AMI: Servicing both the Public & Private Sector
AMI’s customer base is made up of both public and private sector companies. We provide ICT asset disposal and remarketing services to a variety of public sector organisations including Local Government, NHS, Education, Charities and Transport. Our private sector customers range in size from the sole trader to multinational organisations.
Both public and private sector organisations are legally required to have effective policies in place when it comes to responsible and secure IT asset disposal; this has been further reiterated with the introduction of recent legislation including the WEEE Directive.
With more and more data breach news stories hitting the headlines, both sectors are under increased pressure to protect their business data and information. According to the 2014 Information Security Breaches Survey, the cost of data breach incidents in 2014 has doubled since 2013.
Changes in the use of technology within business, including the increase in mobile devices and tablets and the shift to ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) means that personal and business data is now on the move, contributing to the difficulties around data protection. 7% of large organisations had a security or data breach in the last year involving smartphones or tablets (2014 Information Security Breaches Survey).
Particularly within public sector organisations, the struggle to reduce costs has led to companies opting to use cheaper, less secure IT asset disposal companies. Any breaches in data protection legislation, which compromise individuals or clients confidentiality, could potentially ruin an organisation financially and cause long term damage to its reputation. It must be highlighted that ultimately the responsibility for legal IT asset disposal falls with the organisation from whom the assets and data originated.
