media wiping

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
What kind of hardware would fall in the remit of a sanitization of corporate media policy?

Can you provide some examples, above / beyond hard drives out of workstations that are faulty or reached the end of their lifecycle.

Also (I am using NIST terminology on sanitisation) what is the difference between data wiping and media wiping?

I have also seen the term liscence sanitiaztion - what on earth is that?
