A systematic program to manage disposition of end-of-life IT assets is key to protecting your data, your assets, maximize value recovery and meet regulatory and corporate risk management.
IT Asset Disposal programs continue to evolve and mature as it is the upgraded version of Responsible Recycling. Regulations requiring companies to protect confidential data from customers, employees and other stakeholders continue to become more restrictive and regulated. Data security is a top priority. Companies are seeking data security and environmentally compliant companies such as Techno Rescue to manage potential risks associated with unaccountable disposal of obsolete equipment.
Company-owned IT assets containing proprietary and/or sensitive information are surprisingly not always considered a high priority and may introduce security risks when devices are replaced. As a result secure and responsible IT asset disposition (ITAD) has never been more critical.
No matter which organization you hire, it is strongly encouraged to implement a systematic process for inventory reconciliation, re-marketing, and responsible recycling of end-of-life IT assets. Benefits of a well-defined and secure ITAD program can lower logistics costs, eliminate data security risks and recover value from retired and non-working IT assets.
A vendor with a national or especially an international footprint can reduce supply chain cost including transportation logistics. With an ITAD program in place, a vendor would support scheduling, timely communications and coordinate changes, and special instructions to facilitate the safe and secure removal and destruction of obsolete equipment. The reduced handling will result in lowered logistics costs and carbon footprint. Limiting the frequency that IT assets are transported will minimize the potential for data security breaches.
A vital priority for Nidal Allis, the CEO of Techno Rescue, is Data Security. Through access-controlled processing facilities, IT assets are protected prior to destruction. Businesses and organizations have multiple destruction options that guarantee company privacy and corporate reputation will not be compromised. Whether data security is via bulk data destruction, hard drive shredding or witnessed destruction, a certificate of data destruction can be provided for validation.
Depending on your business goals, some of your IT assets which will arrive our facilities will be assessed for resale value. The IT asset’s age, functionality and overall condition are all factors. Techno Rescue utilizes multiple factors to track resell value and have extensive relationships with wholesale and retail resellers, both of which are important in maximizing the real value of electronic asset recovery. Techno Rescue excels in finding hidden revenue from obsolete electronic equipment.
Techno Rescue offers Secure ITAD services for our clients to sustain the value of IT and electronic equipment in a legally compliant, data secure, fully traceable and environmentally sustainable manner.
