When businesses update their technology, one of the biggest risks to their organisation may be one they've never considered.
Old technology retains information, often confidential or sensitive data, which could be dangerous when it falls into the wrong hands.
However, it's not just hard drives that retain this data; mobile phones, IP phones and even printers can store information that can be recovered.
Ensuring these devices are wiped prior to disposal is vital and can prevent fines and potential security breaches.
Businesses need to have a data deletion policy to make sure no devices slip through the net when replacing their old technology.
This is even more important as firms ramp up their cloud computing and IT budgets to take advantage of the current improvements in technology.
Bring You Own Device schemes can also pose a problem, with a requirement to wipe corporate data from a former employee's personal device.
