What is included in Certification in IT Asset Disposition

Course Description

The IAITAM IT Asset Disposition (CITAD) certification course prepares individuals to manage the IT asset disposal process within an organization. Best practices in IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) are broken down from policy management and data security to chain of custody transitioning. Attendees whose job responsibilities include ITAD will know how to avoid risk of data loss and the public exposure that surrounds a breakdown in ITAD process management. ITAD best practices, financial return, data security global implications and the importance of vendor management are just a few of the topics incorporated in the CITAD course. With IAITAM’s ITAD Best Practices, ITAD will no longer be viewed as corporate overhead, but rather a profit center and area of risk mitigation.
