Whether GDPR or data leaks, whether business or private - many reasons speak for a secure destruction of data media. In order to securely destroy data and thus protect it from improper access by third parties, a simple deletion is often not sufficient.

This way you remain GDPR-compliant and avoid data leaks, damage to your reputation and penalties.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other data protection laws in Germany (e.g. BDSG) place high requirements on the protection of personal data. Business data (e.g. customer data) is also often sensitive and requires confidential handling. In order to protect this data from prying eyes when disposing of data carriers, a secure destruction of the data carriers is necessary. A simple deletion of the data on a data carrier allows a recovery of the data due to the data carrier‘s technical design. Even deleting encrypted data carriers may not be effective under certain circumstances, since, for example, if the hard disk encryption is incomplete, temporary files can be stored unencrypted and can be restored after simple deletion. Only the physical destruction of data carriers gives customers the certainty that the data has actually been irretrievably destroyed according to the current state of technology.
The chain of control is maintained throughout. Customers' packages reach Nitrokey with tracking and tracing. The data carriers are then stored in a sealed security container. The collection, transport and final destruction of the data carriers is carried out by a certified service provider in a consistently controlled process.
The destruction of the data media is carried out by the service provider Rhenus Data Office GmbH in accordance with GDPR, BDSG, and DIN 66399. The following protection classes and security levels are applied in accordance with DIN 66399.
Protection class 2: This is suitable for confidential data with high protection requirements, such as information that is restricted to a small group of people.
Nitrokey accepts data carriers from the following storage types:
- O - optical data carriers (CDs/DVDs etc.)
- T - magnetic data carriers (floppy disks, ID cards etc.)
- H - hard drives with magnetic media and SSDs
- E - electronic media (USB sticks, SD cards, chip cards, etc.).
The destruction of the data carriers is carried out in accordance with the following security levels, depending on the type of memory. These security levels indicate how large the remaining particles are after shredding. In this case, the security levels mentioned meet the requirements to be suitable for the secure destruction of information of protection class 2 (see above).
