KCS Automotive Achieves ISO 27001:2022 Certification

In a significant stride towards increased excellence in information security, KCS Automotive has announced ISO 27001:2022 certification - testament to the company's steadfast commitment to securing client data and its dedicated approach to robust information security management systems (ISMS).

The path to KCS Automotive’s ISO 27001:2022 certification was rigorous and collaborative, thanks to a partnership with the respected certification partner, Citation.

Citation's thorough audits scrutinised KCS Automotive’s proposed business procedures and existing security protocols. The result is a comprehensive suite of policies and procedures, crafted to ensure KCS Automotive's information security aligns with international standards.

The certification process involved developing an information security framework that aligns KCS Automotive's business objectives with the stringent criteria of ISO 27001. This strategic alignment demonstrates a protective shield around company and client information - solidifying the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

All policies and operational procedures have been meticulously documented and are now accessible to KCS Automotive’s team, ensuring that every member of the organisation is apprised of and operates in accordance with these new standards.

Multiple benefits of certification

ISO 27001:2022 certification brings with it a myriad of benefits, evidencing the company's improved information security and streamlined processes.

It showcases to customers a systematic approach to managing and safeguarding company information, further bolstering trust and confidence in KCS Automotive’s services.

In addition, the certification ensures KCS Automotive's compliance with various legal and regulatory requirements, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effectively mitigating legal risks and potential penalties associated with data security.

The ISO 27001:2022 certification also appeals to customers and partners who prioritise robust information security practices. It reinforces the company's global credentials and supports its aspirations of expanding into new international markets.

Commenting on the certification, Ritchie Kelk, Managing Director of KCS Automotive said: “A huge thanks to our dedicated team, whose efforts have been fundamental in achieving this certification. This is a significant achievement for the business and paves the way for continued diligence in the realm of information security. We will build upon this foundation of trust and excellence, continuing to support our clients with unparalleled integrity and insight.”
