Disposing of confidential data is not an easy task

At some point in time in your career, you will be obliged to destroy confidential data that is in your possession. I am not talking about pulling an Enron either. If you work for a government lab or even a private sector lab, you know how much data your lab produces by the minute. The sheer amount of data can be overwhelming. Your organization may be performing work for another organization where you have a confidentiality agreement in place and when you complete your work for that other organization, you will be responsible for completely destroying that data after you have released it to your client.
