UK Mail achieves ISO 27001 certification for all its UK Locations

UK Mail, the express delivery company, has achieved certification to ISO 27001:2013, the International Standard for Information Security Management. The certification, with a scope which encompasses all 52 of its depots and all its staff, serves to demonstrate UK Mail’s compliance with a ‘best practice’ standard.

Commenting on the certification Guy Buswell, CEO at UK Mail, said: “We are immensely proud of our achievement which includes all UK Mail locations and over 3,000 staff.  We are the only UK carrier to have achieved ISO 27001:2013 and so the certification acts as a significant market differentiator.  It shows how seriously we treat the information of all our customers, irrespective of the service we deliver to them, whether that is through our traditional delivery services or through our online imail application.”

ISO 27001 is a best practice framework for an information security management system (ISMS) which enables organisations to identify the risks to their important information and implement appropriate controls to reduce the risks.  The focus of the Standard is on continually improving policies, processes and working practices.  Certification to ISO 27001 provides organisations with an independent verification of its ability to manage information security.

Tony Smollett, IT Director at UK Mail, further comments : “In today’s 24 x7 cyber world, our information and information systems are exposed to an ever increasing range of information security threats.  Our customers are aware of these threats and are seeking assurance that their information is secure when being processed by UK Mail.  As part of our ISO 27001 implementation, we conducted a comprehensive information risk assessment and have implemented a series of additional security measures, including an extensive staff training and awareness programme.  This Standard will help reassure our customers and ensure we remain one of the UK’s leading and most trusted UK distribution and integrated delivery networks.”

UK Mail was assisted by Ultima Risk Management through all stages of its ISO 27001 implementation and its ISMS was assessed and approved by Certification Europe, a UKAS approved certification body.
