With the ever increasing threats, identity theft and regulations, Corporate data on failed hard disks that come out of storage cabinets and servers is being more scrutinized. Degaussing and Destroying the disks are the frontrunners in this situation for us, but they introduce their own sets of obstacles. Our primary storage vendor is HP and they aren't giving us definitive answers about the data on failed hard disks nor can they guarantee that our data will be protected and destroyed before sending the disk to the next location after repair. I was just curious as to how others on the field handled this type of issue. I would expect the storage vendor to accept responsibility for destroying the information on the disks - but HP isn't giving us the necessary comfort level about the data on failed drives.
