NAID offers new certification notification to consumers

10 Oct. 2013

With many clients relying on NAID certification to validate their service providers’ security and regulatory compliance, the association has now made it easier to monitor.

Under the NAID membership directory listing for every NAID certified member is a “NAID AAA Notification” link. Clicking the link launches an email template requesting a notification of the renewal or lapsing of that location’s NAID AAA Certification. 

“The notification service comes as a result of requests from consumers who are requiring NAID AAA Certification from their data destruction vendors,” said NAID Certification Rules Chair Angie Singer Keating. “At its heart, it is not so new,” added Keating. “The NAID office has been unofficially responding to such requests over the years. This simply formalizes the process and makes it more accessible.”

Over the coming months the association staff will be encouraging clients to use the new notification service.
