“Our customers trust us to manage and protect their data, and ensure that we continue to provide seamless, reliable services worldwide,” Mr. Steven Chen, Director of Business Intelligence Technology (BIT) of Dimerco commented. “While our core expertise is managing complex and challenging transportation projects, we are increasingly responsible for managing the flow of customer data and information along global supply chains. Clearly, it is critical that we keep this business intelligence secure. By implementing policies, procedures and practices under ISO27001 certification, our customers can have absolute confidence that their sensitive data is in safe hands at Dimerco.”
ISO27001 is the international standard that sets out the specification for best practice Information Security Management Systems, helping organizations manage information security and protect information assets by addressing people and processes as well as technology. Confirmed benefits of accreditation, quoted by BSI, include significant reduction of business risk, improved reputation with increased trust on the part of customers and other stakeholders, as well as enhanced business protection.
“A key aspect of ISO 27001 is the requirement for ongoing improvement,” Mr. Chen concluded. “Accredited businesses must continually review and refine their operations, maintain legislative and regulatory compliance, and demonstrate a robust approach to managing information security. In this way, Dimerco has invested in business resilience, adding value for our customers, and ensuring we operate to the highest standards – not only for today, but also for the future.”
