STI has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification – the most widely recognised international standard outlining best practices for information security management systems.
The ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that STI has met rigorous international standards in ensuring the security and integrity of our information. The certification was validated by Lloyds Register, an external auditor, after a rigorous assessment of our ISMS over 10 days.
Jon Smith, Head of IT, said; “Although typically these projects start within IT because a lot of the controls to reduce risk are technical, this project spanned all of the departments within our Hook site. The standard covers a lot of controls around networking, asset management, software development and access control to information. However, it also covers controls around HR and staff management, contracts, classification of data, physical security, maintenance of equipment, supply chain risks and intellectual property, and therefore required strong representation from HR, Facilities, Procurement and CDM.”
Simon Best, Managing Director, said “we are delighted by the addition of this accreditation to strengthen our offering to our customers, and it further demonstrates our leading position in the electronics marketplace. This will be continued across all our operations over time allowing us to enter some new markets where this accreditation is mandatory. A lot of work has gone in to achieving this result, well done to all involved”.
