Guardian Data becomes certified for hard drive destruction

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – In June, Guardian Data Destruction, Inc. became certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) for computer hard drive sanitization and physical destruction.

“To support our continued growth with our full suite of onsite data destruction services it is imperative that we provide the client with a secure and standardized process so the experience is to the same service standard at any of their sites in the U.S.,” said Glenn Laga of Guardian Data Destruction. “Becoming NAID certified provides our clients with a third party, industry recognition that GDD meets NAID’s security procedures and validates to the client that GDD will execute a standard process at any of their location in the U.S.”

Guardian Data Destruction is a secure information destruction company based in Long Island City, N.Y. with locations in Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles and Seattle. They specialize in onsite data erasure or destruction, asset logistics, site decommissioning and asset disposition. By becoming NAID certified, Guardian Data Destruction can demonstrate its compliance with operational and security specifications.

The NAID AAA Certification is awarded to companies that successfully complete an intense security audit conducted by an accredited security professional. To maintain the certification, Guardian Data Destruction will be subject to random unannounced audits as well as routine scheduled audits.

“It is reaffirming to me that the NAID AAA Certification Program is a solid program when we see companies earning their certifications for the first time,” said NAID Chief Compliance Officer Holly Vandervort.
