Bookmark and Share

In order to meet the growing number of NAID AAA Certified locations in Asia, Chief Compliance Officer Holly Vandervort will soon be heading to Hong Kong to contract and train an accredited physical and IT security professional. This person will be responsible for conducting announced and unannounced audits in the region.

While in Hong Kong, Vandervort will also meet with a number of NAID member-companies who have expressed interest in attaining NAID Certification.

“It’s very exciting but also challenging,” said Vandervort. “Considering the number of locations already in the region, the number of applications currently in the pipeline and the number of serious inquiries we’re receiving, establishing an NAID auditor in the region was critical.”

The Hong Kong auditor will join the 12 accredited Certified Protection Professionals (CPP) in North America, one in Europe and one in Australia to conduct NAID Certification audits around the world. The candidate, who will not be named until he completes his training, holds both a CPP accreditation from ASIS International and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) accreditation through ISC2.
