As more and more companies and businesses have moved to utilize electronic records, businesses have to be especially careful about securing their data. While this applies to live data, it also applies to keeping old information secure, including information that is stored on old electronic devices such as hard drives that are no longer in use. NAID is the National Association of Information Destruction. NAID is important because it is the international association that is responsible for setting the standards on the destruction of electronic and paper data. 

ITAD can assist companies in assuring that they meet NAID standards. If you’re wondering what is itad, it stands for IT Asset Disposition. That is, it is a set of regulations or standards that go into determining how to dispose of obsolete IT equipment in a way that is both safe and ecologically responsible. Often times, utilizing a third party, e-waste recycling company is the best way to ensure that old devices are safety and effectively destroyed and recycled. When you use a company that is NAID AAA certified, it means that the company has met the high quality standards set by the National Association of Information Destruction. Working with a AAA Certified company can also ensure that all of your confidential records have been safety destroyed.
