Securis Receives NAID Certification
Securis, Inc., a leader in the Washington, DC metropolitan area providing data destruction and electronics recycling services received AAA certification from the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) for Computer Hard Drive destruction..
NAID is a nationally-recognized authority on secure data destruction with hundreds of members across North America. NAID’s mission is to promote the information destruction industry and the standards and ethics of its member companies.
Applicants are subjected to a critical review of the company Policies and Procedures manual, vehicle security, employee history, and overall destruction process to verify that the company meets the certification requirements. AAA NAID members must be audited annually to maintain certification.
“The award of this certification is a momentous occasion for Securis. The AAA certification adds another layer of protection and security that we have strived to provide for our clients since our company’s inception.
NAID’s AAA Certification process offers organizations guidance on establishing a secure data destruction program. More and more organizations are seeking companies like Securis to take care of their data storage devices. Some are still holding onto those seemingly archaic floppy disks while most companies require the disposal of all hard drives during their equipment refresh programs. Regardless of what type of magnetic data disk that needs to be destroyed, Securis has the arsenal to complete the task. The company’s mobile unit is a 4,000-lb dual shaft shredder while their secure facility houses a HPM-1 NSA-approved degausser.
Securis, Inc. is the only data destruction firm in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC area to receive this certification for the Mobile operation of computer hard drive destruction. The company is moving to a newer, larger facility in July 2010 in which Securis will pursue the Plant-based operation for computer hard drive destruction.
