Intellectual property (IP) are intangible assets for any business. Security threats are constantly on the rise, and with the vast quantity of confidential information stolen, it is challenging to protect intellectual propriety. Counterfeit products are not only infringing intellectual proprietary rights which could deprive the value and brand name of the company, but also introduce substandard, unsafe defects into a customer’s product thereby putting consumers at risk.
Simply dumping into landfills is not only environmentally irresponsible, it also provides inadequate protection as the discarded products may end up being reused or remarketed after entering the grey market. At SAMS, intellectual property protection is of utmost importance, and all our processes are geared to ensure that confidential client information does not fall into the wrong hands.
Data may contain propriety information crucial to business or may relate directly to members of the public. Data breach is a serious issue, which is why it is essential to understand the risk of insufficient intellectual property protection.
It is a common belief that once a file is deleted, it’s gone for good but that’s not always the case. In fact, the data from deleted files still stays in the computer and is very easy to recover deleted data.
Failure to thoroughly destroy data from storage media may inadvertently result in the data entering the public domain, an event that could have serious ramification for any company. A data breach may lead to adverse media coverage, brand damage, loss of revenue, regulatory fines, and unforeseen internal running costs.
An increasing number of government regulations and industry standards demand that companies sanitize storage media before disposal or reuse.
As such, SAMS meets the need for intellectual property protection of proprietary and data bearing equipment to put our customer’s minds at ease.
