2.3.3. Decommission

Once a host has reached the end of its life, it is time to decommission it. This section of the standard mostly focuses on tracking old hardware until it can be recycled or disposed of. It also has steps to ensure whatever data was on the host is cleanly wiped so anyone who happens upon the old hardware will get to the data. Additional steps for backups and verification help ensure old hosts are no longer being used.
