Anyone is free to buy an old, used, shred truck that a professional shred company is retiring and then claim that they offer “secure shredding”. These sorts of “amateurs” usually have no online reviews from thrilled customers on Google, and they may be asking you to sacrifice your security in order to save a few bucks.
Their message is the same, they assert that if you can watch the paper be shred, why does anything else matter. At times, these companies even lie and are dishonest and claim that they are NAID AAA Certified, or that they basically do everything to be certified, but just haven’t gotten the “actual certification”. These sorts of entry level, hobbyist shred companies claim that NAID AAA Certification is just a piece of paper, and they are secure…no matter what…because they say so.
We are not only NAID AAA Certified, since 2010, but the President of Shred Northwest is the “immediate past president” of iSIGMA’s global Board of Directors, and was recognized as both a 2015 NAID Member Of The Year and the 2016 NAID Member of the Year. Brock’s service on the NAID-Complaint Resolution Council has helped him see the shortcuts companies try to take, and this service helps Shred Northwest to operate at the highest standards. Having also served on the CSDS Board of Regents for NAID, Brock’s service has helped bring forth the industry’s first textbook on Information Destruction principles.
Certification Expires: 11/30/2022
