Privacy laws, regulations, and policies mandate that personally identifiable information (PII) must be protected, and unauthorized access to this information must be reported. PII is any information about an individual maintained by an organization that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual‘s identity or can be linked or linkable to an individual.
While not necessarily mandated by privacy laws, regulations, and policies, the unauthorized access of company confidential and proprietary information can potentially be even more damaging.
Revert’s On-site Data Sanitization and Enterprise IT Asset Disposition Services are specifically designed to ensure compliance with data privacy laws, regulations, and policies that require data storage be sanitized to prevent unauthorized access to NPI, PII, and PHI during the data and/or IT asset retirement stages.
Electronic Waste Management
Worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.5 trillion in 2017, a 2.4 percent increase from 2016, according to Gartner, Inc. Hardware becomes obsolete or unwanted, often within 1- 3 years of purchase. The amount of global e-waste is expected to grow by 8 percent per year, but unfortunately, only 15-20 percent of all e-waste is recycled.
Revert’s On-site Enterprise IT Asset Disposition Service ensures compliance with local, state, and federal legislations and industry regulations for electronic waste disposal and responsible recycling.
Unlike electronic waste, energy efficiency is more difficult to quantify. A typical desktop computer uses 868 kW of electricity per year, and many companies have thousands of computers. If we calculate the carbon emissions from 20,000 computers using 868kW of electricity each year, it equals 12,467 metric tons of CO2. The Foundation for IT Sustainability estimates that this much CO2 is equivalent to the:
- Annual greenhouse gas emissions from 2,384 passenger vehicles; or
- CO2 emissions from 28,994 barrels of oil consumed; or
- CO2 emissions from the electricity use of 1,619 homes for one year.
Revert’s On-site Enterprise IT Asset Disposition Service helps reduce carbon footprint and ensures compliance with local, state, and federal legislations and industry regulations for electronic waste disposal and recycling.
