Madura Fashion receives ISO 27001 certification
Apr '13
Madura Fashion and Lifestyle (Madura F&L), a division of Aditya Birla Nuvo Limited, one of India's fastest growing branded apparel companies and a premium lifestyle player in the retail sector, has received ISO 27001 certification covering all of its factories, warehouse and regional and corporate offices across all functions. 
ISO 27001 is an information security management system (ISMS) standard published in October 2005 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It is known as ISO/IEC 27001:2005 – Information technology – Security techniques – Information security management systems – Requirements.
ISO/IEC 27001 formally specifies a management system that is intended to bring information security under explicit management control. Being a formal specification means that it mandates specific requirements and organisations who adopt this standard can be formally audited and certified compliant with the standard. 
The key reasons to adopt ISO 27001 are:
-It is suitable for protecting critical and sensitive information.
-It provides a holistic, risk-based approach to secure information and compliance.
-Demonstrates credibility, trust, satisfaction and confidence with stakeholders, partners, and customers.
-Demonstrates security status according to internationally accepted criteria.
-Creates a market differentiation due to prestige, image and external goodwill.
The certification audit was conducted by an external accredited certification agency, the British Standards Institution (BSI) during February-March, 2013. BSI Group is the world’s largest certification body, which audits and provides certification to companies worldwide who implement management systems standards.
