Secure Records Solutions is proud to announce that we have recently received our Privacy + Certification. This is in addition to the NAID AAA Certification that SRS has had since 2013. SRS is the only independent records management facility to maintain both the Privacy + and NAID AAA certifications within a 200-mile radius of our Thomasville, GA headquarters.

As some of our clients may not be familiar with the Privacy + certification, we tackle the seven most Frequently Asked Questions below.

What is the difference between Privacy + and NAID AAA?

Of course the heartbeat of the NAID AAA Certification is for secure data destruction, while PRISM Privacy+ certification is focused on secure records management

What are similarities between NAID AAA & PRISM Privacy +?

Both certifications are considered the highest certification possible for their respective functions. In addition, both are now under the iSIGMA umbrella following the merger of NAID with PRISM in 2018. In fact, Chief Problem Solver Christopher Jones recently completed his term as President of iSIGMA and remains on the board of directors. Also, both certifications are subject to unannounced audits at any time.

How does a company receive a Privacy + Certification?

SRS recently passed a stringent audit that reviewed 10 different areas of the business, including organization and management control, information security policy, human resources, vendor management, environmental controls, physical access controls, logical access controls, electronic access, and network security.

How can I find out what other vendors have certifications?

Currently, SRS is the only independent provider within a 200-mile radius of our Thomasville, GA service area to have both a NAID AAA and a Prism Privacy + certification.

Why does SRS need both the NAID AAA certification and the Prism Privacy + certification?

At SRS, our tagline is “always improving,” and we really mean it! SRS offers a full suite of services, ranging from shredding and storage to indexing and scanning. We want our clients to know that we have the industry’s highest certification for all our services offered.
