E-Waste and Electronic Recycling Services

Electronics are a common necessity for billions of businesses all over the globe. This is the era of digitalization and every company, regardless of the niche, wants to integrate technology as part of their day-to-day activities. This is a good thing. It enables us to do tasks quickly that previously required hours or even days to do. It helps us optimize our workloads and become more proficient at our jobs. But, the sheer amount of electronics has given birth to a serious problem that didn’t exist a decade or so ago; e-waste.

What is E-Waste or Electronic Recycling?

E-waste or Electronic Recycling is the disassembly and separation of components and raw materials of waste electronics.  Any electronic device that is either obsolete, or isn’t needed by the company that previously owned it. The worst part about e-waste is that it isn’t considered to be as dangerous to the extent that it actually is.

We spend our entire lives around electronics which has developed the mentality that they aren’t hazardous. A computer sitting on your desk doesn’t pose any real threat.

But, our computers actually contain materials like mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, etc. If they aren’t disposed of properly, they could create a long list of illnesses and health related issues.

However, there are companies that are experts that know how to properly dispose of e-waste to ensure that it doesn’t end up hurting the environment in any way or form. Before we get to that, let’s talk about how you can reduce the waste so there is no need for electronic recycling at all.

E-waste presents a potential security threat to individuals and companies. Hard drives that are not properly erased before the computer is disposed of can be reopened, exposing sensitive information. Credit card numbers, private financial data, account information and records of online transactions can be accessed by most willing individuals.

There are ways to ensure that not only hardware is destroyed but also the private data on the hard drive!

How Can You Reduce E-Waste?

Futureproofed Purchases

Future proofing your purchases are always a good idea to reduce e-waste. If you don’t have to upgrade, you won’t have to toss your old hardware in the junk.

The best course of acting is to buy hardware that won’t go obsolete in the near future. Your requirements of how good of a computer the company needs obviously depends on what industry your company belongs to.

But, if you buy base hardware that won’t need to be changed in the future, for example, buying a motherboard that will support future processors, buying a case that can support future motherboards, etc. is a good way to future proof hardware. 

We’re more sustainable together.

Recycling your old computers and devices keeps this toxic waste out of landfills, and it provides numerous benefits to the environment as well as your community.

Repair Whenever You Can

A lot of times, we don’t care for a repair. If the repair is a bit costly, we just go ahead and buy a new device even if it costs three times what the repair would have cost.

This isn’t the right course of action. If the previous hardware fulfills the purpose you need it for, it’s recommended to repair as much as you can. By keeping it in use, you’re keeping it out of the landfill.

Cyber Security for Business

  • A vulnerability is a weakness in design, implementation, operation, or internal control. An exploitable vulnerability is one for which at least one working attack or “exploit” exists. Vulnerabilities can be researched, reverse-engineered, hunted, or exploited using automated tools or customized scripts. To secure a computer system, it is important to understand the attacks that can be made against it. Like an example a backdoor in a computer system, a cryptosystem or an algorithm, is any secret method of bypassing normal authentication or security controls.
  • Denial of service attacks (DoS) are designed to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. Attackers can deny service to individual victims, such as by deliberately entering a wrong password enough consecutive times to cause the victim’s account to be locked, or they may overload the capabilities of a machine or network and block all users at once.
  • An unauthorized user gaining physical access to a computer is most likely able to directly copy data from it. They may also compromise security by making operating system modifications, installing software worms, keyloggers, covert listening devices or using wireless mice. Even when the system is protected by standard security measures, these may be able to be by-passed by booting another operating system or tool from a CD-ROM or other bootable media. Disk encryption and Trusted Platform Module are designed to prevent these attacks.
  • Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details directly from users by deceiving the users. Phishing is typically carried out by email spoofing or instant messaging, and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose “look” and “feel” are almost identical to the legitimate one.
