KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe B.V. (KYOCERA) has demonstrated its commitment to data security by achieving international standard ISO 27001 certification.
The certification was presented to KYOCERA by BSI Group, the internationally recognised standards authority, following a stringent auditing process. Initiated in April 2016, an extensive audit of KYOCERA's hardware, software and processes has taken place at KYOCERA sites across EMEA, including its headquarters in Hoofddorp, The Netherlands.
ISO 27001 is the international standard that describes best practice for an information security management system (ISMS). Certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that an organisation follows the highest standard of data security best practices.
"We are delighted to be pioneers in achieving this certification," comments Andrie Muchtar, European Information Security Officer, KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe B.V. "The ISO 27001 standard provides one of the strongest guarantees available for the security of our employee and customer data, enabling us to compete for tenders where this compliance is a mandatory requirement.
"As customers migrate to a digital environment, cyber security is of paramount importance for KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe and our sales companies throughout our European, Middle East and African territories. With this foundation we are well-positioned to comply with GDPR and support our customers in ensuring they adhere to these requirements as well."
"The ISO 27001 certification proves that an organisation is taking security threats seriously and has defined and put in place best-practice information security processes and controls," comments Dave Hagenaars, managing director of BSI Group, The Netherlands B.V.
"Being ISO 27001 certified not only brings great commercial value to KYOCERA, but also ensures we maintain a high status of information security. Thus, by taking care of our customers and employees we are in line with the fundamental philosophy of our company – to do the right thing as human beings," concludes Takahiro Sato, President of KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe B.V.
