CIS Releases Newsletter on Cleaning Up Data and Devices

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) July Newsletter reminds users to properly dispose of old or unused data and devices. Without careful management of online accounts, cloud storage, physical storage, and electronic devices, users could inadvertently disclose sensitive information that can be exploited by cyber criminals. CIS is home to the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), a Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) partner focused on cyber threat prevention, protection, response, and recovery for U.S. state, local, tribal, and territorial government entities.

CISA encourages users and administrators to review the CIS Newsletter on Cleaning Out Your Old Data and Devices and the CISA Tip on Proper Disposal of Electronic Devices for more information.
