As of the June 2007 edition of the DSS C&SM, overwriting is no longer acceptable for sanitization of magnetic media; only degaussing or physical destruction is acceptable.
So it means the standard now is trash the drive and melt the remains into a sticky blob. Or alternatively you sit it on a desk and place a heap of Neodymium magnets above it. And screw the data on the drive that way.
