NAID Certified Hard Drive Destruction


NAID Certified Hard Drive Destruction

Our on-site digital media and data destruction services are certified by two renowned industry leaders in data destruction: the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) and i-Sigma. These organizations act as independent auditors—regulating data destruction companies like ours to ensure our processes, machinery, and employees meet stringent background checks.

Our on-site destruction services allow you to witness our processes. We’ll then provide you with our Certificate of Destruction—certifying that all data and sensitive information were destroyed following NAID’s guidelines. Lastly, we’ll remove the equipment for shipping and recycling from your location.

You can rely on our technicians for a secure experience. Our NAID certification mandates that our technicians undergo comprehensive background checks. Each E-Waste Security technician is screened for employment history, criminal records, substance abuse, and driving records. Furthermore, NAID requires all technicians to undergo extensive security training.

By-the-Book Policies and Procedures

E-Waste Security’s policies and procedures are designed to conform with NAID standards, such as access restrictions, digital media tracking, equipment tracking, breach notifications, and response plans. Additionally, our processes have been reviewed and thoroughly audited by a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) from the American Society of Industrial Security.
