Organisations often use a lot of data-carrying hardware. These devices are often discarded at the end of their lifecycle. When the sensitive data on your discarded hardware falls into the wrong hands, it can have huge consequences for an organisation. Moreover, you also have to deal with the ‘mandatory data breach notification’ law and the GDPR.
There is reason enough to be extremely careful with discarded hardware. Do not take any risks with your company data on data carriers and have them destroyed safely, quickly and certified by CTC IT Solutions.
Please note: this service is for business customers only, not for private individuals.
In addition to regular and external hard disks, we also destroy other types of used data carriers. Think of SSD disks, tapes, smartphones, PDAs and other phones. But you have also come to the right place for the destruction of USB sticks, SD cards, magnetic tapes, ID cards and more. If required, we will remove the hard disks from the equipment free of charge.
Our data carrier destruction process is simple, yet highly effective and safe. Our efforts are entirely focused on completely unburdening you. We are fully certified and comply with all applicable laws and directives.

Every customer has specific requirements. Our approach is fully geared to them. Thus, at CTC you can have your data carriers destroyed in several ways. First, we can destroy your data carriers in our professionally secured Servicecenter in Nieuwegein. If you choose this option, we will collect the data carriers using our own transport. This is the most economical option for you.
A second option is that we destroy the data carriers at your premises with our mobile shredder. This further reduces the risk of data leaks. Someone from your organisation can be physically present during the actual destruction of the data carriers. For data security reasons, it is not possible to deliver your data carriers to our Service Centre yourself.
A shredder is used to shred data carriers into small pieces. After all, physical destruction guarantees that data are permanently unusable. Our powerful shredder has steel blades suitable for shredding metal enclosures. In this process, the solid steel blades rotate in opposite directions, “swallowing” the data carrier, so to speak. The video at the top of this page clearly shows this process.
The waste products from the destruction process are recycled and put back into circulation in an environmentally friendly way. This preserves important and scarce raw materials. The entire process is certified according to ISO 14001, 9001 and 27001. This guarantees a professional and safe disposal procedure. Our procedures fully comply with all strict environmental standards.
Data carrier destruction is the perfect choice when equipment no longer has any residual value. Or when your company policy dictates it. Did you know that in some situations there are still interesting alternatives to full data destruction?
The best method for data destruction depends on the type of media, the sensitivity of the data and the end-of-life value of the assets.
Sometimes companies try to destroy the data themselves in-house. This is usually not time-efficient and has its risks. CTC IT Solutions has all the expertise and experience to carry out data carrier destruction efficiently and professionally for you.
Our data carrier destruction service meets the extremely strict DIN 66399 and ISO/IEC 21964 standards:
