Data security is our #1 priority.

Data At Rest = Data At Risk!

The current global data security threat level is high, in part due to these frightening statistics for internal mishandling and theft.

  • Amount stolen annually from U.S. businesses by employees = $50B.
  • 75% of employees have stolen at least once from their employer.
  • 33% of all business bankruptcies are caused by employee theft.

The threat of a data security breach is real – and translates negatively to consumer confidence, your brand and your enterprise

  •  The potential cost of breaches for the healthcare industry could be as much as $5.6 billion annually.
  • The healthcare industry accounted for 42% of major data breaches reported in 2014.
  • Consumers tell us they will leave your company/brand.
  • 12% of retail customers said they would stop shopping at the affected retailer.
  • 79% of those who stay would never again use credit or debit cards to make purchases there.
  • 50% said that if their personal information were compromised in a data breach, there is nothing a breached company could do to win back their confidence.

However, consumers will re-gain your trust if you invest in an asset security solution.

  • 22% of respondents said that as long as the retailer resolved the security issue that caused the breach, they would be comfortable returning there to shop.
  • 33% said that if a company increased its cyber security spending, their confidence in the company would also improve.
  • 45% said they continued to do business with the breached company because they felt it had resolved the data breach to their satisfaction.

Features & Benefits

Tear-A-Byte® is TechR2’s comprehensive Track-Contain-Destroy patented process developed to fully protect its business partners from data breaches resulting from mismanaged loose data-bearing devices. It begins with the implementation of intricate RFID technologies, tagging each device for communication with TechR2’s proprietary software.

The Tear-A-Byte appliance receives and contains each tagged device. No device (or data contained on the device) can leave the enterprise facility without a real-time, immediate alert. TechR2’s engineers not only audit and fully assess any risk, but double verify the reconciliation process to ensure nothing falls through the cracks. Once filled to capacity, TechR2 dispatches engineers to reconcile all of the devices with the data contained on each, then completely and irretrievably destroys them through the use of NSA certified degaussers.

Clients can then track, report and manage their processed device inventory via the TechR2 client-access web portal.

How can we help your enterprise achieve GDPR Compliance?

Is your organization ready for the GDPR?

After four years of debate, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was ratified by the European Union during April 2016 and has now become law, although member states have a two year period to implement into national law. This means that companies will be expected to be fully compliant by May 25th 2018.

Individuals are increasingly data-savvy and;

  • Understand how brands use their data for sales and marketing purposes
  • Are aware of their rights with regard to their personal data
  • Are concerned about the well-publicized threat of cyber data theft

Companies will be required to “implement appropriate technical and organizational measures” in relation to the nature, scope, context and purposes of their handling and processing of personal data.

In the event of a personal data breach, companies must notify the appropriate supervisory authority “without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it” if the breach is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”.
