The pace and demand for new electronic devices and IT assets is increasing. Studies show that most Fortune 500 companies assign, on average, 3.5 devices per employee (1). As older IT assets reach obsolescence, they continue to pile up. Organizations like yours must have a clear strategy for IT asset disposition.
Data security and data privacy regulations, along with the proper disposition of electronic waste (e-waste), are forcing you to more closely evaluate disposal and recycling processes for electronic media destruction. Without secure and environmentally friendly procedures for data destruction; destroying and recycling or repurposing electronics, your company may be at risk for data breaches, regulatory penalties, and a damaged brand reputation.
