The File Room is also subject to Unannounced Audits:
Random audits are performed to verify that confidential materials are protected. Unannounced audits are conducted by a trained CPP at the secure destruction facility and/or in the field. These are performed in order to maintain the highest level of security by NAID certified information destruction companies.
