Inchcape Fleet Solutions first to acquire ISO/IEC 27001 certification
ISO/IEC 27001 is the internationally recognised specification that supports businesses and organisations throughout the world to develop a "best-in-class" Information Security Management System (ISMS).
The certification verifies that Inchcape Fleet Solutions’ infrastructure and practices meet the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO's) stringent criteria for security capabilities and endorses its commitment to deliver managed and monitored security solutions based on the highest International standards.
Gary Woodcock, Finance and Business Intelligence director at Inchcape Fleet Solutions, commented: ‘IFS have developed a robust Information [email protected]@ Management System to ensure total confidence to our clients that their data is in safe hands. We are the only Government approved fleet management company for customers with enhanced security requirements. It is imperative to us and vital to our customers that we have independent verification that our processes are "best-in -class" and so we chose to become certified against the ISO/IEC 27001 framework.
'As evidenced by the relatively small number of UK businesses that have achieved the standard, ISO/IEC 27001 is a challenging standard to attain, however with the support of Red Island Consulting; we were able to adopt the ISO/IEC 27001 internal control framework, ensuring that the route to compliance and certification was effective and efficient.
'All of our clients and Government customers in particular will welcome this certification as it saves them time and effort in auditing us. Focus can then be placed on core activities and other fleet related strategies,' he added.
'As a Fleet Management Company we inevitably hold significant amounts of information about our clients and their drivers. Achieving this standard provides independent assurance that their information is being protected to the highest industry standards. Being the first UK fleet management company to attain this standard demonstrates the nature of Inchcape in constantly striving to offer our best customer service and to stay one step ahead of our competitors'.
