IT and data are powerful tools, but they are also susceptible to weakness if robust and ongoing processes are not in place to protect them.
Cybercrime is becoming more and more common in our society and consequently data laws are becoming stricter. Any organisation holding data of value has a duty to protect it which extends beyond where you might think.
What’s ITAD Security?
It focuses on ensuring that data disappears well and truly once it is no longer needed. The right processes are essential for ITAD providers and clients to thoroughly erase data from old and unwanted equipment. Furthermore, when you correctly remove data, you can retrieve funds for redundant equipment.
What are my responsibilities?
The answer to this depends on the type of data you hold and your position within an organisation. When you are responsible for data, it’s up to you to make sure data is not misused and is handled responsibly in line with data management standards. The detail of these will depend on the type of data involved. That is where ITADwise will develop an ongoing strategy, finding the processes and partners that will ensure you meet your obligations.
Firstly, it’s crucial to understand the level of security needed; underestimate it and you will be exposed to risk, whereas if you overestimate it, you’ll be creating a lot of extra unnecessary processes and costs. ITADwise will make a precise assessment first, then work alongside you to develop an ongoing plan.
We will work with you and your current ITAD provider if needed in order to manage your data properly, long after it’s left your immediate care.
Request a meeting and we will explore how to protect you and your organisation.
