Smiths Detection Meets Customer Demand for ISO 27001

Del

Smiths Detection has gained ISO 27001 certification for its key Wiesbaden site. In the face of increasing data breaches, this clearly demonstrates compliance with the most rigorous data security standards and a commitment to keep customer data safe.

2017 was the worst year on record for reported data breaches with figures up over 24% on the previous year*. Such dramatic increases make it essential for businesses to intensify their efforts to mitigate these threats. “With customers including 45 Fortune 500 companies and five of the top six US banks, it is important to substantiate our adherence to critical information security standards,” explained Matt Clark, VP Technology & Product Development, Smiths Detection. “Data security is a pressing issue for all our customers and we are committed to providing the highest levels of protection.”

Internationally recognised and respected, ISO 27001 establishes a security framework and demands consistent implementation of controls and processes, along with adherence to a risk management programme which is a vital component of every ISMS. According to an IT Governance survey**, 76% of companies are regularly or occasionally asked to provide evidence of ISO 27001 certification – a strong indication of the growing importance of information security in this highly interconnected world.

Certification undoubtedly engenders confidence amongst customers, ensuring ongoing compliance and improvement via an obligatory annual review. “Customers can be confident that we will maintain confidentiality, integrity, availability and privacy when handling their data, not just today, but on a continuing basis,” added Matt Clark.

Smiths Detection achieved ISO 27001 certification following its’ first Information Security Management System (ISMS) audit in July this year. Plans are underway to roll out compliance across all its international production facilities. It is the first Division within the Smiths Group to gain this standard.
