Certified ITAD Services
Certified to the highest level
Asset Lifecycle Solutions has passed the ADISA Standard 8.0 certification process with distinction to Data Impact Assurance Level 3. We hope this goes some way to show how seriously we take data security and we’d like to explain to you further exactly what this means for you.
Who is ADISA?
Firstly, who is ADISA? ADISA are the ICO approved GDPR certification scheme that governs the IT disposal industry. ADISA is mapped to law which is evidence of GDPR compliance. With over 200 assessment criteria, you can be assured that your IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) supplier has gone through a rigourous process. The process is also accredited by UKAS which is further evidence of it’s assurance.
What does DIAL 3 mean?
As an ADISA certified ITAD, ALS are certified to ADISA Data Impact Assurance Level (DIAL) 3. But what does that mean?
ADISA and the ICO worked together to develop a data security process based on key factors to help manage the risk around your data.
By following the link below and completing a simple questionnaire, you (the data controller) can determine what level of service you require, Dial 1, 2 or 3. Level 3 being the highest level of Risk.
After completing the questionnaire, you should only use an ITAD that meets, or exceeds, your DIAL level. By choosing ALS and our DIAL 3 accreditation there is never any question about if we can handle your requirements. You’re always in the best hands.
How It Works?
1. What is the level of threat to your business?
2. What is the level of risk that you are willing to accept, or attitude to risk?
3. What is the volume and type of data that you handle?
4. What would be the impact to your business if you were to have a breach?
Depending on the answers to those questions, your organisation would fall into either DIAL 1, DIAL 2 or DIAL 3, DIAL 3 being the highest of those levels. Since we are certified to DIAL 3, that means that ALS can handle disposal at that and all levels below it.
A huge milestone for ALS
