According to Risk Based Security and Flashpoint, “there were 2,932 publicly reported data breaches in the United States throughout 2021. The research also found “that although data breaches worldwide decreased by 5%, numbers in the U.S. lifted by 10% compared to 2020 levels,” (Security Magazine, 2021).
Data security should be a top priority for organizations for the disposition of their IT assets. Choosing a certified ITAD vendor to securely destroy or sanitize storage media in your obsolete devices is important for protecting your sensitive organizational and client information. Never cut costs by not choosing a certified vendor to destroy your data—as this puts your organization at high risk for data breaches.
Be sure to check if your ITAD vendor is NAID AAA-certified and so that your ITAD process is in compliance with regulatory standards such as HIPPA/HITECH, PCI, SOX, FACTA, GLB, and FERPA—as there are numerous regulations involved. With a certified ITAD vendor, you can be sure that it meets the highest standards for data erasure and destruction and the entire disposition process.
