Protecting client security during IT Asset Disposition

As mentioned in Cascade's benchmarking reports , having a comprehensive and up-to-date IT Security Policy is an essential component in developing an effective IT Asset Management strategy. It's also critical to comply with data security regulations. Here's some additional information to help in your policy development.

What's the scope of your policy?
In our client survey, Cascade asked respondents to list what aspects of IT asset disposition their policies address. See this graphic for their responses from the 2015 survey.

How does your organization compare? It is a good idea to see if each of these issues is included in your policy - typically they are necessary and helpful to guide your program. See the graphic to the right for the complete list of what's included in other organizations' IT Security Policies.
