SB092 Returns allocated devices when no longer needed

Returns allocated office equipment when no longer needed. This prevents idle devices from going into the wrong hands. Any work-related information on these devices (if not deleted already) will thus remain within the corporate network.

Why is it important?

Returning devices once no longer needed avoids these becoming lost/ stolen or forgotten about, as well as potentially left un-updated and vulnerable to attack.
