Wisetek CEO Sean Sheehan (pictured) said: “Irish companies are particularly concerned about data breaches emanating from used IT equipment, particularly with the imminent introduction of the new GDPR regulations and the immense financial penalties they will face from May 2018.
“Wisetek provides on-site evidential data destruction and erasure services to secure data and also recover optimal financial value for used IT assets on behalf of our clients, whilst ensuring all e-waste material is processed to the Ireland’s EPA highest WEEELABEX recycling Standard”.
