Don’t Let a Data Breach Destroy Your Summer.
Proper Electronics Recycling Could Reduce Your Cyber Risk.
Finally, you’ve escaped the office and rounded up your family for a day at the beach. Umbrellas and towels are in place, the cooler is stocked with ice-cold beverages and sunscreen has been thoroughly applied. Just as you are about to get into the next chapter of your highly anticipated summer paperback – a slew of bells and buzzes explode from your beach bag. When you reach for your phone, the screen is flooded with notifications. As you begin sorting through the onslaught of emails, texts and voicemails, you quickly become aware of the crisis: a data breach has occurred at your company.
Before You Hit the Shore, Make Sure Your Digital Assets Are Secure
Don’t let this worst-case-scenario become your reality. The average cost of a data breach in 2020 was over $3.8 million dollars, according to IBM and a report by the Ponemon Institute1. Before you pack-up the Jeep with supplies and shift into four-wheel drive, take a moment to consider if your digital assets are safe from opportunistic thieves.
Did you know that tech savvy criminals, disgruntled employees and anyone else with physical access to your old computers can retrieve the information they contain? This includes proprietary, financial, medical and other sensitive data. Throwing away your obsolete, broken or otherwise unwanted equipment in standard dumpsters and recycling bins is not enough to ward off malicious actors. Long-term storage is equally ineffective, creates clutter around your office and negatively impacts the environment.
Incorporating proper electronics recycling techniques into your organization’s overall risk management strategy is one of the best ways to prevent identity theft, financial fraud, private information leaks and other costly criminal applications of unauthorized data access.
