When one hears about Ewaste recycling, one thinks of electronic products nearing the end of their useful life like computers, televisions, laptops, mobile phones and ways in which some of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled, thereby working towards protecting the environment. Sadly, electronic discards are one of the fastest growing segments of the waste stream in most countries and studies estimate that nearly 75 percent of old electronics are being stored, due to an uncertainty about managing how the materials are disposed. The increasing advances in technology only result in new products flooding the market.
Confidential personal information can be accessed in a few clicks of a mouse or some tapping and swiping finger movements in this digitally advanced world. With the increased reliance on personal technology-laptops, smart phones, PDAs, computer monitors and printers accessing sensitive personal information, be it online banking and shopping or sharing “likes” on social media has never been easier, resulting in vast storehouses of confidential data in electronic gadgets. Ever wondered what happens to all of your personal information when you discard your year-old laptop for the latest, more efficient model? It certainly pays to give this some serious thought.
The answer is always no. Similarly, throwing an old smart phone or other Ewaste on the footpath is definitely a bad idea. Personal fraud or identity fraud is a well known crime type that poses a growing threat to communities around the world, resulting from the rapid development and availability of internet technology and the increase in popularity of electronic storage, transmission and sharing of data. So while most people shred old bank statements and bills, and keep PIN numbers private, not much thought is given while discarding old laptops or smart phones in dumpsters, and thus willingly inviting the neighborhood fraudster or hacker to make use of personal information.
Regardless of the type of industry they are in-banking, online retail or pharmaceutical-business owners and companies not just handle their own confidential information, but also confidential and financial information of their customers and clients. Huge companies like Sony have faced security breach by hackers which infiltrated the firms systems and stole private details of more than a million people.
While everyone talks about the importance of recycling electronic waste responsibly, the threat of hackers and fraudsters add another dimension to why recycling electronic waste with companies who run a scrupulous business should be of prime importance. When seeking an Ewaste recycler, always confirm their data destruction policy. Some may only carry out data wiping or re formatting. It is advisable to go for an Ewaste recycling company which offers physical data destruction where hard drives are taken apart and then shredded in a way that it would be impossible to rebuild it and retrieve information.
