When removing a computer from service, the current procedure is to use a software tool to wipe the drive to ensure any data that was present on the computer hard drive is not at risk of disclosure. Review the media sanitization procedure.
If hard drives or tapes need to be physically destroyed, Information Security can perform a certified destruction. Hard drive destruction incurs a per-device charge. Contact the Help Desk at 216.368.HELP (4357) and request a drive destruct from Information Security.
For bulk disposal, the university has contracted with CINTAS.
