Equipment disposal and GDPR fine risk.

16 Mar , 2019 Privacy items,Technology news

Findings suggest nearly half of businesses do not wipe data from redundant equipment before disposal and nearly three quarters of UK businesses do not have a procedure or process in place for disposing of old IT equipment.

Businesses have a responsibility to protect sensitive data. Under GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act if a company fails to protect personal data or infringes an individual’s privacy rights that company can be fined up to 20m Euros or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is greater.
