The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is the international trade association for companies providing information destruction services. NAID's mission is to promote the information destruction industry and establish standards and ethics for its member companies.
NAID Certification was established because potential customers for shredding services were confused and concerned. Customers were trying to be conscientious, but didn't know what questions to ask. They essentially ended up taking a leap of faith when selecting a shredding contractor. What is more troubling is that a few document shredding companies were taking advantage of the situation by misrepresenting their security. NAID Certification takes the guesswork out of document shredding for the customer.
To achieve certification, Shred-N-Go, Inc. is audited on 18 key aspects of its processes, stability, policies and procedures. A professional, third-party investigative service is contracted to perform the audits on behalf of NAID. Shred-N-Go, Inc. is audited on an annual basis, along with unannounced inspections to increase the effectiveness and integrity of NAID Certification.
Shred-N-Go, Inc. has worked diligently to achieve and maintain the highest level of certification from NAID. We are very proud to be NAID Certified for on-site mobile paper destruction since 2003, and on-site mobile hard drive destruction since 2011.
