Why should your organisation be concerned about how you dispose of data?

KPMG International found that 10 percent of all data breaches were caused by improper asset disposal and another 11 percent resulted from human error.

Using software to overwrite an asset, as opposed to formatting and deleting, ensures that all of the data is removed and can never be retrieved.
