Zero-Trust also applies to ITAD
When it comes to sensitive data, trust is a luxury today's organizations can't afford.

That's exactly why the Zero-Trust security model has gained acceptance as the go-to framework for network security. But Zero-Trust isn't just effective in combating modern cyber threats — it's also the cornerstone of an effective IT asset disposition strategy.

Whereas Zero-Trust network access is about permission (Do you have permission to be on this network?) Zero-Trust computer recycling is about possession (Do you have possession of this asset?).

Assets get lost or stolen in transit, manifests are filled with errors, and equipment is sold off through shady remarketing channels. Worst of all, even though these open your company up to significant financial and legal liability, it's you, not your vendor, that's left holding the bag when things go south.

Ransomware is all over the news right now. But it's not just gaps in your firewall that these hackers are looking for; it's your old computer equipment. A single unsecured asset can create a plethora of problems because these backdoors make it easy to install ransomware.
Traditional trust-based ITAD create a nightmare for data security and a dilemma for IT asset management. Traditional trust-based ITAD is ineffective.

As John Kindervag eloquently states, the point of Zero Trust is not to make networks more trusted; it's to eliminate the concept of trust.

The point of Zero-Trust ITAD is not to make disposal vendors more trusted; it's to eliminate the concept of trust from ITAD.
