Alert Online 2017 - Clean up your attick

29 sept 2017

Throwing away old data carriers can be a risky business. Deleted files are not always removed properly from such devices and can be easily recovered in such cases. Formatting a harddisk doesn't bring protection, files can still be recovered but it takes more effort.

The Alert Online weeks try to raise more awareness and promotion of a more secure way of working. LIS (Tilburg University CERT) is using this years Alert Online weeks to organise a day in which our employees and students can bring in their old data carriers (e.g. harddisks, USB sticks, memory cards) to us and we'll take care of proper destruction.

Wednesday october 4th 2017 between 12:00 and 14:00 you can deliver your data carriers to us in the G-building.

Everything collected by us will be brought to the company Solid Circle and everything will be destroyed properly.

Please only bring the data carrier itself and not the entire computer, we do not collect those. We reserve the right to refuse offered materials if they do not fit the purpose of this action.
