The ITAD Works Awarded ISO27001 Certification

The ITAD Works Awarded Latest ISO Certification

Leading asset disposition and IT lifecycle management specialist certified for information security controls to protect internal and client data

7th January 2016 – The ITAD Works Limited the industry leading specialist in the management of hardware change and IT asset disposition, today announced that it has been awarded International Standard Organisation (ISO) 27001 Certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI). This is the latest accreditation to be gained by the company in addition to (ISO) 9001, (ISO) 14001, e-Stewards, ADISA, Cyber Essentials and CPNI (for the destruction of sensitive information for both mobile and facility-based services.)

Achieving the ISO 27001 standard certifies that The ITAD Works has the requisite information security controls in place to protect client data. The certification is awarded only to those companies that can meet the standard as judged by an independent, accredited team of auditors.

Robin Gue, Chairman of The ITAD Works, said: “We recognise that the ability to prevent security breaches and protect data from being compromised is of utmost importance to our clients. As more firms look externally to companies like The ITAD Works to provide managed data services, we continue to thoroughly identify and address data security risks to meet our clients’ information security needs on an ongoing basis.”

Due to the expanding scope and volume of regulations, the way firms consume data and engage with their data providers is evolving, with new requirements for enhanced levels of flexibility and efficiency in their data management processes. The ITAD Works offers the highest provision of data security coupled with robust audit controls, ensuring that the data businesses rely on for their risk management and regulatory reporting is of the highest quality.   

The ISO 27001:2013 was certified by the British Standards Institution (BSI) and the process required The ITAD Works to:

  • Thoroughly evaluate its own information security risks, including the impact of identified threats and vulnerabilities
  • Design and implement a comprehensive set of information security controls and other risk management measures to address security risks within its own data security infrastructure as well as its corporate environment
  • Implement an overarching program to ensure that the information security controls meet the information security needs for both The ITAD Works and its customers on an ongoing basis
