Board Approves CSDS Mentoring Program

April 9, 2020

The i-SIGMA Board of Directors has approved a recommendation from the CSDS Board of Regents to create a mentoring program for those interested in earning their Certified Secure Destruction Specialist (CSDS®) accreditation.

According to Michael Payton of Augusta Data Storage, Inc., who is Chairman of the CSDS Board of Regents and an i-SIGMA Board Director, the mentoring program will make earning the CSDS less intimidating.

 “It’s understandable that some industry professionals would be leery of taking on such an intense challenge,” said Payton. “We believe pairing prospective CSDS candidates with others who have already done so will not only ease their concerns, but help them see the value.”
