Disposing of Systems, Portable Storage, and Media
Whenever a system, storage device, or storage procedure is disposed of, assigned to another client, or repurposed, it must be cleaned to eliminate Harvard confidential information (HCI) data.
To remove data securely from your laptop or desktop use one of the following applications, depending on your system:
PCs - Use PGP Shredder
Macs - Use PGP Shredder or SecureErase
Note: Deleting your files and or reformatting the hard drive will not be sufficient for this process.
To either erase the data on your system or to determine how to destroy the hard disk and recycle a laptop, please contact us.
