Are you disposing of your devices properly?

We talk about safely disposing of data on hard drives all the time. However, computers aren’t the only things with hard drives. Printers and fax machines need to be wiped clean before being disposed of.

Printers and fax machines must have their hard drives completely wiped clean before being disposed of. These machines often keep copies of the last documents they printed or faxed in their memory. If you do not wipe their memory before disposing of them, you may put sensitive or confidential data at risk. Simply deleting the hard drive is not always enough because remnants of the data may be left behind. At Kitsap Networking we have a server that is loaded with software to properly destroy data on these types of drives before they get recycled.

For any questions about data disposal please contact Kitsap Networking Services.
