Eventually, all the electronics in your office or business will reach their end-of-life. When that happens, you need to know the risks posed by data on hard drives, solid-state devices, and in the non-volatile memory of many electronics.
Whether it is a computer, phone, or even a printer, tossing the device into the trash could be a gift to data thieves, identity scammers, and corporate spies. Often, it takes as little as 15 minutes for an experienced crook to access sensitive information from discarded devices.
Your best move is to recycle your electronics with a NAID AAA Certified partner.
Recycling saves the environment. NAID AAA Members securely destroy your data, assuring your compliance with privacy laws such as HIPAA, GLBA, and FACTA.
NAID is the standard-setting body advocating for best practices in secure data destruction. Today, more than 1,000 NAID AAA Certified providers operate on 5 continents. Protec Recycling in Homewood, Alabama is proud to be one.
At Protec, our NAID AAA Certification applies to paper shredding as well as electronic data destruction. We are a full-service electronics, paper, and X-Ray recycler.
NAID’s AAA certification program is comprehensive and includes tests and requirements for procedures used in data destruction. Each NAID AAA certified recycler must annually meet these requirements, as well as successfully pass planned and unannounced audits throughout the year.
NAID Auditors review employee background screening and training, compliance with written procedures, operational security, confidentiality agreements, and maintenance of destruction equipment.
When you choose Protec as your electronics recycling partner, you gain the benefits of our “zero landfill” approach to recycling and the security of our professional data destruction operations.
