Are you a financial company? If you are, you’ll definitely want to learn more about how your business should be GLB compliant. This is another federal regulation that e-End helps you remain in compliance with. This guideline is specific to the financial industry. We know that our clients may not understand all of the rules and regulations, but we are here to help you stay on the right side of the law.
What Does It Mean To Be GLB Compliant?
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act requires financial institutions to safeguard data. It is specifically geared toward financial institutions that offer financial products like loans or investment advice. Due to the sensitive nature of the information obtained through the process, these businesses need to protect their client’s data. If you allow the data to be accessed, then you are actually at risk for legal trouble yourself. You are responsible for the data your company obtains. We can help you protect your data as you upgrade and recycle your equipment.

Safeguarding sensitive data must be adhered to at all times, per GLB requirements. When it comes to asset disposition, you must clear off any data before you refurbish, reuse, sell or recycle. Failure to do so will surely put your data at risk for improper use and subject to fines.
Secure Data Destruction
If you know that you will no longer be using your equipment, then you should be sure to follow the secure data destruction process. Sometimes, businesses will simply store unused equipment, and this actually puts information at risk because anybody can access the unused equipment.
Any data stored on magnetic media such as hard drives, floppy disks, or magnetic tape should be put through the degaussing process so that there is no way to retrieve any data from the equipment. Doing so ensures that you’re following the GLB protocol, which clearly states that you must protect sensitive data.
Proper electronic recycling that includes certified destruction of data will meet all GLB requirements since all sensitive data is removed during the recycling process.
Hard Drive Shredding
Some people assume that simply deleting data means that you’ll never have to worry about it again. However, if you really want to be sure nobody can access the data, you must put it through a hard drive shredding process. This processing guarantees that there is absolutely no data left behind.
