“Getting Bob in front of audiences is one of our key strategies,” said NAID Public Relations Chair David Surdyk. “The good news is that there are many organizations interested in what he has to say.”

Earlier this month, NAID CEO Bob Johnson opened the Annual ARMA-GLA Seminar with a two-hour presentation on the importance of employee training and establishing a defendable vendor selection process. The presentation included a showing the new NAID AAA Certification Video, “Beyond the Claims and Promises,” as well as the Customer Employee Training video.

This week Johnson is speaking in Toronto at the 2012 Ontario Public Service Conference: The Future of Security in a session titled, “The Evolution of Information Management and Destruction Within Large Organizations.” Also in May, Johnson will address the International Electronics Recycling Conference in Las Vegas, Nev.    

In the next few months, he has been tapped to present at the combined conferences of ASIS International 58th Annual Seminar and Exhibits and (ISC)² Security Congress in Philadelphia, Penn. Upwards of 20,000 physical and electronics security professionals are expected to attend this event.Johnson talk will be“The Role of Due Diligence in Selecting Data-related Service Providers.”

“The common theme of all my presentations is the importance of vendor qualifications,” said Johnson. “Not only because those qualifications provide peace of mind, but because the regulations require it.”

Johnson will focus on NAID Certification and Downstream Data Coverage as examples of data-related vendor qualifications. He also intends to discuss the training tools available to the audience through their local NAID members. Johnson expects to add as many as four or five other major speaking engagements this year, not including the half a dozen NAID events currently planned.
