- Southeastern Data, an Orlando, Florida-based company specializing in professional e-recycling services and e-waste disposal solutions such as hard drive destruction, has received the prestigious and highly-accredited NAID AAA certification for data security, an accolade that is related to the assurance of proper destruction of sensitive data.
NAID (the National Association of Information Destruction) sets the standards for information destruction of electronic and paper data while protecting consumers by auditing the qualifications of information destruction service providers – like Southeastern Data – globally. It also indulges in research to create more widespread recognition of the information destruction sector while improving processes.
NAID AAA certification verifies that stringent qualifications for secure information destruction are being met, with certification specifications pertaining to more than 20 areas of security and operational requirements including video surveillance, particle size, transport, employee screening and training, access control and written policies/procedures. To this end and throughout all stages of the destruction process, Southeastern Data employees are certified to verify that protocols are in place with regard to the security of confidential material.
Further, an in-depth background screening process comprised of three levels is administered to Southeastern Data staff to verify that no individual with an associated history of related crimes will be handling confidential material. According to NAID representatives, a regimented, unannounced and comprehensive audit program ensures that certified entities such as Southeastern Data operate knowing they could experience an unannounced audit on any day at any time, thus providing a powerful motivational driving force for ongoing compliance.
In working with a NAID AAA-certified organization like Southeastern Data, clients can rest assured knowing that their information destruction is in good hands and that the protocols used to meet strict requirements. What’s more, if Southeastern Data reps ever need to present proof that their confidential records have been destroyed in compliance with information industry regulations, the company can validate that it has promptly complied.
