Maxxum Receives NAID® AAA Certification for Information Destruction Operations

December 11, 2013

Organizations who work with a NAID AAA Certified vendor have peace of mind knowing that all of their information destruction legal requirements are satisfied

RUSH CITY, MN – Maxxum Inc., a leading Midwest IT asset disposal solutions provider, has received NAID® AAA Certification for the company’s  asset disposal operations. The NAID (National Association for Information Destruction, Inc.) AAA Certification Program establishes standards for a secure information destruction process, including such areas as operational security, employee hiring and screening, responsible disposal and insurance.

Most developed nations have information protection laws and regulations that require written information protection procedures – including a written process for selecting a qualified and reputable data destruction vendor. Specifying a NAID AAA Certified information destruction vendor necessarily establishes that criteria, effectively satisfying that legal requirement. Where regulations require ongoing verification of vendor compliance, NAID AAA Certification satisfies that requirement too. Choosing to work with a non-NAID AAA Certified information destruction provider requires the organization to develop some other written and verifiable criteria from scratch.

“It’s not enough to simply obey government regulations – organizations have to prove compliance, which is the Achilles heel of most company’s data destruction, IT disposal, and recycling plans. Maxxum works with corporations, educational organizations, and governmental entities to provide customized data sanitization and IT asset disposal services in accordance with NAID AAA certification. Maxxum assures clients remain fully compliant with all laws and regulations, and provide them with the information to prove compliance.”

NAID AAA Certified service providers subject themselves to intense scrutiny and system verification because they are committed to their customers’ peace of mind. An organization that makes a single mistake in disposing of its PC’s and other electronic assets can easily cost millions of dollars in legal fees, penalties, and lost business, as well as severely tarnish the reputation of the organization. As a NAID AAA Certified service provider, Maxxum tailors hassle-free IT life-cycle management programs that maximize return-on-investment and minimizes cost, and indemnifies the company’s clients against liability.
