This policy describes guidelines your organization can follow to track, process and decommission IT equipment.
From the policy:
An organization’s IT hardware inventory constitutes a significant capital investment in order to perform company operations. Because hardware represents a critical asset and often holds organizational data, it is important for the company to track each component from purchase and deployment to decommissioning and disposal.
This policy describes which components are subject to the policy, how and when the organization updates its hardware inventory, steps the organization must take when equipment is lost or stolen, and the decommissioning and disposal process.
This policy can be customized as needed to fit the needs of your organization.
