Cyber attacks are a significant and ever-increasing threat to businesses, their customers and private individuals. They pose the potential danger of data breaches and the exposure of sensitive information. Hackers can infiltrate networks and steal personal data, financial information, and intellectual property. As the online environment becomes more interconnected, the dangers of cyber attacks continue to evolve and intensify, underscoring the importance of cybersecurity measures and awareness to safeguard against this growing threat.
These reasons convinced Relay that we should gain ISO 27001 certification. This requires the management of companies to:
- Examine their information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and potential impacts
- Design and implement comprehensive information security controls and risk avoidance
- Adopt a management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet their information security needs on an ongoing basis
Relay has already gained ISO 9001 Quality and ISO 14001 Environmental certifications, as well as FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) accreditation.
Assisted by the leading ISO Consultancy, training and Certification body Clear Quality Ltd., gaining our new ISO 27001 cyber security certification took the Relay team 14 months of hard work to achieve.
However, we believe that this time and effort was very well spent. Businesses looking for support for their transport and logistics requirements value the hallmark of quality and professionalism demonstrated by the achievement of ISO standards in different areas.
Also, as a further reassurance to customers, Relay has taken out cyber insurance as an extra security measure in the unlikely event of any cyber breach.
