Certified Secure Destruction Specialists

Royal Document Destruction Employs Certified Secure Destruction Specialists (CSDS) To Directly Benefit Customers

Royal Document Destruction’s John Daly and Rob Grubaugh are both Certified Secure Destruction Specialists (CSDS), the highest individual certification awarded thru NAID -  the National Association for Information Destruction. The CSDS is the highest accreditation a professional in our industry can obtain, and requires passing a rigorous exam regarding the entire destruction industry, as well as ongoing training and educational requirements. 

The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), the governing body of the shredding industry, created the CSDS accreditation to promote and acknowledge an in-depth, comprehensive understanding of all aspects of secure destruction.  Professionals who have achieved CSDS rating are considered experts in the field and are better qualified to pass on to their customers an in-depth understanding of the ever-changing rules and regulations that apply to the shredding industry, as well as better advise the businesses who must follow these laws.

The level of knowledge that CSDS specialists have about the industry directly benefits the customers who work with these professionals.  This comprehensive certification means that John and Rob both have expert advice to give to our customers in regards to:

  • Data protection legislation

  • Secure destruction operations

  • Physical security principles

  • Records management principles

  • Risk management principles

  • Ethics and more

Certified

We are proud of the hard work that John Daly and Rob Grubaugh completed to achieve this important and distinct accreditation, and the intrinsic value that it brings to our customers. 

NAID also oversees the professional AAA NAID certification program for shred companies.  AAA certification by our governing body ensures best industry practices by shred companies who maintain it. This rigorous certification process includes an exhaustive, independent audit of virtually every aspect of the shred process and business, and must be renewed yearly.

Royal Document Destruction is proud to have been the first shredding company in Ohio to achieve AAA certification, and has remained certified since that time.
