DLRT Prioritises The Protection Of Its Customers’ Data By Securing The Leading Security Management Standard

ISO 27001 standard

DLRT, part of The TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, has successfully been re-accredited to the ISO 27001 standard. The Lisburn-based printing specialist achieved the international standard that helps organisations manage their information security processes in line with best practice.

The ISO 27001 standard is a consistent and centrally controlled management system standard for protecting information and reducing threats to all business processes through effective monitoring and control of IT security risks.

Obtaining this certification involves the auditing and evaluation of a variety of internal processes, from information security guidelines, asset management, staff security and access control to systems maintenance, compliance, and cryptography. With this certification, DLRT ensures compliance with the international standards of the industry, assuring the best practices for information security controls are in place.

DLRT has held the ISO 27001 Information Security Management Standard (ISMS) for 14 years – since 2007 and also holds the Quality Management certification ISO 9001, which also has recently been reaccredited.   The TALL Group also holds a wide variety of other leading accreditations, including Cyber Essentials PLUS, Investors in People and the IS0 14001 Environmental Management Standard.

Peter Thomas, Managing Director of DLRT, said: “We are extremely proud to have once again been awarded the ISO 27001 standard in recognition of our continued commitment to protect our customers highly valued data.  Data is now the oil that ensures business gets done, it’s ever increasing value to so many of today’s businesses is why such accreditations are key to underpinning existing internal structures and process and most importantly our culture which consistently delivers a quality proposition for our customers.

“Our auditors, Certification Europe, who performed the audit remotely again due to COVID-19 restrictions, were also joined on this occasion by a UKAS assessor who monitored the audit throughout the whole day”

“Our staff were tremendous during the audit day, and perhaps more importantly, their continual maintenance of the ISMS and Quality Standard on a daily basis, proves vital in the ongoing success at both these audits and for our customers’ satisfaction.”
