Second, as evidenced by our recent study mentioned earlier, NAID-Canada remains concerned about the disposal and/
or recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment, or e-waste. Any efforts to address e-waste must take privacy
protection into account. Any information on that equipment must be destroyed before it is reused, recycled or sent for
Whatever program Manitoba employs for dealing with Government e-waste, steps must be taken to ensure that devices are
wiped of personal information before sending them for reuse or recycling. That can be verified through periodic audits.
Recommendation #7: Assess any Government e-waste protocols to ensure information is properly wiped from devices
before they are sent for reuse or recycling.
