Data Risk and Your Business


RDC supports your security requirements

As an organisation whose core service is data eradication, it is imperative that RDC are fully compliant with all the current relevant legislation surrounding data security. As a mandatory requirement in the Cabinet Office Security Policy Framework (SPF) document, all public sector bodies must meet the requirements outlined in the latest version of CESG (Communications Electronics Security Group - the UK Governments' national technical authority for Information Assurance) IA Standard No. 5 'Secure Sanitisation'.

Having typically played a leading role in the public sector, CESG are now expanding their base to also include the private sector, in an attempt to offer a universal level for sanitisation of sensitive information held on IT no longer required by the organisation. As such, the previous incarnation has been superseded with a new version to cover their expanding remit.

How it helps

It is the view of CESG that the customer should dictate how they wish to have their redundant IT equipment and subsequent data handled. RDC, as the market leader, is at the forefront of the latest standards and works closely with the customer to determine the best solution for the processing and eradication of data-bearing devices. It is for this reason that RDC are in possession of the most up-to-date version of the relevant documents.

CESG now direct businesses and public sector organisations to the CPA (Commercial Products Assurance) - a list of certified products suitable to comply with the above standard. This means that instead of a service offering, RDC can now confirm the products used in the processing meet with CESG standards.
