    Re: Data retention

    @Dos Box
    IS this something we should all be doing or is it just the Lancs LEA?

    I like others wipe the lot as soon as they have left, I wait for a month of the new term, ask head of 6th form to confirm who has left and not moved up form year 11 and.........then deleted for AD and home directories.

    Re: Data retention

    You can take personnel stuff

    but anything related to business in theory cant but on dogey ground unless you have signed an contract that forbid to say it...

    But if you were going to take something then you would have done before the company knew you were leaving

    Re: Data retention

    I think there's a potential problem with wiping data - IIRC you're in breach of the DPA if you destroy data without having a data destruction policy in place.

    We've been making this point here for quite a while...
