How Risky Is Tossing Your Old Servers? Maybe [as risky as a] $60,000,000 Fine [telecom]

We all have them. Old computers sitting around in storage, never to be
used again. Broken servers that have passed their prime. Laptops
abandoned for their newer, shinier versions.

And what do you do with them? If these are business computers and you
were considering tossing them into the trash can or hauling them to
the landfill, you could be courting serious risk for your company.
Improper disposal of data holders can lead to embarrassment, lawsuits
and fines.
