It is not uncommon for businesses and agencies to be completely unaware that their e-Waste service must follow federal guidelines. You are required by law to protect sensitive information regarding your business, employees, customers, and any other confidential information that your business obtains and stores on IT equipment. Companies big and small must adhere to these guidelines or face hefty fines or other legal ramifications. e-End is here to provide services that adhere to those requirements.
What Does It Mean To Be FISMA Compliant?
The Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 is an overhaul and update of the federal government’s cybersecurity requirements. Essentially, businesses are required to protect against cyber-attacks and other breaches that may occur to obtain sensitive data information. Failure to do so will put your business at risk for legal ramifications.
FISMA Compliant e-Waste Services
e-End makes sure that our clients are in FISMA compliance every step of the way. Here are the services that we offer to ensure that you remain on the right side of the federal guidelines.
Cybersecurity ensures that personal information is protected. Asset disposition plays a key role because you must wipe a device clean of sensitive information before it is updated and renewed for someone else to buy and use.
Secure Data Destruction
FISMA requires that proper cybersecurity is employed to protect the most vulnerable information. Secure data destruction does just that. Through this process, data is completely destroyed so that nobody can use it for other purposes.
e-End is certified to sanitize all magnetic storage media so that it is not possible to extract data from devices such as floppy disks, hard disk drives and magnetic tapes. This ensures that 100% of the data is removed from the equipment so that your business is in complete compliance when you decide to get rid of those items. You don’t have to worry about a cyber attack when there is no information that can be successfully retrieved.
Before you undergo electronic recycling services, your equipment must be totally wiped clean. This means that whatever e-Waste service is best for your device should be completed, and then the product must be directly sent into the recycling process.
Hard Drive Shredding
Hard drive shredding guarantees that there is no vulnerable data that may put your business at risk for a cyber attack. Going through this process is yet another layer of protection that ensures that you comply with FISMA requirements.
