CitNOW Group achieves ISO 27001 certification; confirms adherence to highest information security standards
- ISO 27001 is the benchmark international standard for information security management
- Further reinforces CitNOW Group’s ecosystem of applications and solutions in the motor retail sector
CitNOW Group has secured ISO 27001 UKAS certification, confirming it meets the highest standards of information security across all of its operations. This certification provides OEMs, retailers, and their customers with reassurance about how data stored or processed by CitNOW Group companies will be handled.
ISO 27001 is the benchmark international standard for information security management systems (ISMS), determining an organisation’s adherence to recognised best practice in the management of data as it relates to people, processes, and technology.
Obtaining ISO 27001 certification involved rigorous assessments of CitNOW Group’s information security infrastructure; indicating that the Group employs a consistent and highly comprehensive spectrum of procedures and safeguards across its various businesses.
Companies awarded ISO 27001 are required to provide robust data security measures and technologies to protect information assets and minimise data threats. This reaffirms CitNOW Group’s status as the leading provider of digital solutions in the motor retail sector.
Carol Fairchild, Chief Operating Officer at CitNOW Group, said: “To attain ISO 27001 certification in just one business is a significant achievement; to attain it across the fast-growing CitNOW Group highlights the efforts made over many years to implement best practice, as well as the continued hard work of our highly capable data compliance team.”
