IT Asset Disposition in the New Millennium

Sean Magann, Vice President of Sims Recycling Solutions, to Present on Modern IT Asset Disposition

WEST CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 05, 2014) - Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, has announced Sean Magann, vice president of Sims Recycling Solutions will present "IT asset disposition in the new millennium" at the Gartner IT Financial, Procurement and Asset Management Summit in Florida. The presentation will be held on September 9, 2014 from 3:45 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern time in the Osceola A room.

Today's world which is "always Internet connected" creates unique 24/7 data security challenges for companies operating in local, national and global environments. While IT asset managers are well equipped to establish protocols for prevention of data infiltration on active networks, less stringent attention is paid to the potential data security risks posed by final disposition of retired assets. These challenges are most prevalent for those managing data center IT assets due to the volume of data stored.

"This presentation will provide a greater understanding of the importance of having defined processes in place for IT asset disposition to ensure data security and adherence to corporate compliance requirements," stated Sean Magann, Vice President of Sims Recycling Solutions. "Each attendee will receive a free tip sheet for fine tuning an IT asset disposition program and will be eligible for a free site audit to assess their current program."

The presentation will be made available on the Sims Recycling Solutions Slideshare account following the conference. Sims Recycling Solutions will also be exhibiting at booth #305.

The Gartner IT Financial, Procurement and Asset Management Summit runs from September 8-9, 2014 and focuses on IT asset management issues and trends for IT finance, procurement, vendor and asset management professionals.
