Their exhibition stand will be showcasing

Garner are the industry leader in data elimination products. They design, manufacture, and sell equipment that delivers complete, permanent, and verifiable data elimination.  Their products ensure your data is unrecoverable.  They serve both government and business customers from every industry sector in countries around the world, providing time-tested solutions for permanent data security of various media types.

NHS facilities go to great lengths to protect their data from network intrusions, hacking, viruses, and theft. However, many fail to protect against the disastrous consequences of data security breaches from stored, stockpiled, donated, resold, discarded, and recycled magnetic and solid-state media that they thought was deleted or erased.

The NHS has been fined a number of times by data regulators over the loss of sensitive information. Regulators said the NHS failed to check that a data destruction company had properly disposed of the records.  The maximum fine that the Information Commissioner's office can impose for Data Protection Act breaches is currently £500,000.

Attendees of HIMSS UK e-Health Week can also hear our AGX / Garner presentation on the unplugged stage May 3 at 10.20 .  We will be discussing  “The  Consequences Of  Data Security Breaches And Garner Erasure Solutions.”
