What is NAID (The National Association for Information Destruction), and What Do They Do?

The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is a trade association that focuses on promoting secure information destruction practices. NAID is dedicated to setting industry standards, providing certification programs, and advocating for secure data destruction across various industries.

NAID’s primary objective is to ensure the secure disposal of sensitive information to prevent data breaches, identity theft, and unauthorized access to confidential data. They offer resources, guidelines, and best practices for organizations and professionals involved in information destruction.

They also develop and promote industry standards and best practices for information destruction. These standards cover a wide range of topics, including physical destruction, digital data sanitization, secure storage, and risk assessment. In addition, NAID actively engages in advocacy efforts to influence legislation and regulations related to information destruction. They work with government agencies, policymakers, and industry stakeholders to shape policies that address data protection and secure disposal practices.

NAID offers certification programs, such as the AAA certification granted to Advantage DS3, for service providers involved in information destruction. These programs include rigorous audits and assessments to ensure compliance with industry standards and best practices. By offering certification, education, advocacy, and industry standards, NAID plays a crucial role in promoting secure information destruction practices and raising awareness about the importance of information security.
