SEAM Press Release: SDBA Endorsed Vendor
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SDBA/SDBIS Adds Technology Security Company to its Elite List of Endorsed Vendors
SIOUX FALLS, S.D., 9 MARCH 2017 – Secure Enterprise Asset Management, Inc. (SEAM), a provider of electronic asset recovery, data destruction, and disposition services for corporate organizations and financial institutions, has announced its endorsement from the South Dakota Bankers Association (SDBA), the professional and trade association for South Dakota’s financial services industry.
As banks grow, consolidate and go through refresh cycles, IT equipment becomes a key area of risk, particularly for the banking sector. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, 2015 marked the first time in history that the financial industry has ranked in the top three, at 9.1 percent of all breaches, nearly doubling the average from 2014. SEAM offers a secure solution to prevent the risk of a data breach or loss when technology reaches the end of its operational lifespan.
SEAM provides IT asset disposition services to organizations across South Dakota and the surrounding states. The company separates itself from the competition with its knowledge of regulatory requirements, years of trusted experience and certifications with the highest worldwide standards for data security, environmental management, health, safety and quality processes.
“We are thrilled about our new partnership with the South Dakota Bankers Association,” said Levi Hentges, Director of Business Development. “As the only fully-certified ITAD provider in all of the Dakotas, we understand the security risks banks face when decommissioning their IT equipment. Our data destruction and asset disposal services bring a cost effective, efficient and lower-risk solution for security compliance to the SDBA’s membership.”
Endorsed vendors are closely reviewed and selected based on their ability to meet the SDBA’s high expectations for quality and service.
“We are pleased to announce SEAM as our newest endorsed vendor,” said Mike Feimer, president, South Dakota Bankers Insurance & Services, Inc. “They bring a unique set of services that will greatly benefit our members. We look forward to a successful partnership and are excited about the security advantages they will offer.”
The association endorses vendors who provide quality products and services to improve competitive standing and/or increase profitability, while enhancing the value of SDBA membership for their members.
