No matter the industry, all businesses and organizations must uphold a high standard of ethics to protect the welfare of their employees and the people they serve. As a result, each industry often has governing bodies to enforce policies and regulations. In addition, governing bodies ensure organizations are held to the highest level of standard. For the information destruction industry that governing body is the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID).
NAID is the international, non-profit, trade association of the information destruction industry. NAID’s mission is to educate businesses and organizations on the importance of proper information destruction. As well as promote innovation and protect the confidentiality of information. Members of the association are expected to maintain a philosophy of professionalism and abide by the NAID Code of Ethics.
The NAID AAA Certified Advantage
The NAID AAA Certification program is a voluntary program for companies providing information destruction services. NAID AAA certified companies take the protection of private, sensitive and personal information seriously. That’s why when you outsource document destruction to a NAID AAA certified company you can be confident your information will be handled with the best and most up to date security protocols.
How It Works
Through the AAA certification program, NAID members must agree to scheduled and unscheduled audits of both mobile and plant-based, paper and digital information destruction services. Certified Protection Professionals (CPP) conduct both scheduled and unscheduled audits and make sure the best protocols and procedures are in place for the transport and destruction of information. To earn and retain the NAID AAA certification, organizations must follow the ethics and expectations set forth by the NAID, as well as abide state and government compliance and protection policies.
