Shredding Certification

ChainofCustody-Shredding-certification

When you hire a company to shred your documents and destroy your hard drives, you are entrusting that organization with your customer's and your company's sensitive information. You deserve a guarantee that all your items are being destroyed using the most secure procedures and under the strictest monitoring system.

Your guarantee is NAID certification and our Secure Chain of Custody.

NAID Certification

The National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) is the worldwide authority on operational and security requirements for secure information destruction. They are the only consumer protection watchdog association that audits the qualifications of data destruction service providers. They offer certification only to those organizations who follow their stringent guidelines and maintain compliance with all their specifications and policies.

NAID's security specifications and policies include 20 areas of operational and security requirements, such as:

  • Particle Size
  • Employee Screening & Training
  • Access Control of Transport
  • Video Surveillance
  • Procedures
  • Record Keeping

Bayaud is AAA Certified by the National Association for Information Destruction. To maintain our certification, we must not only comply with these 20 areas of operational and security requirements, but we are also subject to surprise, unannounced audits by independent security auditors. You can see a copy of our current Certificate by clicking here NAID Certification.

Secure Chain of Custody

From the moment you surrender your confidential materials, they enter strict, monitored chain of custody. A member of our uniformed staff transports your items in a locked truck that is tracked by GPS. The truck transfers your items to our shredding facility that is under 24-hour surveillance. The end of custody is reached when you receive a Certificate of Destruction.

Protect Yourself and Your Customers' Information

When choosing a document shredding or hard drive destruction service, insist on a company that complies with the most rigorous standards in the industry. Not everyone can achieve and maintain an AAA NAID certification, but we do. It is your assurance that when you work with Bayaud, your confidential information remains confidential.
