August 30, 2017
NAID's mission is to promote the information destruction industry and the standards and ethics of its member companies. One means of supporting this mission is to reach out to Buying Group Associations and potential members and to educate. NAID has always pursued this course and 2017 is no exception!
Earlier this year, NAID Board Director and Industry Action Committee Chair, Glenn Laga of Guardian Data Destruction, and CSDS Board of Regents Chair, Joe Harford, CSDS of Reclamere, represented the association in Las Vegas by sharing about NAID AAA Certification at the IAITAM Annual Conference. The International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers, Inc. (IAITAM) is the professional association for individuals and organizations involved in any aspect of IT Asset Management, Software Asset Management, Hardware Asset Management, and the life-cycle processes supporting IT Asset Management in organizations of every size and industry across the globe. 
When asked how the presentation went, Harford divulged, "The presentation went well, and you could see people's eyes opening as they became aware of the data security concerns that they are ultimately liable."
The mission continues this autumn, as NAID has presences at the following up-coming events:


E-Scrap 2017

  • What is it About? The annual E-Scrap Conference is widely regarded as the most highly concentrated gathering of electronics recyclers in the world. Last year’s event reportedly attracted an estimated 1,250 attendees from more than 38 countries.

“It’s obviously a great honor to be invited to speak at such a highly-regarded event,” says Johnson. “There are still too many electronics recyclers missing out on the service revenue and customer loyalty that result when they take a serious approach to data protection.”
