Secure paper shredding requires more than periodic in-house shredding actions to meet compliancy regulations. That is why companies and organizations trust ARMS, Inc., to destroy the right documents at the right time, supported by a certificate of destruction from a NAID AAA certified partner.
The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is the international trade association for companies that provide information destruction services. Customers of NAID-certified companies can rest assured its paper shredding partner’s employees have passed rigorous background checks and are qualified to handle and destroy sensitive documents.
“Improper records disposal can create a privacy breach as easily as not disposing of records at all or holding onto them too long,” said Eric Haas, president and CEO at ARMS, a leading paper shredding and paperless office consultant based in Green Bay. “The primary reason businesses partner with us is to ensure their records are managed correctly and paper shredding conducted in a timely and secure fashion.”
ARMS offers secure on-site bins and its own mobile shredding trucks to provide a higher level of security than recycling or in-house paper shredding can accomplish. ARMS works with its customers to establish best practice guidelines that remove significant exposure risks.
Certificates of Destruction for Paper Shredding Are Important
NAID-certified companies present their clients with a certificate of destruction after documents have been shredded, or digital files or hardware has been destroyed. This provides physical evidence that the destruction actually occurred and on the date noted.
“Certificates of destruction become part of your company’s recordkeeping, proving you are taking steps to remain compliant with your confidential information,” Haas said. “It also proves your document destruction partner can be held accountable for its service.”
