opportunity to see demonstrations of its mobile data security and data destruction services. The innovative, state-of-the-art data destruction vehicle will be outside the entrance to the exhibition and conference at Manchester Central Convention Complex from June 29 until July 1.  

The company will be running demonstrations throughout each day and visitors are invited to bring along a hard drive, USB stick or other disposable data-bearing device to see for themselves how Sims Recycling Solutions carries out fully auditable, total data and hardware destruction.

Sims Recycling Solutions’ information assurance consultant, Lorraine Roberts, said: “Demand for on-site data destruction services has been growing from police and security services over recent months due to the very sensitive nature of the data which they handle. The police and security services hold information not only on individuals, but also information which could potentially impact on the UK’s national security if the data fell into the hands of criminals. Our clients in the police and security services are looking for the peace of mind that comes from physically witnessing the destruction of their data and receiving fully auditable proof that their data has been completely destroyed through our unique online tracking system, WebView.”

WebView has embedded within it the market-leading data destruction product, Blancco Data Cleaner, which ensures data is destroyed to the highest international security standards, including those of the UK Government. Visitors at APA-ACPO 2010 can watch as their hard drives and other mobile data-bearing devices are firstly registered within WebView before being shredded down to particles no larger than 6mm in size, guaranteeing the total destruction of both the data and the hardware.  

Ms Roberts added: “Despite the total security of our transport and logistics, the biggest factor driving demand for on-site services from the police and security services is that having sensitive data leave their site is simply not an option. As a result, on-site data destruction is quickly becoming the preferred option for many police and security services.”

Sims Recycling Solutions’ mobile secure data shredding service has recently received recommendation to ISO 9001 quality management system, ISO 14001 environmental management system and OHSAS 18001 safety management system.
