TechR2 RFID Tags Will Enable Full Verification of Any Disk Drive Destruction


The tracking of removable or portable media has become critical due to the large amount of sensitive, confidential, personal and identifiable information contained in any such media.

Loss and theft ranks high as the primary means by which sensitive data is inadvertently disclosed to sources of ill will. In the case of portable media, any kind of information release could occur while storage hardware is taken off-line and / or retired without proper erasure. In some cases, attempted conventional means to overwrite data on drives not conducted by credible and certified means can lead to improper overwrite of all sectors on the drive.

Existing reporting laws and regulations such as; GLBA, HIPAA, SB1386 and US Safe Harbor, EU Data Protection Directives emphasize the need for compliance of their requirements for tracking the location of sensitive information and the ability to maintain control of it. In essence, when media that potentially contains sensitive information goes unaccounted for, the costs that are associated with remediation and reporting losses can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. As an example, based on actual case history, a lost laptop drive can easily cost over $95 million dollars in lost labor and out-of-pocket expenses, not to mention the cost of reputation damage and the cost of governmental fines, audit requirements and civil litigation.


TechR2 RFID tags can be placed on any metal mobile equipment and disk drives, providing a unique identifier and near perfect read as disk drives are destroyed. The TechR2 RFID tag is also destroyed in the destruction process, thereby providing complete verification in the disk drive destruction cycle.


The support to management’s intent for appropriate control of sensitive information is demonstrable by the TechR2 RFID program and the verification of disk destruction. Return on investment is in the cost savings realized in the event of any investigation or query into management business practices initiated by any entity and /or governmental scrutiny.
