Highlights from the study:
- It’s easy to confuse deleting and erasing files. Over half (51 percent) of the respondents believe files are permanently gone when they empty the Recycle Bin. Another 51 percent believe performing a quick format and/or full reformat of a computer’s entire drive is sufficient to remove data forever.
- Storage and handling of IT equipment are more important than you think. 33 percent of IT professionals store non-functional desktop/laptop computers, external drives and servers in easily accessible, unsecured locations.
- Data retention policies need better oversight and enforcement. 30 percent of organizations don’t have written data retention or removal policies in place.
