Clients and Markets
Brass Valley proudly serves some of the most security and environmentally conscious companies in the world. Our client list includes companies from the financial services, healthcare, and broadcast industries, as well as Fortune 1000 members.
Most broadcast companies have historically had a hybrid strategy for retiring their old electronics. One part of the business uses a traditional recycler for IT equipment and the other part of the business uses brokers to buy their retired broadcast equipment.
The problem is that with increasing security policies neither the traditional broadcast brokers or recycling companies know how to manage broadcast equipment from a security perspective.
Brass Valley has supported leaders in the Broadcast industry for over 10 years.

Maintaining compliance for the financial services industry presents some unique challenges in that as an industry, you are probably impacted by the most regulations for safeguarding information outside of the defense industry.
On the other hand your industry is also a prime target for a breach and under constant assault. It’s only going to get worse too. Regulations will increase and efforts to breach your defenses will also increase. Getting by with a minimum effort, or doing what you’ve always done to maintain compliance for retired IT assets just isn’t good enough anymore.
You have too much exposure and too much at stake to hope that the way you’ve always been doing things will hold up. As a quick example, you probably have a policy for managing hard drives but have you addressed embedded media?
Can you prove your IP Address and passwords were erased from all your old switches, IP Phones, smart UPS’s?

Compliance in Healthcare means compliance with the safeguard principal:
“SAFEGUARDS PRINCIPLE: Individually identifiable health information should be protected with reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and availability and to prevent unauthorized or inappropriate access, use, or disclosure.” Excerpt from www.hhs.gov
The important question to ask here is what is reasonable?
Is it reasonable to assume that you have firewalls on your network to prevent unauthorized access?
If it makes sense to protect your network from intrusion while equipment is online, wouldn’t it also make sense to protect access to your network from being obtained from your decommissioned equipment?
What about the increased connectivity of medical devices?
Doesn’t it also make sense to treat them possible gateways to your network and in turn sensitive information?
Shrinking Budgets Affecting Effective Compliance Measures
Mostly due to time constraints and shrinking budgets the Healthcare industry is lagging in effective compliance measure to safeguard data from decommissioned IT and Medical assets.
Let’s face it, outside of your concern for what hard drives might contain you don’t give much thought to other vulnerabilities you may have. You probably also haven’t given much thought to the type of documentation you would need to present if something went wrong either.
If you would like to close the gap from where you are to where you should be contact us for a free consultation. We’re built to work with Healthcare:
