Certified Secure Destruction Specialist Accreditation
The National Association for Information Destruction® (NAID®) launched the Certified Secure Destruction Specialist® Accreditation Program (CSDS®) for industry professionals to ensure competency in areas related to secure destruction.
Don Adriaansen, MBA, Partner/Co-Founder, holds the CSDS accreditation at TITAN.
The CSDS applies to individuals and is separate and distinct from the NAID AAA Certification Program, which verifies and acknowledges the ongoing compliance of an organization’s secure destruction services with established security and operational standards.
Individuals must demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the secure destruction industry to achieve the CSDS Accreditation.
Areas of competency include:
- Data protection legislation
- Secure destruction operations
- Physical security principles
- Records management principles
- Risk management principles
- Ethics and the NAID Complaint Resolution Process
- NAID AAA Certification
Be sure to ask your prospective shredding service provider if they are both NAID AAA Certified AND have a CSDS on Staff to help your organization comply with all laws and regulations.
