E-Waste Security is officially announcing their recent hard drive destruction assignment for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and NASA in Los Angeles, California. NASA, like many government agencies, follow strict guidelines set forth by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) when disposing of digital media such as computer hard drives and backup tapes.

The company’s COO, Gary Scott, provides exclusive comments about this recent work stating, “The NASA project demonstrates our high level of competency and understanding surrounding issues pertinent to secure data destruction.”

NASA will benefit from E-Waste Security’s ability to control and destroy digital media as well as document the destruction process in compliance with NIST 800-88 Guidelines for Media Sanitization. E-Waste Security will also provide NASA with:

  • Onsite data destruction, allowing JPL to have multiple employees witness and verify the destruction of confidential information
  • Physical hard drive shredding, to match the level of destruction that complies with NASA’s security regulations
  • A Certificate of Destruction to provide third-party proof of secure and proper information destruction

Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is not the only data sensitive organization to use E-Waste Security for their data destruction needs. Other clients include companies in the technology, financial and healthcare industries as well as government organizations such as the Department of Human Health Services. E-Waste Security offers the same secure service to smaller companies concerned about their own data security, privacy, ID theft and data breach prevention.  “We provide peace of mind to organizations that must comply with stringent data privacy laws such as HIPAA, GLBA and FACTA,” says Gary Scott.
