HRS Secures ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management Standard

Digital traffic management specialists, HRS has been successfully certified by BSI to an industry leading standard, ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management.

In a global climate where cyber attacks are constantly increasing, the importance of protecting an organisation’s information assets, such as personal records and commercially sensitive information, is key to developing organisational resilience. The ISO Framework provides an effective and robust approach to risk management for information security and ensures that they are continually reviewed and improved, protecting the business, reputation and creating value.

As a developer and manufacturer of digital products and services, HRS operates within a highly-digitised environment. The ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security standard is confirmation of the importance HRS places on information security for themselves and their customers.

Roger Poeth, HRS Managing Director said “This is an enormous achievement and a milestone in our commitment to protecting our information security. A lot of hard work has gone into making this certification possible, with input from everyone across the business. ISO/IEC 27001 is one of the most complicated and hardest standards to obtain. It is regarded as a gold standard across industry, and everyone should feel very proud of the part they played in making this possible.”

HRS provides digital traffic management services to a wide range of companies working on behalf of National Highways and local authorities.

“Of course, the hardest part of any journey like this is sustaining the rigorous practices we have been audited against,” adds Roger. “However, we are committed to ISO/IEC 27001. The effort and work involved in securing this standard for the first time means we now have a very strong platform to build on for the future. It’s a standard we are very proud of.”
