Top 3 Benefits of Partnering with a NAID AAA Certified Company

How a NAID AAA certified partner offers reassurance and peace of mind.

Legal Shred is in the business of helping commercial and residential customers feel confident knowing their private data is safely destroyed. In addition to following all state and industry rules and regulations, we also believe in ongoing education and partnering with organizations to excel in our offering of destruction services.

In the paper shredding and document destruction industry, the authority for standards and regulations is the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID).

A division of the International Secure Information Governance and Management Association (i-SIGMA), this non-profit trade association offers quality assurance programs for the secure data destruction industry. It advocates for the total protection of personal information, intellectual property, and compliance requirements.

When it comes time to trust your own personal data or that of your business, partnering with a company that is NAID AAA certified offers reassurance and peace of mind that your documents are being handled by a qualified destruction company.

Here’s a look at the top 3 benefits of partnering with a NAID AAA Certified company:

  • You Never Have to Worry About Security

Security is at the core of the association’s processes. Providers that are NAID AAA Certified maintain restricted access to all documents and data and use locked boxes and secure containers for collecting papers and files. They also use trained, certified and uniformed technicians to come out and handle all waste pick-up and hauling.

  • They Practice Regular Auditing to Verify Compliance

The NAID certification process requires that all providers not only be audited at the time of their review but also performs regular, random audits throughout their accreditation. The audits, which are performed by certified professionals, include a thorough review of everything from hiring practices at the facility to the insurance that the service provider has in place.

* Legal Shred maintains Downstream Data Coverage, an additional professional liability insurance product offered to NAID Certified companies to add a safeguard to document shredding and destruction services.

  • The Association Sets High Ethical Standards

While high-security standards and auditing are critical, what sets NAID certified providers aside is the high level of ethics put in place by the association for partners to withhold. A code of ethics including transparent pricing for customers, truth and fairness the requirement the privacy policies be held in place are all mandatory.

Keep your business, employees and customers protected. Choose a provider that offers stringent security measures throughout the paper shredding and document destruction process.
