"Secure Deletion"

My latest column on ensuring endpoint privacy using secure deletion. Here is the excerpt.
"The Internet has empowered us to do more with our electronic devices. We do everything from our taxes to shopping and sending private messages. Our devices become a hotbed of personal data that is of interest to malicious parties. Deletion of files and caching is insufficient in preventing harvesting of your information that resides on your devices. The solution is secure deletion or wiping to overwrite those files with random data to eliminate the chances of data recovery."
