RINA Issues Certification to Essar

Monday, July 31, 2006
RINA issued the first Information Security certificate in India and certified Essar Steel Ltd. to ISO 27001:2005. RINA has certified Essar Steel's Global Data Center (GDC), situated in Hazira, 250 km from Mumbai. The Center supports the group's business functions and offers server, desktop, applications, database and help desk management services. Certification was performed in the Indian offices through a system of audits which concentrated on all the aspects of security management, assessing their implementation and effectiveness. Through recognition and compliance with the reference standards set down by ISO 27001, Essar Steel will be able to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information in a dynamic and efficient way. The ISO/IEC 27001:2005 standard introduces a concept according to which it is not enough to implement a set of controls and procedures for security, it is also necessary to manage and maintain them over the years. The certificate issued to Essar is seen as an important step for RINA as it represents the first Indian company to be certified according to this scheme. For Essar Steel it represents an important investment to enhance its commitment in the security field, particularly in to the ICT sector and to the instruments able to sustain the development for controlled and effective growth.
