When dealing with obsolete electronics, it is essential to take data security and the environment into consideration. If end-of-life IT devices are not securely and sustainably dealt with, they pose significant financial, legal, and reputational risks. 

Data on your end-of-life devices is just as valuable as it is on your online devices; therefore, it must be securely handled and destructed. If not properly dealt with, the personal information left behind on end-of-life devices could fall into the wrong hands and quickly become exploited. 

Electronic waste is the world’s fastest-growing domestic waste stream. If not securely destructed, e-waste will end up in a landfill where its hazardous toxins will seep into soil and groundwater - causing harm to the Earth and its inhabitants. 

To help build awareness on these concerns, we took part in a discussion panel sponsored by SIM Metro NY with e-Stewards and i-SIGMA, two industry leaders that are responsible for certifying e-waste companies that follow the most stringent standards.
