Our rigorous process supports the needs of organizations who are obligated to meet the numerous laws and regulations requiring the protection of confidential information such as HIPAA, SOX, PCI, and FACTA. By achieving NAID AAA Certification we are proud to show how seriously we take our clients’ data destruction needs.”
