There are a number of computer disposal companies working in the surrey area. However most of them are what you might call scrap metal merchants. It is one of the most affluent counties in the UK and hence there is a significant computer disposal volume each month. The risk of a serious data protection breach is compounded by the proliferation of computer disposal providers that are not regulated or audited. I have seen a number of small companies propose to dispose of IT and data carrying devices with not so much as a side glance at proper procedure. Some small companies are very conscious of their obligations to customers when dealing with IT disposal and they deserve to be rewarded with further trade. The ones that do not pay proper attention to security procedures do not deserve further trade but it may be too late for the customer’s reputation if there has been a serious data breach.
