RetirePC is a certified Electronic Recycling and Data Destruction company offering IT Asset Disposal for the Dallas, Ft. Worth, Plano and surrounding DFW, Texas cities.
“IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) is a means for the proper disposition, removal and recycling or remarketing of assets. This is is accomplished while ensuring compliance to local and national data security and environmental regulations.”
What is ITAD?
ITAD, or IT asset disposition, is the secure, regulatory-compliant processing of retired electronic business equipment (computers, servers, storage devices, digital printers, video displays, handheld devices, etc.). Core ITAD processes include data erasure and value recovery or recycling. These processes are often undertaken by IT staff, or by various types of third-party IT service providers, some of which specialize in ITAD.
Typical ITAD customers are businesses, organizations, and institutions that are subject to regulatory compliance, require secure handling of sensitive information and desire financial recovery of the value of used assets. Larger corporations typically require a centralized approach to managing the process across broad geographic and organizational divides, oftentimes involving highly transparent compliance reporting and financial analytics.
The top echelon of third-party ITAD service providers ensure that all data stored on equipment is destroyed while protecting maximum asset resale values where possible. Recycling methods (for unmarketable IT assets) must comply with all applicable laws and regulations and should reduce negative environmental impact.
Why is it critical?
Because any organization’s most valuable asset is its reputation.
- Improperly retired electronic business tools are easily traced or exploited, and can lead to incidents that might be embarrassing or compromising to the company, as well as legal proceedings.
- The unintended disclosure of private customer data or business information can erode public trust in any company.
- Even data-free equipment can harm a company’s reputation if it harms the environment.
- Decentralized or improvised asset retirement methods will not mitigate these risks
