Data breaches are increasing and the costs associated with data breach increased 13% from 2020 to 2022, according to IBM. In 2022, data breaches cost an average of $4.35 million globally ($9.9 million in the US) – but beyond the financial impact, the reputation and integrity of these organisations was jeopardised.

It is time to envision things differently. IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) is an important piece of data security risk management, which organisations often overlook. Despite the risks associated with hardware disposition, a new survey from Foundry reveals that many companies are neglecting proper security precautions. More than 40% of companies surveyed still do not yet have a formal ITAD strategy in place.

Rather than thinking about ITAD until an adverse event occurs, organisations must start recognising ITAD as a strategic practice to ensure data security, support sustainability, enable scale, and save money.

In this report, we will look at the four S’s of ITAD—Security, Sustainability, Scale, and Savings—and explore the challenges and opportunities for organisations they present.
