Processing sites in California and Illinois achieve ISO 27001 certification
Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) recently earned ISO 27001:2013 certification at two U.S. facilities in Roseville, California and West Chicago, Illinois.
ISO 27001 certification is a standard which defines an organization’s commitment to information security. This systematic approach to managing sensitive company information oversees all processed equipment, and data residing, are managed securely and responsibly. SRS is currently ISO 27001 certified in Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Poland and the United Kingdom. Adding two U.S. ISO 27001 certifications to the 121 total standards and certificates SRS holds around the world, is representative of SRS’ efforts in companywide integrity, transparency and consistency in operative standards and controls.
“With SRS at the forefront of the IT asset disposition operations and services we already had strong information security controls in place,” stated Sean Magann, global vice president of sales and marketing for SRS. “This certification serves as a strong indicator that our overall security standards and processes are effective, and will remain effective. We chose ISO 27001 specifically because it has a robust framework to monitor, track and measure data security, which is important to us as well as our clients.”
Aside from quality, environmental and security certifications learning more about a company’s security management structure is helpful. If the service being offered shows they have addressed a strong security framework that is properly and consistently defined, planned and communicated this will provide you with more confidence in choosing ITAD services with them.
