NAID: National Association for Information Destruction

The NAID AAA Certification Program is a voluntary program for NAID member companies providing information destruction services. Through the program, NAID members will be audited for mobile and/or plant-based operations in paper or printed media, micromedia, computer hard drive destruction, and/or computer hard drive sanitization. Under this program, the certification application and associated fees cover only individual locations. If a NAID member operates in multiple locations, each location must pass the audit to be certified. NAID members who receive certification must specify the location certified in company literature when referencing the NAID certification program.

SSI holds four key NAID certifications:

  • Computer Hard Drive Sanitization
  • Hard Drive Destruction
  • Solid State Storage Device Data Destruction
  • Non-Paper Media (DVD/CD/Tape) Destruction
