DoD activities must be alert to conditions where a person’s privacy is compromised by disposal of property containing Privacy Act materials.

Blackberries, copiers, hard drives, laptops that may create, process, store or transmit personally identifiable information (PII) must be sanitized to make the recovery of PII impossible.

In such cases, the appropriate IT personnel, privacy official, and general counsel should be consulted, prior to disposal
