“Do they utilize a NAID-certified shredding company?”
At Microtek, we work with NAID-certified companies to ensure our clients that their documents will be shredded properly and they can rest assure that no one, other than a Microtek employee, will be handling their documents until document destruction.
What does it mean to be NAID-certified? It’s a certified program established by the National Association of Information Destruction that requires secure and proper document destruction to where it’s physically impossible for anyone to retrieve the documents and piece them back together. By working exclusively with NAID-certified shredders, our clients are left with a sense of ease knowing that no one will be able to retrieve that information.
Unfortunately, avoidable accidents do happen when using non-certified shredders. This happened recently with the Nassau County, N.Y., police department. Their documents, which were shredded horizontally instead of vertically, were used as confetti at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, allowing patrons to read full lines of secure information. These are the kinds of accidents that Microtek strives to avoid and oversee every step of the destruction process.
When researching a reliable and trustworthy imaging company, it’s wise to stay away from companies that don’t utilize a NAID-certified company. This allows for the possibility of someone to retrieve secured documents and steal important information, such as the case of the Nassau police department.
At Microtek, we would never allow that to happen and we take all security measures to prevent avoidable document disasters. Call us today to learn more!
