Riello UPS, the award-winning manufacturer of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and standby power systems, has obtained ISO 27001 certification.
The accolade, which was awarded following the successful completion of a meticulous independent audit, proves the Wrexham-based power protection company’s commitment to data security best practice.
ISO 27001 is the only internationally-recognised standard for information security management. With businesses facing increased cybersecurity threats, not to mention the damaging consequences of any data breach, it is fast becoming one of the most sought-after endorsements in the world, with the number of certifications growing by 450% over the past decade.
To secure the accreditation, Riello UPS had to prove it has the necessary policies, procedures, and controls in place to protect and safely manage its data in all forms, both online and offline. Achieving ISO 27001 also demonstrates compliance with important directives such as GDPR and NIS (Network and Information Systems) Regulations.
Earning ISO 27001 follows on from Riello UPS being the first uninterruptible power supply manufacturer in the UK to be accredited with the international standards ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management), along with the British Standard OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety).
Leo Craig, General Manager of Riello UPS, which is headquartered from Wrexham Industrial Estate, commented:
“ISO 27001 is the gold standard for information security and our team have worked tirelessly to ensure we’ve achieved certification. The independent assessor even praised us for our preparedness, saying it was one of the best audits he’d ever undertaken.
“The accreditation provides extra assurance to our customers that we’ve got all the necessary processes in place to protect our – and in turn their – data from any harmful attacks or breaches.
“Whether it’s adopting internationally-recognised best practice like our numerous ISO accreditations, introducing industry-leading offers such as our extended 5-year warranty as standard on all UPS up to 3 kVA, or ensuring we have the country’s largest stockholding of UPS, everything we do is focused on going the extra mile for our customers.”
