Article New DIN 66399 Shredder Security Levels

Top-Level security in shredding all types of different data carriers The new DIN 65399 replaces DIN 32757 and for the first time divides data destruction into three protection classes, six material classifications and seven security levels. 3 Protection Classes

For the first time, DIN 66399 defines different material classifications that indicate the type of data carrier you are destroying. 7 Security Levels Instead of the previous 5, the new DIN 66399 now defines 7 security levels for each material classification. As hitherto, the higher the security level, the smaller the particle size the data carriers will be shredded into.
