When searching for a shredding provider in the Moultrie, GA area, we always suggest going with a NAID AAA certified provider.
Why? Here are the top five reasons Moultrie businesses should choose a NAID AAA certified shredding company.
NAID does the work for you.
As a business, you need to ensure that you’re partnering with a company who will treat your sensitive documents as carefully as it would treat its own. When you work with a NAID AAA company, NAID does the work for you to ensure compliance. NAID certification auditors verify that protocols are in place to handle confidential material throughout all stages of the destruction process including handling, transporting, storing materials prior to destruction, and destroying and disposing of materials responsibly. This also includes any transfer of custody scenarios. To achieve the NAID AAA certification, companies are subject to surprise audits and a host of other regulatory restraints, ranging from the size of shredded paper to the time that shredding must be completed once it arrives at a facility.
A NAID AAA certification meets or exceeds the most stringent regulatory requirements.
Regulatory requirements for destruction of confidential material vary from industry to industry. There are different requirements from HIPAA, FACTA, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. A NAID AAA Certified shredding partner meets or exceeds all of the requirements made by many healthcare agencies, government agencies, and other regulatory bodies.
Their work is guaranteed.
NAID AAA companies follow chain of custody rules and will provide you with a certificate of destruction after your files are shredded. These certificates of destruction help protect your company in the event of legal action or an audit.
It’s good for the environment.
If you use a desktop shredder and attempt to recycle the shredded pieces, it will actually end up in the landfill. Due to the process used, most recycling centers are unable to accept small strips or bits of paper due to the process used. If you find a NAID AAA certified company that also recycles like SRS, then those small, illegible particles produced by the industrial shredder are then bundled and transferred to a paper mill for recycling. So instead of sending paper bits to a landfill, choose a secure option that saves nearly 6 square feet of landfill space!
It will save you time and, ultimately, money.
A regularly scheduled shredding service can save you lots of time, help with office organization, make your employees more efficient, and reduce the likelihood of a data breach because of the high standards of NAID AAA certified shredding providers. And at less than the cost of one cup of coffee per day, it will ultimately save your business money.
