“On average, NAID Certification auditors visit 3.8 secure destruction operations every working day,” said Holly Vandervort, NAID Chief Compliance Officer.

Currently, 967 member locations participate in the operational security program, making it the most widely used and recognized third party vendor qualifications program in the hard copy or electronic information disposal arena.

“Actually, we would have exceeded 1,000 locations a while back,” added Vandervort. “But there were a large number of acquisitions in the industry that resulted in the merging of facilities.” 

Despite such attrition, at the current rate of growth, it is expected the program will exceed 1,000 member locations long before the end of the year.
