Customer communications specialist d-flo has achieved an independent standard for data protection ahead of new GDPR rules coming in.
Following a full audit, the firm has attained IASME certification, an alternative to the internationally recognised ISO 27001, validating its processes.
D-Flo attained the accreditation with the help of CRIBB Cyber Security, a division of The Ice Way specialist IT consultants.
The firm said the certification was “further confirmation of d-flo’s rigorous commitment to secure business practices and data protection”.
D-Flo works with travel firms to provide timely and personalised customer communications post-sale to improve customer service, improve efficiencies and drive loyalty.
An IASME audit covers all aspects of a company’s business including risk management,
internal training, incident response and business continuity.
It also confirms d-flo’s GDPR readiness. As part of the standard, d-flo will undertake annual intermediate assessments and has committed to a three-year comprehensive re-assessment to ensure it remains compliant.
Bob Russell, chief technology officer at d-flo, said: “We’re very proud to have achieved
IASME certification, it rewards the team for their efforts to implement best security practice both for our internal business processes as well as for our customers using our industry aligned communication solutions and services.
“In addition to the efforts we have put in to upgrading their solutions, our customers can be confident that we will deliver on our promise to protect data and conduct business in a secure manner.”
