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.

Greene Tweed Receives Patent for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomers and Molded Articles23.10.2018 21:00Pressemelding

The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Greene Tweed Patent Number 10,011,690 for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomer Compositions and Molded Articles. The innovative elastomer technology was developed by a team that included inventor Ron Campbell, PhD, Principal Scientist and Technology Leader for Elastomers in Greene Tweed’s Advanced Technology Group, to provide a competitive advantage in the Energy market and expand technology protected under a previous patent. Rapid gas decompression (RGD) often occurs when high-pressure gas molecules migrate into an elastomer at a compressed state. When the pressure surrounding the elastomer is suddenly released, the compressed gas inside the elastomer tries to expand and exit the elastomer, thus causing RGD (also known as explosive decompression). Most elastomers experience severe blistering or cracking when the force of these expanding gases overcome the strength of the surrounding material; however, materials engineered to withstand RG

Morinaga Milk Study Suggests Infant-Type Human-Residential Bifidobacteria May Benefit Infant Health by Improving Digestion of Peptides in Milk and Grains23.10.2018 18:00Pressemelding

Scientists at Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264) have long theorized that Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) are superior to non-Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (non-HRB) in promoting good health outcomes. The results of a new study strengthen the evidence for this theory, showing that infant-type HRB may be able to break down incompletely digested peptides in the infants’ gastrointestinal systems and thus contribute to their overall health.

myPOS Founder Christo Georgiev Announces Two Upcoming myPOS Stores in Barcelona and Paris23.10.2018 16:22Pressemelding

Christo Georgiev, fintech entrepreneur and founder of myPOS, has confirmed his intention to open two new flagship stores in major European cities by the end of the year. The opening is part of an initiative to bring the product closer to potential customers, giving them a hands-on experience and a live demonstration of what myPOS has to offer. The two new stores will be opened in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France – two of the most important markets for myPOS. “Our Spanish and French customers have always placed a tremendous amount of trust in us, and we in turn have worked hard to justify it,” Georgiev says. “Opening physical locations in Barcelona and Paris is an extension of that relationship. It’s important to test a product with your own hands before you choose to trust it, and if that’s true for TVs and phones why can’t it apply to POS terminals?” The Barcelona store will open as soon as November, followed shortly by the Paris one before the end of the year. myPOS has already ope
