Why is it important to use a NAID certified company?
- NAID sets the standards for the information destruction industry. NAID AAA Certification is a comprehensive audit program that helps organizations meet laws and regulations requiring protection of confidential customer information.
- NAID’s certification program is recognized by thousands of private and governmental organizations around the world.
- NAID auditors have Certified Protection Professional accreditation from ASIS International.
- NAID auditors verify that protocols are in place to ensure the security of confidential material throughout all stages of the destruction process.
- An extensive, three-level background screening process verifies that no individual with a known history of related crimes will be handling confidential material.
- A comprehensive unannounced audit program means that certified companies may receive an unannounced audit on any day, at any time.
- The Certification Review Board tracks reports of non-compliance and takes immediate remedial action to bring companies back into compliance. Repeat or serious infractions will result in fines and may result in removal of certification.
