Data Destruction Services Guide

ISIA Guide to Procuring Secure Data Destruction Services.

The Irish Security Industry Association ISIA have recently released a guide so that organisations outsourcing their data destruction are provided with advice that they can follow when procuring these services and gives them an understanding of what is considered best practice. The treatment of personal or secure data is an area of high importance to organisations, the reasoning behind why third parties are entrusted to manage the destruction of this confidential data.


The members of the Secure Data Destruction of the ISIA recognised this and have worked to develop a guide for organisations who are looking to procure secure data destruction services. When destroying information that an organisation has been holding securely, the organisation needs to ensure that the information is destroyed in an equally secure manner.


In a business environment, it can be difficult and time-consuming to gain the required knowledge to determine the correct method of security destroying data when it is ready for disposal. This guidance document breaks it down to precise and clear information.


The guidelines provide practical advice that may be used when selecting a Secure Destruction service provider.  Based around the EN 15713 Secure Destruction Standard the ISIA Guide to Procuring Secure Data Destruction Services covers areas such as:

  •       Security Screening of Personnel
  •       Collection and Retention of Confidential Material
  •       Collection Vehicles used for Offsite Destruction
  •       Contracts and Subcontracting –
  •       Mobile Shredding Vehicles used for Onsite Destruction
  •       Material Recycled
  •       Destruction Facility
