We can now offer customers the highest levels of protection against cyber threats with our recently awarded UKAS approved global standard for security and safety ISO 27001.
We have invested a significant amount of resources and funding to gain ISO 27001 - recognised internationally as a world class information security management system. We have also spent 18 months working on the accreditation which means customer data is now safeguarded from attack and makes us one of just a handful of dealers who hold this ISO rating.
Driven by our board here at Altodigital, this large-scale project will help address our own vulnerabilities, as well as protect our customers’ data. It was also implemented to prepare our business for the increasing worldwide reliance on the internet and future-proof against new technologies.
Martin Chamberlain SIRO, MIS Director at Altodigital, said the accreditation is great news for our existing and future clients, as well as the whole company.
“The ISO accreditation distinguishes us from other companies and means we have robust business continuity processes in place to ensure that assets are protected from destructive events and control measures are in place to ensure the loss of critical assets can be recovered in a controlled and safe manner.
“It is more than just a certificate or a badge this is really about going to the depths of our business and making sure we are credible. We have looked at all of our vulnerabilities and we have fixed them,” he added.
“In the face of ever improving technologies, greater use of the internet, and increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks, we believe we have safeguarded ourselves, and our customers, for the future.
“The client’s data has an extra level of protection due to the robust processes and systems we have in place and we can continue giving the best quality of service possible. It’s the highest level of operational service we can give,” said Mr Chamberlain.
“Data breaches are increasing faster than ever. We have smart technology in the office, at home, in cars, it’s everywhere. The whole world is moving towards that and we’re not going to stop. Companies need to have the accreditation. We have prepared for events should they arise,” he added.
The ISO rating is also key for manufacturers who partner with Altodigital.
“The accreditation means we are not only protecting our customer’s data, but also the products, the hardware that is used, so we are also protecting the brand name of our suppliers,” said Martin.
