Disposing of systems is a predictable occurrence. Planning ahead for integrating security steps into the replacement process helps you securely and conscientiously manage both disposal and introduction of new hardware or software.

Often, new hardware is purchased and required for immediate use. IT Administrators who are responsible for both installing new equipment and disposing of the old equipment can be caught in a time bind.

Stories of media being disposed of without properly erasing all data have appeared in the news to the great embarrassment of business and government organizations, and have made individuals unnecessarily vulnerable.

The lesson is clear: With all of the patient personal identifying information and medical information HHS collects, it is absolutely necessary to take special precautions in this area. Always take time to dispose of systems hardware and media properly!
