ITS hosts Shred Fest on June 25

AUM’s Information Technology Services office will host Shred Fest in the Quad on Tues., June 25, from 10 a.m. to noon. Faculty and staff are encouraged to bring old documents for destruction. ITS will provide locked shred bins and secure storage for departments to destroy hold documents that are no longer needed.

Before permanently destroying any data, review the Records Retention and Disposal Instructions found on the AUM library website. If you have questions about what items you must keep and which you can delete, contact Samantha McNeilly at smcneill@aum.edu. Departments with more than 10 banker’s boxes of documents to destroy should contact ITS in advance.

Departments will also have the opportunity to surplus small electronics, as well as boxes of cables with ITS. A surplus crew will be on-site at Shred Fest to assist in completing the necessary forms. If you have questions, contact Tobias Mense at tmense@aum.edu or Sue McCarron at smccarron@aum.edu.
