Sims Recycling Solutions Certifies Two Additional Facilities with Information Security Management Standard

Processing sites in California and Illinois achieve ISO 27001 certification

October 23, 2018

West Chicago, Ill. – Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS), a leading global provider of electronics recycling and IT asset disposition (ITAD) services, recently earned ISO 27001:2013 certification at two U.S. facilities in Roseville, California and West Chicago, Illinois.

ISO 27001 certification is a standard which defines an organization’s commitment to information security. An information security management system is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so it remains secure. For SRS, the sensitive information which is managed includes client data bearing devices.

SRS is currently ISO 27001 certified in Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Poland and the United Kingdom. Adding two U.S. ISO 27001 certifications to the 121 total standards and certificates SRS holds around the world, is representative of SRS’ efforts in companywide integrity, transparency and consistency in operative standards and controls.

“With SRS at the forefront of the IT asset disposition operations and services we already had strong information security controls in place,” stated Sean Magann, global vice president of sales and marketing for SRS. “This certification serves as a strong indicator that our overall security standards and processes are effective, and will remain effective. We chose ISO 27001 specifically because it has a robust framework to monitor, track and measure data security, which is important to us as well as our clients.”
