While information technology (IT) risks continue to evolve, security professionals are constantly challenged to stay up to date with the latest methods of protection. Unfortunately for working equipment, methods of data protection may only temporarily meet your business needs. As IT executives keep busy staying connected and educated, it can be a relief to know there are ways to guarantee data protection when it comes to retired IT assets.
In the spirit of Earth Day, April 22, Sims is offering two ways for an IT professional to learn more about secure and responsible management of their end-of-life IT assets.
