NAID considers Asian data protection study as first step to promote secure destruction

Bookmark and Share

The NAID Board of Directors is considering a number of initiatives to promote the secure destruction industry in Asia. Among the projects currently being evaluated, is a research project to document any and all current data protection regulations and guidelines in the region. In addition, the project would compare regional and country data protection regulations and penalties as well as contrast that information with American data protection regulations.

NAID CEO Bob Johnson said, “It makes sense to start with a thorough analysis of regional data protection regulations, specifications and penalties. We found that policymakers are interested to know about the laws in surrounding countries. It gives them a good reason to meet with us and adds to our credibility.”

Once completed, NAID will use the study to arrange meetings with the major data protection officials in the region. 

“It is a logical way to launch our Asian development strategy and we are optimistic the board will approve the project,” added Johnson.
