Powel achieves ISO certification for information security management
We are proud to announce successful achievement of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management. By achieving this internationally recognised certification, Powel has demonstrated its commitment to data protection and continuous improvement.
The certification is a result of systematic and targeted efforts on information security and business processes to protect assets and business-critical information. It is tangible proof that Powel is working in a way that ensures information security, quality and efficient processes across the board. The main audit was conducted by the independent certification body DNV GL.
“This certification is testament to our dedication delivering solutions and services of the highest quality to our customers, and to prevent unauthorised access to confidential or sensitive information," says Trond Straume, CEO of Powel.
"We strive to always increase customer value and satisfaction and are constantly evaluating our security practices and potential risks, way of working and areas of improvement.” says Straume.
In an industry where information security is of the outmost importance, Powel's customers want to see that we continuously improve, and they want to know how we protect their business information. For many European customers, having an ISO certification is a requirement in the tender process and as such the certification is an important step in our goal to secure further international growth.
This ISO certificate is an essential step for Powel. The certificate is valid for three years. We are continuing the process of getting all business areas in Powel certified for ISO 9001 Quality Management - Powel Smart Energy achieved the certificate in September 2018.
