The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is the international, non-profit trade association for companies providing information destruction services. NAID’s mission is to champion the protection of personally identifiable information, intellectual property, as well as regulatory compliance through the secure disposition of information and media in all forms by promoting customer best-practices using qualified service providers. In this blog, we highlight the benefits of partnering with a NAID AAA Certified destruction company.
To earn NAID AAA Certification, a shredding and destruction company must meet strict security standards and carry a minimum of $2,000,000 in general liability insurance (umbrella or aggregate). These standards ensure unrivaled privacy protection for the companies they serve. Shredding and destruction companies can earn NAID AAA Certification for off-site and on-site shredding. On-site shredding takes place at your business with a mobile shredding truck, enabling first-hand witnessing of destruction.
Verified Due Diligence
NAID AAA Certified shredding and destruction companies must offer their customers a Certificate of Destruction. This document records the date, time, and method of destruction. A Certificate of Destruction offers legal proof of your organization’s compliance with state and federal privacy laws.
NAID AAA Certified shredding companies agree to announced and unannounced audits to verify their ongoing compliance with NAID standards. Independent information security professionals who have earned Certified Protection Professional (CPP®) accreditation perform the audits, assessing the following areas:
- Destruction particle size
- Operational security
- Liability insurance
- Destruction equipment safety
- Security procedures
This audit process ensures you receive a destruction solution that offers unrivaled security and value.
NAID is dedicated to advancing high ethical standards within the information destruction industry and expects is member partners to meet these standards. NAID AAA Certified shredding companies must abide by a professional code of ethics that includes:
- Honesty, truthfulness, and fairness
- Adherence to privacy regulations
