Tech Talk: In the Name of Security: Media Sanitisation, Data Protection and the Call for Greener Government
A recent survey of public sector IT leaders revealed that government organizations are spending millions of dollars each year to physically destroy solid-state drives (SSDs) in the name of data security. As global e-waste becomes a critical concern, we look at disposal options protecting data while lessening environmental impact. Join us as we share the latest research study from Blancco Technology Group, The Price of Destruction: Exploring the Financial & Environmental Costs of Public Sector Device Sanitization. The study includes Australia, France, Germany, Japan, India, Singapore, UK and US. You'll discover:
- How much the average 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.
