For the sake of our clients & our colleagues, data security is something that should be of utmost importance to all.
It takes a tremendous amount of trust to provide sensitive personal & financial information in the first place and making sure that everything is properly handled & destroyed when your devices reach their end of life is the responsible thing to do.
What’s more, data security is reinforced often through the implementation of rigid laws set at the state & federal levels of government. Thankfully, there is a way of avoiding substantial fines and your company suffering a devastating blow to your reputation: proper electronics recycling & data destruction through SAMR Inc.
Albert Boufarah, founder & President of SAMR Inc, started the company over two decades ago, before the advent of the smartphone and not too long after the Internet opened up a whole new world of possibilities.
“At the time, it was becoming apparent that information was becoming increasingly portable, including account numbers, passwords, and other things that you don’t want getting scavenged.”, he stated.
“Data destruction is not a mere afterthought for us – it’s one of our purposes in this world. We have made great investments in everything from our extensive certifications to acquiring top-of-the-line equipment, and we provide Certificates of Destruction for each job that we do.”.
Regardless of whether you run a small medical office or a multinational conglomerate, you’re going to have technology upgrades and encounter the need for data destruction services. Boufarah offered some advice on what to consider when it comes to choosing a partner for that endeavor.
1. Make sure you use a secure facility:
In keeping with industry guidelines, it’s always wise to choose a facility that you can count on for its security: a place like SAMR Inc which is staffed by trained personnel and operates a facility that is under 24-hour camera surveillance.
You can always take solace in knowing that your old devices will be handled as carefully as they were while in your home.
2. Consider the environment – repurpose your electronics
Boufarah took an interest in recycling during his formative years, and his passion was in front of mind when it came to establishing SAMR Inc.
"One of my favorite quotes is 'a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'. Even the most minor adjustments in our lifestyles can make a big difference.", he said. From proper disposal of household trash to reusing the exterior metal & plastic in old electronics to create new devices, everything we do combine helps guide us toward our goal of a cleaner, greener future.
3. Recycling your e-waste is not only vital - it's the law
Proper handling & demanufacturing of electronics is paramount in our society for a number of reasons: particularly, the damage that decomposing devices can do to the fertile soil & water streams.
This is why governing bodies around the world have taken action to mandate the proper recycling of all electronic devices.
When you choose SAMR Inc to recycle your old material, not only is it a sign of commitment toward destroying any sensitive information belonging to your clients & employees - it (along with inventory asset tracking, which is highly recommended for medical professionals) can save you from incurring significant fines down the road.
You can't go wrong when you use a multi-faceted recycling solution that covers all the bases. "SAMR Inc was designed as a company that simplifies electronics recycling.
From transportation & packaging to data destruction on-site or at our facility, we take care of everything.", Boufarah adds. "And while many recyclers are very discriminating as to what they accept, SAMR Inc is different because we take anything with a plug or battery.".
Founded in New Jersey, SAMR Inc has been providing electronics recycling & data destruction to businesses, municipalities, schools & individuals for over two decades. They pride themselves on providing prompt, punctual service to everyone that they work with.
