Board taps new director to chair Certification Rules Committee

8 May 2014

The NAID Board of Directors has approved the appointment of Eric Haas as the chairperson of the association’s Certification Rules Committee. Haas, who is a principal at A.R.M.S. in Appleton, Wis., also serves as a director on the NAID board.

“We are extremely lucky to have someone of Eric’s dedication and integrity serving in this critical leadership role,” said NAID CEO Bob Johnson. “The NAID Certification program is the most influential and successful data disposition standard in the world and it’s important that there’s strong leadership at the helm.”

The committee is responsible to continually evaluate the data security and regulatory environment around the world in order to make sure NAID’s certification program is aligned with the evolving requirements.

“We need to make sure that NAID Certification continues to validate that service providers meet all the requirements that customers are responsible to verify under the law,” said Haas. “So, not only will it continue to verify that appropriate security is in place, it also provides a practical way for clients to comply with their vendor selection requirements.”

The NAID Certification Rules Committee is comprised of a board-approved cross section of service providers, industry suppliers, and outside advisors who are accredited in data security and/or records management. Recommendations formulated by the rules committee are approved by the NAID board and subject to member comment prior to implementation.
