Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
In Confidence P/L of North Melbourne, Australia has earned the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) AAA Certification for demonstrating compliance with operational and security specifications.
“Organizations in Victoria are very fortunate to have a company that takes their responsibility to destroy discarded sensitive information so seriously,” said NAID CEO Bob Johnson. “According to the Australian Privacy Law, organizations have a responsibility to make sure destruction services can adequately protect personal information. In Confidence P/L has made fulfilling that responsibility much easier through their certification achievement.”
The NAID AAA Certification is awarded to companies that successfully complete an intense security audit conducted by an accredited security professional. To maintain the certification, In Confidence P/L will be subject to random audits as well as routine scheduled audits.
“We learned many years ago that frequent unannounced audits dramatically enhanced compliance,” said Johnson. “They have to know an audit can come at any time, even if they recently had one.”
In Confidence P/L joins Endeavour Foundation in Queensland, Green Team Shred-Safe in southern Australia, ShredLock Australia PTY Ltd in New South Wales and The Secure Document Destruction Company in New South Wales that have already earned NAID AAA Certification in Australia.
