Just wondering what the group feels is an adequate level of destruction
for a hard drive that contains personal financial information . . .
A. Using software to wipe the drive to DOD 5200.28 spec.
B. Cutting the platters in half (great big saw that essentially chops
the drive into two pieces).
C. Drilling out the center of the platter with a 2" drill bit.
D. Hard drive degausser.
E. Other - please specify.
