The Li Tong Group in Hong Kong is the first IT asset management firm in Asia to earn the NAID AAA Certification for Sanitation Operations, according to a press statement by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) based in Phoenix, AZ, the US.
The press statement by this non-profit certification provider said this means that the Li Tong Group's capability to meet regulatory requirements for third-party IT asset management and computer recycling services providers has been validated.
It also noted that the recently amended Hong Kong Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (PDPO) holds data controllers responsible for the compliance of third parties and has issued new regulations with regard to outsourcing.
There are today 1000 NAID-certified operations in the US, Canada, South Africa and Australia, according to the statement.
