internationally recognised best practice framework for an information security management system. It helps us identify the risks to important information and implements the appropriate controls to help reduce the risk
REL successfully achieved accreditation to the ISO27001 Standard in September 2014.
27001 is an Information Security Management System which means that we manage Company and Customer Information effectively with extremely high levels of security. This Standard has been embraced throughout the Company and everyone is aware of its significance.
Recognised as one of the most rigorous international standards for system and physical security processes, the ISO27001 audit and certification process focuses on every aspect of the business, including physical infrastructure, site security and access management, personnel capabilities, communications and operations, legal compliance criteria, and back-up and disaster recovery/business continuity systems.
As REL manage excess and redundant IT and Storage equipment for our Customers, they are safe in the knowledge that theirs or their customers’ data and information will be secure at all times. Some of the changes REL have gone through on the road to accreditation have been significant, including a whole new physical security regime within the building, with access areas managed by coded system.
Our IT Security systems are protecting ours and our customers’ information, reducing the risk of any proprietary information ending up in the wrong hands. Complementing our other ISO Standards, 9001 and 14001, ISO27001 is a very significant Standard and shows our customers the commitment we have to managing their data and information in a secure manner which they should accept as standard.
