You can use a hammer, soak your computer in water (or gasoline), etc.
But deleting data often leaves the data intact, meaning your buyer on eBay, or your local dumpster diver now has your data.
Especially now in a work-from-home world, employees are dealing with high quantities of sensitive data sent to their personal devices for temporary use…
Of course, they are instructed to delete after use…or securely store.
Unfortunately, most do not know how to do this.

Educate now – prevent disaster down the road.
