Meeting NCSC & NHS Guidance on Data Sanitization

Jul 05, 2022 Solution Brief

If you are a UK healthcare organization, or part of a National Health Service (NHS) network or trust, you might be familiar with NHS guidelines on good practices for sensitive data disposal and sanitization on data storage devices and active data.

These recommendations are vital for ensuring organizations mitigate risks of information disclosure, and that patients’ personally identifiable information (PII) and other critical or sensitive data is securely erased. This can minimize potential data leaks including the associated risks with IT asset chain of custody and inappropriate, non-certified data destruction methods. Furthermore, they assist organizations in conforming to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) guidance on Secure Sanitization of Storage Media.
