Perhaps there has never been more awareness about the risks of a data breach than there is today. The high profile hacks targeting multinational companies and even prominent political parties have thrust privacy into the public spotlight.
While digital privacy is distinct from non-digital privacy, a world-class paper shredding company is something that every business needs to engage. Every company accumulates paper documents with sensitive material on them, as well as other forms of information which need to be destroyed.
How can companies identify the best professional shredders? Keep reading to learn what qualities a professional shredder needs to be considered an industry leader.
Businesses need to know that the companies they engage to eliminate data liabilities meet certain standards. The only way they can is by hiring a company that is a member of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID).
NAID, now under i-SIGMA, is the only industry watchdog group that ensures companies comply with all known data protection laws through scheduled and surprise audits. All its security professionals are properly trained and accredited, fulfilling customers’ regulatory due diligence.
