This inaugural session offers a quick primer on what data sanitization is and isn’t, the three (and only three!) ways of sanitizing data, primary data sanitization standards, and an overview of best practices for executing data sanitization effectively, efficiently, and securely.
We’ll look at how to achieve absolute, permanent, compliant, data sanitization—whether disposing of hardware or eliminating data from live environments. Are you handling PII, PHI, proprietary, or confidential information? Protecting this digital gold from hackers and thieves at end-of-life is critical.
“Drive Destruction & Sustainability: The Hidden Value of Eco-Focused Tech Disposal” shows the powerful role different methods of data sanitization can play in benefitting or detracting from your organization’s sustainability initiatives—and why that matters to business.
“Automating Data Sanitization: Increasing Compliance, Data Protection & Value with Less Effort” shows how to streamline end-of-life data processes so your IT team can accomplish more in less time, eliminate human error, and ensure compliance with the data protection regulations that affect your industry.
