Aviareto, a joint venture between SITA SC and the Irish Government, has successfully achieved certification to the Information Security Management Systems standard ISO 27001, awarded by the British Standards Institute (BSI)
Aviareto manages the aviation industry’s not-for-profit International Registry service. The International Registry records creditor/debtors agreements for large movable assets (aircraft, engines, helicopters), and operates under the International convention which allows lenders to establish their rights to an asset in different parts of the world.
The registry uses leading edge IT technology to allow these interests to be registered and the entries to be securely consented to by the parties affected by the transaction.
In January 2009 Aviareto made the strategic decision to pursue certification to ISO 27001. Almir Business was selected as the preferred consultancy practice to help Aviareto establish and implement their Information Security Management System. Aviareto successfully accomplished its goal earlier this month, October 2009, achieving certification at the first attempt.
Commenting on the award, Head of Operations and Quality Management Representative, Kevin Thomas, said “Achieving ISO 27001 was both a strategic and core requirement for Aviareto. It helps us standardise and tune our security processes particularly in the area of data integrity. Without Almir Business’ guidance ISO 27001 certification would have been longer and more painful.”
