What steps need to be taken before surplusing items with digital storage?

Before attempting to surplus or dispose of any device or equipment containing sensitive data or software licensed to the university, security-compliance regulations require that you follow relevant procedures to fully erase or destroy all storage devices.

For instructions for how to remove data from storage devices (removable media, portable electronic devices,  scanners, copiers), please visit OIT’s Secure Data Removal page.
