Here at SDDC we are often asked why NAID certification is so important, and why we always make a fuss about it.
With the new privacy laws coming up in March, it is now more important than ever for you to look carefully at your businesses service providers when it comes to privacy and security. In the past, businesses like yours could to a degree 'get away with' using a non certified document shredding company, as the worst that might have happened is you may be cautioned if audited. Coming in March onwards, if you are found to breach privacy laws you are faced with potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. The best way to avoid this risk is to have your business documents professionally destroyed by a service provider who is certified by NAID. A NAID certified business must abide by struct privacy rules and they will provide you with the correct certificate of destruction which you can show if audited.
