IAITAM CITAD TRAININGCourse level: Basic- Minimal to no experience required
The IAITAM Certification in IT Asset Disposition (“CITAD”) 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, data security to chain of custody transitioning. Attendees whose job responsibilities include ITAD will take away the knowledge of how to avoid the risk of data loss and public exposure that surround 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.
This course exposes the attendee to numerous concepts for ITAM that are relevant for both direct application and as a means of discussion for those persons who will implement, manage and direct ITAM initiatives for their organizations.
