NAID installs new directors to board

Guardian Data Destruction President Glenn Laga takes a seat.

The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), based in Phoenix, has elected Glenn Laga, president and founder of South Hackensack, New Jersey, company Guardian Data Destruction, to a seat on the board of directors. He will serve a three-year term. 

“I am extremely honored to be elected as a director for such an important organization,” Laga says. “My experience in electronic data destruction and lengthy campaign that changed New Jersey law is just one example of my commitment to data destruction industry.”

This new legislation, PL 2015 c. 188, was signed in January to remove the state’s restriction on mobile hard drive shredding.
Laga says, “This new law has changed the security landscape for New Jersey corporations by reducing risk, maintain compliance and providing them with the most secure on-site data destruction services and ensure that businesses have the security and quality that is provided by NAID-certified members.” 

The official installation of the new board members took place at the NAID 2016 conference committee last week, where Laga was a keynote speaker, presenting on “The Future of E-Data Destruction Market.” NAID president Don Adriaansen of Titan Mobile Shredding, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, said that NAID’s success can be attributed to an active board of directors “who represent a healthy cross-section of the data destruction industry. “
