Information Disposition Textbook Now Available on Kindle

PHOENIX, Ariz., June 20, 2019– The secure data destruction industry guide and CSDS textbook, Information disposition: A Practical Guide to the Secure, Compliant Disposal of Records, Media and IT Assets is now available for purchase on Kindle.

Originally published two years ago by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) and written by the association’s CEO and industry veteran, Robert J. Johnson, the book became available publicly on Amazon just last month after previously only being available for purchase directly through the association or partner associations.

“NAID continues to work to ensure that as many industry professionals, from service providers to regulatory compliance officers and even those studying to enter the IT disposition field can be as well educated on proper information disposition as possible. Therefore, making it easy to access the publication was a must,” said i-SIGMA Director of Marketing & Communications Kelly Martínez.

Information Dispositionis the first comprehensive digest covering the wide range of issues related to protecting information at its most vulnerable point – the end of its life cycle. According to Robert J. Johnson, the author, the book contains everything one needs to know, “It even includes policies and templates to create a state-of-the-art, compliant and secure information destruction program.”

Topics covered include:

  • How to pick a service provider
  • What regulations require
  • Risk management best practices
  • What to include in an RFP or contract

This 272-page textbook is also the official guide for the Certified Secure Destruction Specialist® (CSDS) Accreditation Program.
