Elif has been awarded ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation

Elif is one of the first packaging companies, which was awarded with the 2013 version of ISO/IEC 27001 Information Safety Management System Standard in Turkey.

ISO/IEC 27001 is the only controllable international standard that defines the requirements of Information Safety Management System (ISMS). Being designed to ensure adequate and proportionate safety controls, ISO/IEC 27001 certification helps protect and manage valuable information assets. At the same time, ISO/IEC 27001 adopts the process approach to create, implement, operate, monitor, inspect, maintain and develop the Information Safety Management System.

Following the inspections carried out in June, Elif has been granted the ISO 27001 Information Safety Certificate, which sets the standards to prepare risk management and risk handling plans, duties and responsibilities, business continuity plans, emergency incident management procedures of the institutions in terms of information safety and to keep the records during the practice. Elif has achieved that success by publishing an information safety policy in which all activities are contained and by creating staff awareness about the threats facing the information safety.

This Certification, issued by an authorised and independent organisation, is a testament to Elif's consistent and constant quality and safety policies. It has been carried out by SGS (Société Générale de Surveillance), which has earned a reputation throughout the world with control inspection, verification, testing and certification in the areas of quality and integrity.

Besides the physical safety threats and being also aware of the risks on information safety, Elif has once again proved its pioneering stance in adapting the innovations and technology in its system as one of the first packaging companies who obtained the Safety Management System in the sector.

Considered as a stamp of quality in Information Technology sector, ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation is not only an indication of Elif's sufficiency in terms of safety and quality of its products but also the importance it gives to the safety and quality of information.
