Shred360 is extremely proud to boast a status that we believe no other secure shredding company (anywhere!) has yet accomplished. We are now proud to announce four new Certified Secure Document Destruction Specialists! John Anderson, Cam Caudle, Michael O’Hara and Ryan DuBose now join James Christie and Greg Shealy as Shred360 staffers that have attained CSDS status. Shred360 now boasts SIX employees that have attained this difficult accomplishment.

The National Association for Information Destruction launched the CSDS Accreditation Program (CAP) in 2010 to promote and acknowledge an indiviual’s competency in a range of subject areas related to the secure destruction of information and the secure destruction of other items. The CAP is separate and distinct from the NAID AAA Certification Program, which verifies  the ongoing compliance of an organization’s secure destruction services with established security and operational standards. NAID AAA Certification applies to an organization whereas CAP applies to an individual. Shred360 is also proud to be NAID AAA Certified.

‘Becoming a CSDS is a major achievement,’ says NAID CEO Bob Johnson. He adds, ‘While there are some industry professionals who have a grasp of one or another of these areas, it is a remarkable accomplishment to demonstrate expertise in all of them.’ The CSDS exam establishes an individual’s competency in seven subject areas, consisting of questions about data protection legislation, physical security, risk management, operations, and records management.

At the NAID Annual Business Meeting, held during the NAID 2015 Annual Conference last week, Treasurer Angie Singer Keating moved for the creation of a new standing committee to be responsible for the promotion and adoption of NAID AAA Certification, specifying within the motion that outgoing NAID Director John Anderson from Shred360 in Columbia, South Carolina, be named as its inaugural chair. The motion was seconded and approved by the membership.

According to NAID CEO Bob Johnson, creation of such a committee is long overdue.

“Back in the day, there was one NAID certification committee responsible for rulemaking, enforcement and promotion,” said Johnson. “When we separated rulemaking and enforcement by creating the Certification Review Board, promotion sort of fell by the wayside.”

Anderson is a well known advocate for NAID certification but has also championed inclusiveness and member choice.

“It is going to be our job to make NAID certification attractive to members and their customers,” said Anderson. “When we do our job correctly, most members will quickly migrate to certification, and our strength in numbers will remain. While NAID certification is an important factor, it is not the only measurable option offered to NAID members. Shred School graduates, Certified Secure Destruction Specialists (CSDS) and the custodial membership certification are all important spokes in our wheel. This collective program makes us a very strong NAID team.”
