Let’s find out more about what NAID AAA Certification Means

The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is a nationally recognized trade organization that sets the standards and best practices for the safe destruction of private data. Shredding companies who want to be AAA NAID Certified must go through a rigorous verification process along with ongoing audits to ensure that they follow all current state and federal information security rules and regulations.  This certification means that the shredding firm you have chosen is in compliance and that your documents are safe during the entire process.

How Does Secure Document Destruction Work?

A company like FileShred comes to your Connecticut location with a shredding truck, places the documents you have identified that you want to be destroyed in a security container on wheels.  The container is locked to protect your papers s they immediately rolled to the truck and destroyed. The industrial shredders we use have crosscutting shredding technology to turn your private documents into small bits that can never read again or be reassembled. You are welcome to come out to the mobile shredding truck to watch the procedure for additional peace of mind.

Three advantages of on-site shredding:

Immediate Destruction – With on-site destruction, you can be assured that your papers will be reduced to little, ragged bits of paper within minutes of the security container being emptied into the shredder.

Witness the destruction process – You may see your documents being moved to the mobile shred unit, raised into a protective tunnel, emptied into the shredder, and cut into tiny bits if you like. Shredding companies like AAA Certified FileShred make sure the chain of custody is never broken from the time you release the documents to us until they are completely destroyed.  

Single-Step Shredding – With mobile, on-site shredding, papers are removed from your home or office and shredded instantly, before the shredding truck leaves your area. The procedure is straightforward, which reduces the likelihood of errors.
