Riello UPS Achieves ISO 27001 Accreditation
ISO 27001 is the only internationally-recognised standard for information security management. With businesses facing increased cybersecurity threats, not to mention the damaging consequences of any data breach, it is fast becoming one of the most sought-after endorsements in the world, with the number of certifications growing by 450% over the past decade.
To obtain the accolade, Riello UPS successfully completed a meticulous independent audit. The assessment demonstrated we have the necessary policies, procedures, and controls in place to protect and safely manage our data in all forms, both online and offline.
Achieving ISO 27001 also demonstrates compliance with important directives such as GDPR and NIS (Network and Information Systems) Regulations.
In addition to holding ISO 27001, Riello UPS was the first manufacturer of uninterruptible power supplies in the UK to achieve the international standards ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management), as well as the British Standard OHSAS 18001 for Occupational Health and Safety.
Riello UPS General Manager Leo Craig commented: “ISO 27001 is the gold standard for information security and our team have worked tirelessly to ensure we’ve achieved certification. The independent assessor even praised us for our preparedness, saying it was one of the best audits he’d ever undertaken.
“The accreditation provides extra assurance to our customers that we’ve got all the necessary processes in place to protect our – and in turn their – data from any harmful attacks or breaches.
“Whether it’s adopting internationally-recognised best practice like our numerous ISO accreditations, introducing industry-leading offers such as our extended 5-year warranty as standard on all UPS up to 3 kVA, or ensuring we have the country’s largest stockholding of UPS, everything we do is focused on going the extra mile for our customers.”
