Ebbon-Dacs has achieved ISO 27001, to ensure it meets the data protection requirements of its clients.
The company sought compliance as it works with “many of the country’s major leasing companies, and handles huge volumes of client data and information".
The certificate lasts for three years, during which time regular 12-monthly expert reviews will take place, while Ebbon-Dacs carries out its own internal audits to validate the robustness of the system.
Ebbon-Dacs embarked on the ISO 27001 accreditation process around 18 months ago, via an internal project managed by chief information officer, Dave Minto, and head of programme management, Rob Belcher.
Minto said: “As a major supplier to the vehicle leasing and contract hire sector, it was absolutely essential that we demonstrate to the industry that we are fully adept in handling confidential client information and that the correct security protocols are in place
“Whilst we had good security management, procedures and systems in place, we wanted to put them to the test against the very highest ISO standards so we could identify any areas for improvement, as well as promoting our achievement to current and future clients.”
Belcher said: “To achieve this accreditation is industry recognition that we have met those standards and that our clients can be confident that their and their clients’ data is protected to the very highest possible levels and with the utmost security.”
