When it is time to dispose of documents and computers which hold sensitive data, you don't want them to end up in dumpsters and landfills, a prime territory for thieves and hackers.

FTK Group both onsite and offsite destruction programs that mechanically destroy hard drives, data tapes and miscellaneous components, rendering all critical or sensitive information 100% irretrievable. The onsite paper destruction system shreds large quantities of clients documents into random pieces, making it impossible to retrieve the information. The destruction processes of FTK Group partners meet and exceed the requirements set forth in the NAID (National Association for Information Destruction) certification.

Clients are welcome to witness the destruction or the process can be recorded. Every process is documented with a Certificate of Destruction for the clients records.

Onsite Facility Security
FTK Group knows that clients information is important to them and needs to be safe guarded from being compromised. This is why they have spared no expense in securing their facility:

  • multi camera-camera surveillance system
  • State-of-the-art card entry/access control system
  • Motion and window breakage sensors
  • Individuals are searched upon exit of the facility
  • Hard drives are locked and isolated prior to destruction


Secure Collection
Every stage of the FTK Group destruction and recycling process is secure:

  • Materials are packaged in sealed, locked and bar-coded collection containers
  • Materials are asset tracked through the destruction process
  • Items are transported in a secure GPS tracked truck
  • Hard drive tracking is available at clients location, prior to transport
  • Bar coding system tracks materials from arrival to destruction


Processing Security
FTK Group takes all the steps necessary to provide clients with the most secure processing security:

  • Destruction processes at partner facilities adhere to requirements set in the NAID Standard
  • Hard drives are triple wiped and verified for complete erasure or sent immediately for shredding

  • All critical data is rendered unidentifiable and irretrievable
