Media Release: Increasing Your Protection with Data Security at Locatrix
Security surrounding the protection of information is paramount in the rapidly changing digital environment we live in. As a business, Locatrix is committed to data security, and we are proud to announce we have successfully achieved ISO 27001 certification.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard, which is crucial to upholding the integrity of information security and privacy measures within all industries.
While already certified to ISO standards for Quality ISO 9001, Safety ISO 18001, Environment ISO 14001 and Safety AS/NZS 4801, Locatrix has taken important steps to protect valuable client data by implementing an internationally recognised data protection methodology.
ISO 27001 Certification
To satisfy the requirements of ISO 27001 certification, Locatrix undertook an extensive process over a nine-month period to implement all 114 controls through updated policies and procedures. Additionally, as part of the investment in data security, Locatrix has appointed Amanda Eade as Internal Auditor (qualified for both internal and external audit preparation). In this role, Amanda is responsible for the Integrated Management System operations within the business.
“Now, as one of a small group of software organisations in Australia certified to the standard, we have increased our capability to deliver strategic partnerships where sensitive data requires stringent controls to protect against potential threats,” said CEO John Hummelstad.
Any potential questions around information security controls can now be confidently answered through this certification. The ISO 27001 certification provides assurance for agencies contemplating future partnerships with Locatrix, as data security and privacy is our top priority.
Our clients and partners will also benefit, as they now have the framework and controls in place to most effectively handle and protect sensitive business data.
