• Kyocera awarded ISO 27001 for data security and risk management

        • Kyocera Document Solutions UK has again been accredited with ISO 27001 certification, recognising its commitment to the highest standards of information security management across the business. Carried out by DAS Certification, Kyocera has also received approval to add its company MCL to this year’s accreditation.

          ISO 27001 is an international standard that ensures organisations have established a framework of business and IT processes to identify, manage and reduce risks. Achieving certification requires organisations to maintain a rigorous information security management system (ISMS) that is compliant to 114 different requirements. These include internal audits, continual improvement, and corrective and preventative action. It is the only information security management system standard that can be independently certified to cover people, process and technology.

          Andrie Muchtar, European Information Security Officer at Kyocera Document Solutions Europe said, “passing this latest audit and is a major milestone for the business. It gives our existing and future customers, as well as other stakeholders, further assurance and peace of mind that we are looking after their data responsibly. The accreditation has been a key reason why we have been able to build a high degree of trust and confidence amongst our channel partners that all information we process is protected to the highest possible standards.” 

          A tougher regulatory regime ushered in by GDPR has sharpened organisations’ focus on the importance of data security and risk management. As headlines on corporate data breaches hit the front pages, the potential risks for businesses of all sizes that do not secure their data are significant. Business leaders are becoming increasingly aware of this, with research suggesting that 52 per cent of enterprises across Europe now see information security as a top priority. 

          Andrie added, “in the current data security climate, accreditations such as ISO 27001 are more important than ever. Once an organisation has met a standard, it is just as important to maintain it. Companies that can demonstrate that they are continuously achieving the highest internationally recognised standards will be in a prime position to take advantage.” 

          In addition to this passing the latest audit, Kyocera is also Cyber Essentials Plus accredited. This means that the company is protected against some of the most common cyber threats facing businesses on a daily basis, which adds an additional layer of confidence that the business is going above and beyond to ensure data security.
