Hard Disk & Tape Sanitization
One of the key solutions to eliminate the risk of data falling into the wrong hands is to degauss hard drives prior to disposal. Hard drive degaussers use powerful magnets or an electromechanical 「pulse」 to erase data from hard drives. Similarly, tapes should also be properly degaussed before disposal.
In fact, DoD Requirements call for hard drives to be degaussed in an NSA listed Degausser and then physically destroyed prior to disposal.

IT Asset Disposal
Proper IT asset disposal is becoming more and more important not just on the environmental issues but also on data confidentiality.
Many organizations do not have the dedicated resources or the bulk quantity to justify the investment of procuring the equipment. They may choose to outsource such destruction and disposal. Outsourcing can be affordable and safe when done properly. If you choose this option, ask what methods will be used, where your items will be kept prior to destruction, or if there are any on-site services, what happens to destroyed waste, and what proof you will get that those items were actually destroyed.
Data security is an ongoing process, by being aware of the threats and understanding the destruction options, you will be in a much better position to protect your business and yourself. You will have complete peace of mind that you have left nothing behind.
