How to choose the right shredding company for your business?

  • The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is responsible for setting industry standards. Any company not certified is failing to meet the requirements and is putting your documents and records at risk.

  • End-to-end documentation of the destruction process isn’t just paperwork. It is risk-mitigation strategy that helps you deal with potential audits and other legal issues.
