For years, IT asset disposal has been considered a logistical and operational challenge. However, due to the explosion of data breaches associated with lost, stolen or compromised enterprise data storage devices, IT asset disposal is now a full-fledged element of the global cyber security and data security challenge.
Securis, a franchise industry leader in electronic recycling and data destruction services, has just announced a June 16th Grand Opening at 11:30AM with a ribbon cutting ceremony at Noon. The new Securis location, based in Norfolk, will serve business and government clients in Hampton Roads.
Securis has always understood the critical role of IT asset disposal in the data security equation. The company has consistently led the market by designing its services around a rigorous set of criteria to ensure reputable, secure, dependable and convenient IT asset recycling services. Securis provides a full range of e-waste disposal services embraced by private and public sector companies, government entities, healthcare, financial services, law firms, pharmaceutical, engineering & consulting agencies, among many others.
Hampton Roads Securis Franchise owners Allan and Shannon Jenik bring with them a broad and impressive background. During more than 20 years in executive leadership positions at companies including Harley-Davidson and Bass Pro Shops, Allan was instrumental in helping those organizations develop customer focused cultures. While working for Harley-Davidson, he saw firsthand how important data security was for both dealers and the parent company. Locking down their networks and infrastructure to protect against data breach was a critical element in their efforts to develop a trusting relationship with their customers. Owning a Securis franchise allows Jenik to build upon his interest in helping companies eliminate the liability of data breach with proper IT asset disposition and secure data destruction.
“I’m excited to be part of the Hampton Roads business community” says Jenik. “As organizations become increasingly concerned about data security issues, certified hard drive shredding and destruction has become vitally important. The large number of Government, Defense, Healthcare and Financial businesses in Southern Virginia have created an increased demand for secure, environmentally responsible electronics recycling services. My company provides a unique solution to a serious, growing problem.”
Jenik is a member of the Hampton Roads and Peninsula Chambers of Commerce and AFCEA. On a personal note, he enjoys spending time with his wife Shannon and three children. Shannon, a 1st grade teacher in the Virginia Beach School District, is a member of the CHKD Seashell Circle who enjoys coaching and playing soccer.
In 2015 Allan and Shannon joined as franchise owners for the Securis electronics recycling and data destruction location serving Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Hampton, Williamsburg, and Newport News in the Hampton Roads region.
