The secure and ecologically responsible disposal of IT assets is referred to as e-waste management
. IT hardware (such as mobile devices, laptops, and desktop computers) has components that could be dangerous if exposed to air. As a result, it's critical to get rid of them safely. Furthermore, hardware may include sensitive data. You don't want your private information to end up in the wrong hands. To ensure that data is no longer vulnerable, companies must destroy it (a process known as data destruction or data sanitization).
