I have had a question posted to me, more opinion based, rather than
technical, but I would like to hear any views of your thoughts please.
The DoD hard drive wipe seems to be okay (not perfect I know.) for
removing sensitive data from a hard drive, but do you think it is
acceptable for an SSD or other Flash based storage?
If a DoD wipe is not good, what are your thoughts on something that is,
or would work?
Thank you,
