HIPAA Security Reminder of the Week

Electronic Media Disposal

We all need to ensure that we are careful when transporting or disposing of any type of electronic device. Consider what information might be stored on that media.

Know your company’s policy for electronic media disposal.  For example: all workforce members should direct the disposal of all electronic waste to IT or the Help Desk. Someone will pick up the equipment.

Make sure you sign off when the device is picked up – and don’t forget that Certificate of Destruction if you are using a third-party shredding company.
