From the Editor
The song may be over, but the melody
will linger on….
It has been my privilege to serve as
editor of the NAIDnews these past two
years. I hope this association journal
has been a useful tool in providing
insightful advice, news, and content to
you and your staff. As 2018 closes, so
do the issues of the NAIDnews.
For nearly 25 years this publication has
reached across borders and joined our
members. Now, as a larger association,
we will present to you a new journal
starting in 2019. One that will still bring
you relevant secure data destruction
content as well as include a wider net
of information governance material
as well, so that as you build your
businesses, you stay fully informed.
We will carry the spirit and melody of
the NAIDnews into the new journal to
create a harmony we are sure will be
music to your ears….
In this farewell overture, I believe
we have hit all the right notes. As is
tradition, this is the Annual Conference
edition! Hear directly from the
association’s Director of Events &
Programs Jamie Hughes on what NAID
2019 means to her, why you should join
this year’s golf tournament, who will be
providing innovation in the Expo Hall,
and more. It all starts on page 34.
We also dive into regulatory updates,
as Canada released new data breach
notification laws just last month.
These updates could affect you and
your clients and open the door for
conversations that can lead to sales.
Learn what your responsibility is and
what to do should a breach occur on
your watch as a third-party provider.
My personal favorite inclusion, because
it includes member insights, is the
article on page 24 regarding women
in the industry. Hear their take on
leadership in secure data destruction
and how they keep life and their
companies running. They are an
inspiration to women and men alike.
And truly making this issue the perfect
finale, we look at what NAID members
have built (page 12) … for this is the
bedrock that NAID will continue to
stand on as it moves forward with
Looking forward to the next song with
