IT Asset Disposal and Data Destruction

With the average cost of a single data breach in 2015 reaching £2,37,000 in the UK and New GDPR legislation set to push the cost of fines alone to up to €20,000,000 never has it been more important to select your disposal partner carefully.

  • Organisations in most cases do not realize that when you engage the services of an IT Asset Disposal Partner they are acting as your “Data Processor”
  • When an IT Asset Disposal Partner collects redundant IT equipment from a client in most cases this equipment will hold personal data.
  • There are very specific rules in both the DPA1998 and GDPR that must be adhered to otherwise the organization will be in breach of this legislation.
  • Ecosystems services are designed to make sure that your IT equipment disposal is completed in line with current and incoming legislation.
