As school districts across the country turn to 1:1 programs and as they update their computer labs and in classroom equipment, there’s always the question of where should the old equipment go. Many schools resort to auctioning the old equipment off. In many cases they use their IT staff to wipe hard drives, and wipe machines clean. Some skip that part all together. That can be dangerous, as school computer equipment often contains very sensitive information.
You don’t want computer equipment, hard drives, back up disks, and thumb drives with student, parent or faculty data to end up in the wrong hands. Many people don’t realize that the amazing copy machine and printers across your school’s campus often times hold digital copies of all the documents printed, within the devices own hard drive. Information from grades, to student addresses, personal information and in some cases even credit card numbers could be compromised if not disposed of correctly.
