FAQ

What does being NAID AAA Certified mean?

  • “The National Association for Information Destruction is a non-profit trade group of document destruction firms dedicated to upholding the highest professional and ethical standards in the shredding industry.” This non-profit group conducts audits on our company to make sure we are following the appropriate processes and regulations. Some of the security specifications that NAID auditors verify are:
  1. Persons with a known history of related-crimes are not employed
  2. Security and operations policies and procedures are written and followed
  3. Destruction equipment is functioning properly
  4. Access to materials is restricted at all times
  5. Containers and vehicles protect information from unauthorized access at all times during transport and processing
  6. There is an audit trail, including CCTV image capture and retention, and a thorough documented chain of custody.

 

What is the difference between being a NAID Member and being AAA Certified?

  • NAID Members have to pay a fee while companies that are AAA certified are carefully screened and audited to make sure that they have the highest levels of security in place.

 

Do your employees undergo background checks?

  • Yes. All of our employees undergo routine background checks and drug tests.

 

Are you audited?

  • Yes. We are a AAA Certified company, which means that we undergo audits, and ‘surprise’ audits , to make sure that we have the highest levels of security in place for our clients.

 

How do we prepare for an onsite document shredding service?

  • There is no extra work that your company needs to do. Our uniformed and insured security personnel place secure containers for the placement of documents, and there is no need to remove staples, binder clips, covers, or paper clips before placing the documents into the containers.

 

What is HIPAA?

  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act significantly increases data protection liabilities for all health-related organizations. It requires any breach of confidentiality, such as improperly discarded documents or computers, must now be reported to authorities, patients, and if the breach involves more than 500 records, to local media outlets. HIPAA requires the disposal of paper records, memos, notes, and forms that put healthcare information at risk. Using a professional disposal service like J.W. Records Management encourages employee compliance, is more secure, and is less expensive than shredding the material with an office shredder.

 

What is FACTA?

  • The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act is designed to reduce the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft created by improper disposal of customer information. It applies to virtually every person or business in the United States and requires the destruction of all consumer information before it is discarded. It has potentially severe penalties to violators. Contracting with an NAID Member, such as J.W. Records Management, to shred all discarded consumer information is the best way to comply with FACTA.
