Today IT Asset Disposition is more than a waste product for an organization. Numerous options for disposal are available to the enterprise. Savings opportunities from equipment reuse, software redeployment and resale provide savings opportunities and possibly pay for or afford a positive cash flow for the ITAD process. Along with opportunities and savings are risks associated with mishandled, lost or stolen assets caused by improper oversight. At any step during the ITAD process, errors can and do occur and organizations can be subject to fines, penalties and public disgrace.
2018 was a landmark year for regulators and businesses alike following the introduction of GDPR. There was a move from businesses to step up when it came to protecting personal data and respecting the individual’s rights over their own information, or information about them.
80 percent of IT and data experts polled at the event noted they were less than fully confident in their business’ current level of compliance with data protection regulations like GDPR, yet 37 percent still thought more regulation was required. This echoes a changing consumer view: that data privacy is an individual human right, and one not to be superseded by commercial interest.
