Enhanced level of information security for fleets with new FleetCheck certification

Enhanced level of information security for fleets with new FleetCheck certification

An enhanced level of information security for fleets is being promised by a new certification received by FleetCheck.

The fleet software specialist now holds ISO 27001, the internationally recognised information security standard, which specifies and audits processes that are intended to bring information security under clear and unambiguous management control.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “The nature of the services we provide, which quite often include personal details and other sensitive data, means that information security is a subject that we take very seriously.

“Over the last year especially, we have been increasingly working with a number of major industry bodies and larger fleets, and they rightly demand the highest level of compliance in this area.

“Achieving ISO 27001 provides a strong baseline standard and, alongside the other measures we are undertaking, means that our rapidly-growing client base can rest assured that their information is protected with very high levels of control, auditing and security.”

FleetCheck has signed up more than 200 new customers so far in 2018, bringing the total to more than 800. The number of fleets using its software has also risen by more than 15,000 to around 80,000.

Additionally, earlier this year, a new FleetCheck regional office was opened in Doncaster to serve the company’s user base of larger commercial vehicles, which is becoming increasingly focused in the North of England.
