[On-Demand Webinar] In the Name of Security: Media Sanitization, Data Protection and the Call for Greener Government

Webinar Overview

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. With global electronic waste (e-waste) becoming a critical concern, it’s time to look at disposal options that fiercely protect data while lessening environmental impact.

Join us as government IT decision makers and industry tech leaders unpack results from the latest research study from Blancco Technology Group, The Price of Destruction: Exploring the Financial & Environmental Costs of Public Sector Device Sanitization.

You’ll discover:

  • How much the average U.S. 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 they raise
  • The three factors calling for a change in IT asset sanitization practices (digital transformation is one)

Public sector organizations remain under the spotlight when it comes to spending. With data security threats and e-waste on the rise, we’ll look at how IT leaders can exercise fiscal responsibility and support sustainability while never compromising data protection.
