Policy for Data Destruction

It is the policy of CSUB Information Technology Services to remove and/or destroy all institutional data from any computer storage device prior to redeployment or equipment survey.

The primary reason for this is a concern for confidential, high risk data and software programs that may be on the computers. All computers released by campus departments must pass through an ITS standard disk wiping process before they can be redeployed, sold, donated or disposed of via the survey process.
