Data Remanence Question

Data Remanence Question

The following is my response to the post as above from Luke’s CISSP group:

According to NIST SP 800-88 R1, it depends on the data types the system was processing or the system category. If the workstation in question was categorized as High impact system, the media must be purged, while Low or Medium be cleared (erase or delete).

Since this question does not provide a specific context, the BEST way to recycle and protect sensitive data from leaking is “purge”.
