The regulatory landscape of the electronic disposal industry is ever changing and involves both sensitive data and hazardous materials, that's why at NCMSS risk elimination and accountability are among our top priorities. We eliminate risks rather than assuming them, so you can have the peace of mind that comes with zero liability.
Our staff has undergone rigorous testing in order to obtain the industry's highest certifications- something we freely provide documented proof of. With NCMSS, you can rest assured you and your company are compliant with all legal requirements and fully protected at every stage of the process, because we settle for nothing less.
Data security is vital to preventing identity theft, loss of intellectual property, trade secrets, employee records, and financial information. A single mishandled or unsecured hard drive can expose any company to severe brand and reputational harm, litigation, and even financial penalties. Unfortunately, despite current regulations that require the proper handling of private data, many IT assets are still left unsecure, but not at NCMSS. From the time your assets leave your facility to the point that all digital data has been annihilated, your IT assets are monitored.
Our certified process includes stringent security protocols and protected facilities to ensure all of your data is secure. You'll receive accurate, timely reports and a final certificate verifying your data destruction. This certificate provides the necessary documentation to meet federal regulations.
Speaking of regulations, before you hire a data destruction company, there are some key regulations you should be aware of that NCMSS will provide compliance with.
The Fair and Accurate Transaction Act (FACTA)specifies acceptable methods for the destruction of all personal information within data contained on electronic devices. These guidelines must be followed in the erasure or destruction of electronic media when entering into a contract with a third party engaged in the business of information destruction.
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)establishes policies for device and media control that govern the receipt and removal of hardware and electronic media to protect the privacy of individual customer's financial information. All financial institutions are subject to the GLBA safeguard.
The Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act (ITADA) focuses on the control of key identification data, such as driver license information and social security numbers, to prevent identity theft.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)requires confidentiality of medical records and protected health information.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)is a federal law that requires protection of student privacy and educational records. This law applies to all educational institutions that received funds under an applicable program of the U.S Department of Education.
The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)requires federal agencies to develop, document, and implement agency-wide information security systems.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)requires companies to demonstrate consistent record keeping to verify SEC filings with matching physical and electronic documentation.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)defines compliancy standards for enterprise hardware, software, processes and policies set forth to protect customer account data. This legislation is designed to improve security in the credit card industry.
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA)is a federal law governing the appropriate cleanup and handling of hazardous waste sites.
As you can imagine, having a company that is experienced and knowledgeable in the electronics reuse and recycling business is important with so many legal regulations to consider. Our expertise in just that has made us the leading e-recycler in the Bay area. We navigate the maze of federal, state, and international regulatory requirements so you don't have to and provide secure tracking of all of your assets from collection to destruction in the process.
