Following soon after our ISO 9001 certification, we're excited to announce that we have been awarded ISO 27001, the international standard for information security management systems.
ISO 27001 certification means users of our franchised dealer software - CustomerVue and CustomerLounge, as well as our independent garage management system CarVue, can be confident that our systems and processes are as robust and secure as possible.
The certification focuses on a wide range of technical aspects including data protection, how information is processed, stored and how it is used including employee access and training.
Autino general manager Andrew Mortimer said:
“ISO 27001 provides a framework in which a company is able to benchmark all of its security measures including its premises and storage, how its employees are recruited and trained, how suppliers are managed and the implementation of protection in the digital space.
“The automotive sales, repair and servicing sector collects extensive data on customers including personal details and financial information, so it’s imperative that our clients are able to assure their customers that they are using systems which are robust, reputable and trustworthy. We wanted our automotive clients to enjoy the additional peace of mind that comes with achieving a globally recognised standard.
“Rightly so, it is extremely difficult to achieve this certification and we are very proud to have done so although the hard work and dedication to information security doesn’t stop. We will be continually developing and enhancing our protection levels to ensure that our systems are as secure as possible and that we retain our accreditation.”
As a cloud-based technology provider, our customers are always using the latest software version with the best protection automatically in place, without the need to download system and software updates. It also means the highest security levels are also applied without intervention or interruption to the service.
Andrew added: “We will be proudly displaying our certification on our office walls and we are also able to utilise the logo on our website and our communications which will ensure our clients and potential clients can have absolute confidence in our security levels.”
