TVS SCS Achieves Approval to ISO 27001

We are extremely pleased to announce that TVS SCS has recently been successful in achieving approval to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard.

What is ISO/IEC 27001?

The ISO 27001 standard is an internationally recognised management system tool to help organisations better manage their information assets. The ISO 27001 certification can help protect systems against computer-assisted fraud, cyber attack, sabotage and viruses. It is now becoming more common for organisations see certification to ISO 27001 as a prerequisite for doing business.

How was it achieved?

Following an in-depth review of the business operation and a risk assessment by LRQA ((Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance), we successfully achieved the esteemed status, confirming that we have the appropriate procedures in place to reduce the risk of computer-assisted fraud, cyber-attack, sabotage and viruses.

A key strategy for TVS SCS has been to develop, formalise and gain accreditation for its Information Security Management System. In November 2016 TVS SCS obtained Cyber Essentials Plus certification which was seen as a key building block in achieving this goal. Our Compliance team then focused on achieving accreditation to the internationally recognised standard of ISO27001 which was awarded in April 2017.

This accreditation clearly demonstrates our commitment to security, compliance and continual improvement processes.

What does this mean for TVS SCS?

This prestigious accreditation further complements TVS SCS’ capabilities, promotes best practice and minimises risk on behalf of both the company and our customers. It also reaffirms our commitment to confidentiality and the protection of the information that we hold against an ever increasing cyber threat.

This latest UKAS accredited management system complements our existing ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified systems and emphasises the commitment of TVS SCS and our board to the structure and principles such systems bring.

Our next steps include formally accrediting our Occupational Health and Safety Management System to BS OHSAS 18001 prior to transition to ISO45001 when released.
