Next week's BOFH...
"...for the umpteenth time the concern is that personal data is destroyed in line with ISO 27001: 2005. We accept, albeit reluctantly, that you have the data and will run stories based on it. Even you realise that there's some things that shouldn't be broadcast or you wouldn't redact them."
"So you're not going to arrest me?"
"No", Agent Smith sighed "we're not going to arrest you. We just want to make sure that equipment you no longer need is disposed of securely".
...20 minutes and 3 wrong turns later...
The big boss was clearly confused, as he struggled to remember my name. "This is er....our...er..."
"Hello Dave, what brings you down here?"
"Security audit basically. We need to make sure you don't leak the data that was leaked to you. If I could take a copy of the secure destruction certificates I'll be on my way."
"No can do...we do it in-house I'm afraid. Stephen can show you if you like?" I say as I pick up the Head Beancounter's Macbook
...Five minutes of the PFY with a sledge hammer later...
"I think I can safely say that's securely destroyed" said Dave as he brushed plastic fragments from his suit.
"So everything's OK" said the Big Boss
"Yes, we can call off the black helicopters. Thanks Simon - pint later?"
