Security Tips when Disposing of Old Equipment

When it is time to dispose of your old equipment it is important that you delete all of your sensitive information in a timely manner.  This is a precautionary measure you can take in order to protect your data in case someone were to access it without your knowledge.

According to Tech Republic, “Don’t store equipment in need of secure decommissioning. Make it a priority to get it done, so the equipment doesn’t end up being neglected for weeks, months, or years, until someone gets an opportunity to compromise your security by making use of sensitive data stored on it.”
