Data Containment Units (DCUs) can be supplied as an additional service to our customers. A DCU is a lockable unit designed to store old hard drives, tapes, DVDs and other electronic media in a secure location awaiting final data destruction. Each DCU can hold approximately 100 hard drives (larger units are available on request) and helps ensure drives are not lost, which could lead to a costly data breach.

For customers who opt to take a DCU, CSI Lifecycle Services will arrange regular collections on a monthly or quarterly basis, or as often as is required. Our Data Destruction Recycling Vehicle (DDRV) will arrive onsite and the DCU can be unlocked once loaded onto the vehicle providing a highly secure chain of custody. Once on the vehicle, hard drives and other media can be removed from the container and then securely destroyed.

If you would be interested in installing a Data Containment Unit on your premises or obtaining a quotation, please get in touch by completing the form below or calling us on 0114 399 3900.
