  8. When utilizing Swif for computer wiping, it's possible to download Media Disposal evidence. This evidence can then be conveniently uploaded to Drata for record-keeping and auditing purposes. It provides a clear and auditable trail of device disposal, which is crucial for data privacy and security.

    * If you receive password manager alerts on Vanta, it was decided based on the installed application and browser extension data. Password managers are a good security practice to ensure that passwords aren’t stored on their laptops in plaintext, that each website has a different password, etc. Here is the list of apps and extensions Vanta considers a password manager. We don't report installed browser extensions at the moment.
