Every once in a while, I like to revisit the media sanitation guidelines. I always feel this is taken for granted. Sort of like an “outta site, outta mind” kind of thing. I want to make sure practices that donate their old PC’s to charity, or to electronic recycling, are not properly disposing of ePHI. There are rules and requirements, as well as best practices for media sanitation guidelines. In this article, I have attached the NIST guidelines for media sanitation.
