National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is the international trade association for companies that sets the standards for the information destruction industry. Shred-X Document Destruction is proud to be a founding member of NAID Australasia. NAID Australasia’s mission is to protect Australasian business and consumers from the misuse of sensitive information.
NAID seeks to raise awareness about the importance of properly destroying discarded information, both paper based and electronic. Through it’s active role in the development and implementation of industry standards and certification NAID created the AAA Certification to give customers total peace of mind.
NAID AAA certification auditors verify that protocols are in place to ensure the security of confidential material throughout all stages of the destruction process such as handling, transporting, storing materials prior to destruction, and destroying and disposing of materials responsibly. The policies and procedures of document destruction providers are further scrutinised with a comprehensive program of scheduled and unannounced audits.
