Submitted by Andrew

Zog Energy, the independent energy provider, today announced that it has attained the ISO/IEC 27001 security certification. This certification is a robust international test of a company's physical and information security. In an increasingly hostile environment for customer information, Zog Energy has undergone this process to ensure that it is ready to face the challenges ahead and continue to provide its customers with clear, customer-friendly access to the company alongside secure procedures to keep their data safe.

“I am delighted to have attained this information security certification,” said Tony Chester, Director of Zog Energy. “It demonstrates our commitment to Information Security and our Privacy Policy,” he continued. “It gives us and our customers confidence that we have strong measures in place to protect their privacy. The company should feel rightly proud that its procedures for protecting information have been tested rigorously and proven to operate to the very highest international standards, giving peace of mind to its customers and staff alike. ISO 27001 certification is a very challenging task.”

With the imminent rollout of smart meters, it is vital that energy companies rise to the challenge the new technology poses to information security. Complacency is not an option in our increasingly connected world. Having demonstrated that Zog Energy has the necessary controls in place ahead of smart meter rollout, they are in a commanding position to take the energy business into the future.
