Synetic Technologies, Inc. (Synetic), an industry leader in secure IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) and value recovery services, has received AAA Certification by the National Association for Information Destruction(NAID). The company has been awarded NAID AAA certification for both mobile and plant-based electronic data destruction.
NAID is the standards-setting body for the information destruction industry. Its certification program was developed by information security professionals and is recognized by thousands of private and governmental organizations globally. NAID verifies a certified provider’s qualifications through a comprehensive series of scheduled and unannounced audits.
NAID AAA Certification verifies that protocols are in place to ensure the security of confidential material through all stages of the destruction process, including transfer of custody, handling, transporting, storing, destroying, and disposing of data-bearing materials responsibly. The certification process is designed to ensure global enterprises adhere to the numerous laws and regulations put in place to protect PII and confidential data, including PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, FACTA, GLBA, NERC, FISMA, and Sarbanes-Oxley.
Ron Helmer, CEO of Synetic, said, “Synetic is very proud to be honored with AAA Certification by NAID. We have been a member of NAID for years and have aligned our operational protocols with NAID’s high standards from the beginning.
