    Here are five key points on how to dispose of sensitive data securely for an individual:

    Use Data Wiping Software: Employ tools like Eraser or CCleaner to overwrite files multiple times, ensuring they cannot be recovered.

    Physically Destroy Devices: For old hard drives and storage media, physically destroy them using methods like shredding or hammering.

    Encrypt Before Disposal: Encrypt data on issued/commercial devices before disposing of them to add an extra layer of security.

    Shred Paper Documents: Use a cross-cut shredder to destroy sensitive paper documents, making reconstruction impossible.

    Factory Reset Mobile Devices: Perform a factory reset on smartphones and tablets, and ensure data is encrypted beforehand for added security.
