While that Device is away being repaired or worse still replaced with another one.
I seem to remember not so long ago how Big it was for TR to be insisting that All Data on Nonfunctional Devices be wiped before handing them in for repair. Didn't matter that the devices themselves where nonfunctional you had to wipe them before returning them.
I can even remember cases where after the item was replaced the RE-Manufactured Device was sold to anyone willing to pay and that these had the previous owners Data on them. Great.
Now just what I want my companies Private Data passed around like a Merry Go Round on Staffs Personal Devices that fail. Where I work that's simply never going to happen but then again no HDD ever leaves this place in 1 piece and those that do leave here don't go out with any Platters, though with SSD type drives we are going to have find new ways to destroy drives when we get enough of them. At the moment however it's not an issue and personally I can not see any Staff handing over their broken personal devices to be destroyed.
But maybe I'm just wrong. [/Maniacal Laughter]
