Practical Information Media Sanitization Guidelines for Higher Education
Friday, October 6, 2006
When these storage and media devices become obsolete or are no longer needed the sensitive or private data must be effectively removed from the storage media or be destroyed before the devices are recycled, reused, disposed of, or discarded. The removal process is variously called data removal, data/media sanitization, data/media destruction, or similar terms. In this document we will use media sanitization for compatibility with federal guidelines.
