What is Hard Drive and Tape degaussing?
Degaussing is a pre-destruction degaussing process often used by the UK Governments and UK military forces to destroy data for good. It is the technical process of securely sanitising magnetic media from hard drives and tapes that contains sensitive information to render the data irretrievable and to become fully GDPR compliant.
Data thieves can sometimes recover and read digital data even after it’s been deleted or overwritten. Degaussing uses a powerful magnetic field to completely remove the data from tapes and hard drives so that it can never be read again.
Products recommended for this process are removable magnetic media such as hard drives, backup tapes and floppy disks.
