As one of the UK’s leading vehicle tracking and recovery providers, Global Telemetrics is in receipt of a huge amount of data and personal information. Protecting this information and handling it sensitively is of paramount importance to both the business and its customers, which is why the company has recently gained the highest possible certification in information security, ISO 27701.
An industry & UK first
Global Telemetrics is the very first vehicle tracking company to achieve this UK governmental UKAS certification and is also the first company in the whole of the UK (of any industry) to achieve this standard of information management systems.
ISO 27701 is a privacy extension to ISO 27001 – which Global Telemetrics also gained certification for in 2019. The goal of ISO 27701 is to enhance the existing information security management system with additional requirements in order to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve a Privacy Information Management System – in short, this is an accreditation that means Global Telemetrics has achieved the highest possible standard in data protection and security, something that its customers can take great peace of mind from knowing.
As if this wasn’t enough, Global Telemetrics also boasts the ISO 9001:2015 certification, thought of as the world’s most recognised standard in quality management systems.
Gavin Hennessy, Operations Manager at Global Telemetrics explains why these accreditations are so important. He said: “Data protection is so important, especially in this highly digitalised and post-GDPR world. Our role as vehicle security experts means we receive a huge amount of information about our customers and their vehicle’s movements. It is imperative that we protect this information, and control and process it in the correct way. The latest accreditations that we have proudly achieved will provide both new and existing customers with the assurance that we have gone above and beyond to protect data, and this will also give us a vital edge over our competitors.”
