Transcript: “Then after we write down what we say we’re going to do, we do what we wrote down. Because I think a lot of organizations do have written policies somewhere. No one knows where they are, no one’s adhering to them. They don’t share it with their vendor. Right. That’s a common issue that I think that we see is that our customers consider most of their internal processes confidential, and they play things a little close to the vest sometimes where if you have a disposal policy, you should share it with your disposal vendor, because your disposal vendor is going to be the one who’s going to point out if they’re any good. You’re not following your policy. We have agents all around the country contacting us, disposing of equipment with media that’s un-sanitized, not encrypted, or whatever it might be. That’s a good check and balance to your program. But if your disposal vendor doesn’t know what you’re supposed to be doing, they can’t help you do it.”
