NAID Consumer Attitudes Survey Data Coming in June

Bookmark and Share

NAID is currently culling through the massive amount of data resulting from the recently concluded 2006 NAID Consumer Attitudes Survey.

While the data will take a while to fully process and integrate, there are already several very interesting top level findings; both confirming and contradicting conventional perceptions.

The preliminary report on the results indicates that while roughly 89% of all respondents said that their firms are "very" (59%) to "somewhat" (30%) concerned about safeguarding discarded information, only 37% reported utilizing an outside contractor for any sort of information destruction and close to 40% of those firms used the service only for periodic purges. Of those firms that reported they did not use a shredding service, 97% said they shredded internally.

Included in the dozens of critical consumer attitudes remaining to be dissected are:

  • why clients would change service providers
  • what would make consumers buy in the first place
  • what keeps them from outsourcing
  • whether they require contracts
  • who makes the buying decision
  • what they know about legislation
  • how they handle e-destruction

Only NAID Members will have access to the complete analysis and interpretation of the data, which is coming soon.
