Astec have successfully completed certification to ISO 27001:2013, demonstrating our commitment to best-practice information security processes. As the risk of cyber attacks increase for ourselves and our customers, having an information security management system certified and externally audited to ISO 27001:2013 is paramount to mitigate the threat. As the level of integration between systems and equipment in the IT and OT space accelerates to drive digital transformation, being able to implement best practices in security and information management is extremely important for our customers.
Managing director Andy Tripp commented, “Achieving ISO 27001:2103 certification underlines the robustness of our information security management, adding a level of compliance, process and procedure which demonstrates how seriously we take our responsibilities with our data and systems and those of our customers. I’m extremely proud of the hard work of the team in achieving this accreditation.”
Established by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organisation.
