Why I’m a
By Colin Scott, CSDS
It was just over a year ago. I remember it clearly.
On April 7th, 2016, at 8:00 AM I walked into a
small conference room inside the Renaissance
Orlando Hotel at Sea World. I was not there to
see Shamu or the Shark Encounter, I was there
to accomplish one goal: to become a Certified
Secure Destruction Specialist® (CSDS).
Eight years ago, I accepted the position of
an Account Executive for Reclamere Inc., a
Data Security Company located in Tyrone,
Pennsylvania. My job was to find new business,
grow current relationships, and gain the trust of
our clients to handle the security of their most
important asset: their data. This quickly became
more than part of my job, it became a passion.
