~3-page information security policy template on the disposal of information.
Redundant information must be disposed of in a manner that addresses the possibility of subsequent inappropriate access. For sensitive content (including personal data and proprietary information), this is achieved by secure deletion (making the information content unintelligible and/or irretrievable) and/or physical destruction of the media on which it is stored e.g. computer disks, USB memory sticks and papers.
This policy complements the policy on information retention.
