Franklin College OIT Media Sanitization Policy Objective and Introduction

Summary: Franklin College OIT Media Sanitization Policy
Objective and Introduction
Franklin College Office of Information Technology (OIT) developed media
sanitization policy and procedures to comply with federal legislation and protect
intellectual property and the privacy of our faculty, staff and students. This document
establishes Franklin College policy for the sanitization of magnetic and optical storage
media prior to being transferred to surplus or to another department; in some cases,
proper destruction of media may be the best means of sanitization. The methods and
procedures have been tested and verified to work within acceptable tolerances for the
removal or destruction of sensitive data. The methods also adhere to FERPA and HIPAA
guidelines for maintaining sensitive data integrity and security through the proper
removal or disposal of such information.
Policy Abstract
All Franklin College units will perform due diligence to maintain the integrity and
security of all student and private data while it is in use. In order to maintain this level of
data security, any storage media scheduled to be transferred to surplus or another
department, should be appropriately sanitized according to our procedures or equivalent
procedures. The sanitization process is outlined in the Franklin OIT Media Sanitization
Procedures document.
