Companies usually look to upgrade their equipment every 3-5 years. At n2s, data destruction services can be offered across any UK location using a data equipment shredder truck (rightfully referred to as the Shredder-Saurus by the n2s team).
Stefan Jones is Secure Services Manager at n2s and heads up technology recovery and data destruction projects for the public sector.
We recently caught up with Stef to find out more about what he’s up to:
Tell us about your role at n2s
I’m the Secure Services Manager at n2s and joined the company as a field engineer in 2007, after a 20-year career as a hydrographic surveyor. Part of my role is managing technology equipment recovery and data destruction projects from initial contact through to destruction and reporting.
I’m also part of a small team responsible for gaining and maintaining our various ISO certifications (data security, health & safety, quality and environmental) and have just overseen our recent certification audit with the National Cyber Security Centre.
Can you tell us more about this National Cyber Security Centre certification?
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Commodity Assured Service Scheme for Sanitisation demonstrates compliance with the IS5 standard for organisations serving government customers.
In layman’s terms, this means we can work with Government and Military equipment containing data classified up to “Secret” level.
What is your favourite part of your role?
I love working on trickier jobs!
We sometimes face fieldwork challenges on jobs recovering equipment from old buildings with small doors, tight stairwells, no parking and restricted access times make the logistics planning interesting manoeuvring server cabinets in buildings that were never designed to hold modern technology is a challenge, but these projects are very satisfying when they go to plan!
