|Title:||Avoiding Accidental Data Loss|
|Published:||October 18, 2013|
|Abstract:||Does your organization have systematic procedures to remove sensitive data from obsolete equipment, or do you use a somewhat ad hoc process for the cleanup and disposal of old gear? Careless disposal of data storage hardware has led to costly and embarrassing incidents for organizations that discovered too late that their control over media sanitization was inadequate. The guidelines presented here will help organizations review their sanitization procedures and develop a more sound process if needed.|
