KSC Policy: Disposal and/or Disposition of KSC Technology Assets
Policy Approved: 2005
Technology assets which may have personal and institutional sensitive data on them are not available for selling, donating and/or destroying by recycling. Due to institutional risk, KSC requires total destruction of data on the technology assets and transfers ownership and liability to federally approved recyclers of such equipment. KSC contracts with a recycling firm which provides us with a US Department of Defense standard for erasing data and removal of the equipment. For the purpose of this policy, KSC technology assets covered under this policy include; workstations, printers, routers, servers, switches, firewalls or other simple network devices.
