Speaker: Claire Christison from Renovo Data Services

Meeting Topic: Environmental responsibility of recycling business electronics and the data security element associated. A lot of money/time is spent on firewalls, anti-virus i.e. protection of the in-use systems, yet, in many cases when an item or items are no longer of use or wanted… the ‘security’ typically stops and that should not be the case. There are some very cost-effective solutions that not only mitigate your risk but help protect your business and the data of your clients. You will leave this presentation with a better understanding of environmentally responsible and risk mitigating IT Asset Disposition and a reliable, local source for an integral part of the IT Asset Management Cycle.
