CANTON, Ohio — With a second wave of office and other business lockdowns on the horizon, the International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM) is mounting a major push to help organizations better protect their company assets and employees by releasing free educational resources.

Every day during December, IT Asset Management (ITAM) Awareness Month, the organization will offer free sessions that highlight the industry’s most popular topics or issues, including IT asset disposal (ITAD), data/privacy risks, licensing, mobile asset management, software asset management, and best practices. 

“If you aren’t managing your IT assets, you’re not managing your business properly,” said Barbara Rembiesa, president and CEO, IAITAM. “During COVID-19, ITAM professionals worked diligently to ensure that businesses stayed open and that employees could work from home. Many companies without ITAM programs were unprepared for the shutdowns and are still struggling to get back on their feet. What will they do now if there is a second lockdown?”
