The difference between this business and some of the charities operating in this sector is that Kavanagh Recycling & Recovery is a professional IT Services Company specialising in IT Asset Disposal with emphasis on Data Destruction and Security. It is no longer good enough to rely on non IT specialists such as charities manned by volunteers to manage your data on end of life IT equipment. To emphasis this point, the penalties for offences under the Data Protection Act issued by the Data Protection Commissioner, in the event of a data breach via end of life equipment, can be up to €250,000.
