Avritek Provides NAID AAA Data Destruction

Clients using Avritek’s data destruction services satisfy their regulatory due diligence requirements in addition to validating and monitoring security.

Avritek, San Diego, has announced that it has earned NAID AAA Certification from the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), Phoenix.

NAID is the standards setting body for the information destruction industry. NAID AAA Certification verifies the qualifications of certified information destruction providers through a comprehensive scheduled and unannounced audit program, as well as by requiring strict security measures, such as access control, remote video monitoring and personnel background checks.

“We are thrilled to announce that we have received our NAID AAA Certification for data destruction,” says CEO Ed Pletner.

“Data security has always been at the forefront of our business, and this further exemplifies the type of standards we have put in place to ensure our clients’ information is handled with the utmost care,” he continues. “In today’s landscape an organization cannot afford to take any chances with whom and how their data-bearing devices are handled. Our rigorous process supports the needs of organizations who are obligated to meet the numerous laws and regulations requiring the protection of confidential information, such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley), PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standards) and FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act). By achieving NAID AAA Certification, we are proud to show how seriously we take our clients’ data destruction needs.”

NAID CEO Bob Johnson says, “NAID Certification is constructed to assess both the security of the services provider’s systems as well as their compliance with regulations. As a result, clients using Avritek’s data destruction services satisfy their regulatory due diligence requirements in addition to validating and monitoring security. In this regard, Avritek is providing more than peace of mind; they are literally helping the client meet their compliance requirements.”

Avritek provides business critical hardware life-cycle services, such as data destruction, reverse logistics, technology recycling and asset recovery.

Headquartered in San Diego, CA, Avritek services accounts throughout Southern California and nationwide.
