Institutions need to also take control of data security on their IT assets. Significant investments are typically made to protect data storage devices while on the network, using malware protection programs and firewalls. But as soon as assets are removed from this secure environment and left loose in hallways and storerooms, data theft is more likely.
Over the years, Cascade has conducted research and put together tools to help institutions manage their data security through disposition. Please use these tools to assist your own firm and let us know if we can provide more assistance.
