Jaama underlines customers' information management security focus with ISO27001 accreditation
Leading fleet and asset management software company Jaama has successfully achieved ISO27001:2013 certification for its information security management.
Providing reassurance to clients and prospects that Jaama’s core Key2 software meets the most rigorous standard, ISO 27001:2013 is a stringent certification for information security controls and guarantees that controls and other forms of risk treatment are in place to prevent and defend against potential information security vulnerabilities.
The certification also ensures that the information security controls continue to meet requirements on an ongoing basis around the management of data including, for example, financial information, intellectual property, employee details and information entrusted to by third parties.
Amid increasing fines for personal data breaches, organisations must ensure compliance with legislative requirements, such as the UK Data Protection Act and provide confidence to customers that they have the ability to manage data.
Therefore, providing peace of mind to Key 2 users across the fleet and plant hire industries, the ISO 27001:2013 certification ensures Jaama’s approach to managing information security is effective and follows best practice.
Jaama’s ISO27001:2013 certification was awarded following a comprehensive audit process carried out by the UKAS accredited certification body Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification.
James Thresher, Jaama’s IT director, said: “We consider the safety and security of our customers’ data to be of the upmost importance and have always taken great care ensuring our policies and processes uphold this view.
“By achieving ISO27001:2013 certification, we can give our customers the assurance that their data is protected by an independently audited and certified best practice approach in the way we operate our business.”
Jaama managing director Martin Evans added: “The security measures that we have in place are invariably asked for in tender documents. Achieving ISO27001:2013 gives Jaama a straightforward way for responding to questions around information governance and a competitive advantage.
“Furthermore, we anticipate that gaining ISO27001:2013 will help protect Jaama’s reputation and demonstrates the credibility and trust that clients and prospects can have in the security of Key2.”
The numerous other benefits of ISO27001:2013 include:
- Supporting compliance with relevant laws and regulations
- Reducing the likelihood of facing prosecution and fines
- A reduction of third party scrutiny of information security requirements.
Since 2011, Jaama has also held ISO9001 certification for its quality management systems. The company’s process improvement quality system (PIQs) is designed to ensure its customer-focused approach is built on a quality platform across its various departments including research and development, implementation, customer service, sales and marketing.
