23 July 2020 @ 2:00 PM EDT / 19:00 GMT

Though no one is certain what things will look like on the other side of the current shutdown, most agree everything will be affected. So, what does that mean for ITAD? Will organizations hold onto their equipment longer, or does increased digitization mean they will need to upgrade? Will refurbished equipment, often sold into the consumer market, now be of interest to cash strapped businesses looking to save money? Will it mean less competition and what will that competition look like? Hear what four industry thought leaders think about these questions and more as we discuss the outlook for the ITAD industry in the recovering world economy.

Webinar 7 – When The S#@t Hits the Fan: Planning for Investigations and Accusations

28 July 2020 @ 2:00 PM EDT / 19:00 GMT

It doesn’t only happen to the other guy, and when it does happen, it will be at the worst possible time. Maybe it will be in response to a possible breach your firm is obligated to report. Maybe it has nothing to do with your firm. It could be your customer has a problem and is looking for someone to blame. One way or another, every vendor that handles regulated data needs to be prepared for investigations or accusations. Training, contracts, insurance, and a dozen other factors are in play, and it is a whole lot easier if you have thought about it before it happens instead of in the middle of it. This evergreen session is all about being ready.

Webinar 10 – When the Dust Clears: What Things May Look Like in 3 Years

6 August 2020 @ 2:00 PM EDT / 19:00 GMT

It’s been said that things will never be the same. It’s also been said that customers have a short memory. Adopting an “only-time-will-tell” approach is risky. Even though no one knows for sure, it makes much more sense to think through the contingencies and plan ahead. In this session, top industry leaders who are paid to anticipate the future of secure information destruction and information management will share their insights on where these services will be on the other side of the COVID-19 shutdown.
