Media Disposal Policy

An organization’s data and information possess tremendous value and must always be safeguarded.

This policy from TechRepublic Premium helps ensure an organization’s storage media are properly cleansed and sanitized prior to disposal, recycling or donation.

From the policy:

When disposing of damaged, unusable, obsolete, off-lease, decommissioned, old, or end-of-service-life equipment and media, the organization requires that the guidelines outlined herein be followed:

Hard drives, SANs and NAS devices must be sanitized using a low-level format compatible with the U.S. Department of Defense data erasure standard (DoD 5220.22-M).

The download comprises a six-page PDF and Word document.

Previously priced at $99, this is now available to download for $19. Or free with Premium annual subscription: click here to find out more.
