IT Asset Disposal (ITAD): Why it matters to all businesses

With increasing worries worldwide about the environment and safety of data, it is important for all businesses to consider how redundant IT assets are disposed of because the dangers of not having a secure IT disposal process are considerable.

The failure to dispose of any electronic device properly can result in serious environmental, reputational, and financial consequence for businesses and that is why it is so important to use a reputable IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) company such as ICT Reverse to ensure proper destruction, recycling, or reuse of your assets.

Changing working practices

The COVID-19 pandemic has made several changes to the way many businesses run now. Some businesses have sadly had to make redundancies while for many others a new focus on working from home has resulted in changes to IT requirements, with some assets becoming surplus to requirements.

By using an industry leading company like ICT Reverse, companies looking to dispose of old IT equipment can generate profit from their old equipment by disposing of them in a safe way that ensures any data stored  is wiped and therefore does not become a security risk.

All businesses need to ensure this data is kept safe across all their IT assets to avoid issues such as:

  • Unknown whereabouts of sensitive data.
  • Critical data could be recovered and used by adversaries or competitors.
  • Private or personal data about which could be used to commit fraud or identity theft.

Environmental Impact

More than ever, businesses have a duty to consider the impact their process have on the world around them. Along with this we all have a social responsibility to protect our environment and those affected by e-waste streams and ICT Reverse can help you to dispose of your devices while preventing any elements going to landfill and damaging the earth.
