As with most equipment, IT hardware, such as hard disks, laptop, mobile phones and VoIP devices, will have to be decommissioned at the end of their useful lives. While it may be tempting to leave hardware lying around, this exposes them to the risk of sensitive information being lost, stolen and accessed by unauthorised persons. Without the appropriate levels of decommissioning, through methods such as permanent hard disk wiping, there is a possibility that information passes into the wrong hands in the situation that the devices are stolen or misplaced.
In order to ensure data integrity and your peace of mind, Zeumic’s recommendation is that all your devices are decommissioned in the appropriate manner. Feel free to contact us to discuss your decommissioning needs.
