In January 2015, Arrow Electronics’ Value Recovery business added its North American processing facilities to the company’s existing Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA) certification programme. Since then, ADISA has carried out eight audits at Arrow Value Recovery sites in EMEA and the USA, and all have passed without exception.
Founder of ADISA, Steve Mellings picks up the story, “Arrow has been very clear that its service offering is truly international, and the company’s approach to ADISA certification certainly shows the confidence of that approach. As part of their certification programme, we treat all their sites as a single entity—so if one site fails, the whole company fails meaning the pressure on the individual teams at Arrow is high.”
The ADISA Audit programme includes scheduled full audits and, more importantly, a series of completely unannounced audits that includes random forensic analysis of up to 10 different devices on each visit.
Scott Venhaus, Global Director of Compliance at Arrow adds, “Having ADISA certification as part of Arrow’s Value Recovery global compliance program demonstrates that we are serious about protecting data. Our global compliance program incorporates best practices of today’s leading industry standards, including ADISA, while creating a flexible platform that allows Arrow to keep pace with global change.”
