Properly Dispose of Electronic Media

During National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the FBI joins in asking every user of a connected device to Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.  Diamond Business Communication supports this cause and will be posting 31 Days of Cybersecurity Tips.

Tip #3 Properly Dispose of Electronic Media! Computers, smartphones, and cameras allow you to keep a great deal of information at your fingertips, but when you dispose of, donate, or recycle a device you may inadvertently disclose sensitive information which could be exploited by cyber criminals. Physical destruction of a device is the ultimate way to prevent others from retrieving your information. However there are specialized services available that will wipe, disintegrate, burn, melt, or pulverize your computer drive and other devices.
