How to Reduce E-waste with Increased Data Security

Customers and investors are prioritizing environmental sustainability. Regulators are tightening data protection requirements. So disposing of used technology presents a challenge: Can enterprises keep decommissioned devices in use—and lessen waste—without risking data exposure?

In this session, Fredrik Forslund (Blancco VP of Enterprise and Cloud Erasure Solutions) will present key findings from the brand new research study, “The Rising Tide of E-Waste”. He will show how large enterprises are handling the problem of e-waste, the IT disposal practices and policies they are implementing and how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected both.

Hear from data sanitization expert Fredrik Forslund as he addresses data security concerns and equip you with tips and advice to implement sustainable end-of-life IT practices in your own organization, such as:

  • How to put a stop to unnecessary physical destruction and promote reuse
  • How to gain data security confidence when reusing or reselling used assets
  • The importance of including proper IT asset disposal and e-waste best practices in your corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy

Walk away with sound best practices on securely decommissioning data storage devices, while minimizing harm to the environment.
