Educational institutions record both staff and students pertinent information and keep that information on-file including name, address, high school transcript, social security number, phone number, credit card information, email address and more. With such a large amount of data collected on every staff member and student, data security and destruction are of the utmost importance.
Educational systems are required to abide by over 120 laws and regulations regarding student information. It's crucial that your educational institution finds an efficient, safe, and secure ITAD & Electronics Recycling partner. From pre-schools to universities, SMR can handle IT Assets from every discipline.

SMR remains compliant with our data destruction services along with our Certificate of Disposition to showcase data destruction and responsible recycling when it comes to audit requests.
