A recent survey of IT officials by government officials revealed that government agencies spend millions of dollars annually on physically destroying solid-state drives (SSDs) in the name of data storage. With global waste (e-waste) becoming a major factor, it’s time to look at waste disposal capabilities that significantly protect data while minimizing environmental impact.
Join us as state IT decision-makers and industry technology leaders to release the results of research findings by Blancco Technology Group, Rector of Destruction: Assessment and Environmental Impact Public Sector Device Sanitization.
- How much the average U.S. public sector organization spends destroying and replacing perfectly functional data storage media
- The impact of premature SSD destruction due to policy requirements, security concerns, and convenience
- The role non-destructive data sanitization plays when dealing with classified and non-classified public sector data
- The various disposal methods used at asset end-of-life—and the risks they raise
- The three factors calling for a change in IT asset sanitization practices (digital transformation is one)
Public sector organizations remain under the spotlight when it comes to spending. With data security threats and e-waste on the rise, we’ll look at how IT leaders can exercise fiscal responsibility and support sustainability while never compromising data protection.
