The certification follows an 18-month audit process and lasts for three years, during which time regular 12-monthly expert reviews will take place while Ebbon-Dacs will carry out its own internal audits to validate the robustness of the system.

Chief information officer Dave Minto said: “As a major supplier to the vehicle leasing and contract hire sector, it was absolutely essential that we demonstrate to the industry that we are fully adept in handling confidential client information and that the correct security protocols are in place.

“Whilst we had good security management, procedures and systems in place, we wanted to put them to the test against the very highest ISO standards so we could identify any areas for improvement, as well as promoting our achievement to current and future clients,” he added.
