SSD Erasure Verification Added to NAID AAA Certification

Brooks Hoffman

The International Secure Information Governance & Management Association (i-SIGMA) Board of Directors has approved a recommendation to add Solid State Device (SSD) erasure to the media covered by NAID AAA Certification of Sanitization Operations. Electronics recycling and ITAD operations for years have been asking for solid state device (SSD) data destruction to be included within the scope of NAID certification, according to a recent announcement from the group. Technical challenges have prevented the move in the past. However, NAID has finally created an endorsement for SSD data destruction that certified companies can request. The SSD endorsement requires participating companies to show that their processes are effective in real time.
