22 Dec Stanford Community to Purge Unneeded Computer Files for Privacy Purposes
Stanford’s University Privacy and Information Security offices recently made a recommendation urging the university community to periodically review and purge unneeded files from their computers.
Assistant vice president and chief information security officer Michael Duff said that data leaks and breaches in the university often involve a victim who is unaware that he or she had stored sensitive data on the computer.
Duff recommended that a day be set aside for file cleanup, and that Stanford data be removed from personal storage accounts.
