View Control Practices  help

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Clearly define responsibility for the development and communication of policies on disposal.
  2. Sanitise equipment and media containing sensitive information prior to reuse or disposal. Such processes should ensure that data marked as ‘deleted’ or ‘to be disposed’ cannot be retrieved (e.g., media containing highly sensitive data should be physically destroyed).
  3. To maintain an audit trail, log the disposal of equipment or media containing sensitive information.
  4. Define a procedure to remove active media from the media inventory list upon disposal.
  5. Transport unsanitised equipment and media in a secure way throughout the disposal process.
  6. Require disposal contractors to have the necessary physical security and procedures to store and handle the equipment and media before and during disposal.
