ERI, a recycler of electronic waste and a large cybersecurity focused hardware destruction company, has successfully achieved AAA certification for data destruction from the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) for its facilities in California, Indiana and Massachusetts.
ERI’s goal is to have all of its locations NAID certified by January of next year.
NAID is an international professional organization that sets the industry standards for responsible data destruction. Its certification program was created through the combined efforts of the industry’s leading information security professionals. Its standards and practices are recognized globally.
“We are extremely proud to have received AAA certification from NAID for three of our operations,” said John S. Shegerian, chairman and chief executive officer of ERI.
Shegerian noted that data security has always been a priority at ERI and the NAIDA AAA certification that all ERI locations are presently undergoing, starting with the flagship Fresno location, is the third certification system achieved and an effective way of demonstrating that longstanding commitment.
