NAID-A/NZ calls for better data disposal

International Data Privacy Day sparks call for concerted approach

The National Association for Information Destruction Australia and New Zealand (NAID-A/NZ) has called for companies and individuals to be mindful of their discarded data.

The not-for-profit trade association for the secure information destruction industry has put the call out in recognition of International Data Privacy Day on January 28.

It said, in recent years, data theft had become one of the most prevalent crimes with billions of dollars being lost each year through credit card fraud, identity theft and scams.

NAID-A/NZ chairman, Paul Hurst, said people and organisations need to be as security conscious in the destruction of documents and records as they are in protecting them on their premises.

“Recent updates to the Australian Privacy Act has helped to highlight the legal implications and privacy responsibilities that companies and individuals have regarding the handling of sensitive information,” he added.

The only association of its kind recognised globally, NAID offers AAA certification for service providers requiring compliance to rigorous standards through employee background screening, training, access control, written policies and procedures and unannounced audits by third-party Certified Protection Professionals.

The local chapter of the association represents many of the largest document destruction companies in Australia and New Zealand.
