5 Signs you Need Help with IT Asset Disposition
IT assets will have to be disposed of at some point, and this last step of your ITAM strategy calls for handling with absolute care. As you probably know by now, too many companies have been caught out at sea, exposing themselves to expensive data breaches, legal penalties, and a negative public image. In fact, a good number of companies admit to losing track of their assets during the disposition process. This is clearly something that doesn’t augur well at all for safe IT asset disposition, or the destruction of any confidential, proprietary, or personal data. Some key questions you should ask yourself:
- Is your IT team equipped to appropriately undertake asset disposition for your retired assets?
- Are you up to scratch with the nuts and bolts of the regulations that govern environmental and electronically stored data?
- Do you know (with unfailing certainty) where every piece of end-of-life equipment is located?
- Are you conversant with the disposition channel that guarantees the highest ROI for each of your products?
