Isaac obtains international information security certification

Aug. 1, 2022
The ISO 27001 certification is the international standard for managing information security, which includes protecting fleet clients’ data.

Fleet management solution provider Isaac Instruments successfully achieved ISO 27001 certification, the international standard for information security management, the company announced on Aug. 1. The technology company said the ISO 27001:2013 certification from the International Organization for Standardization is part of its continuous efforts to pursue stringent security standards. 

Following an 18-month process, an accredited certification body granted Isaac the official ISO 27001 certification after performing an independent audit of the organization. Isaac’s information security management system (ISMS) encompasses the whole organization. This includes core IT infrastructure management, end-user computing, vulnerability management, security event and incident management, software development lifecycle, and project management.

“This achievement is a testament to Isaac’s commitment to go above and beyond when it comes to securing our organization,” said Jacques DeLarochelliere, CEO and co-founder of Isaac. “The ISO 27001 certification is an additional signal to our fleet clients and integration partners that Isaac follows the highest industry standards to protect their valuable data, thus giving them a competitive edge.”  

DeLarochelliere credited Joe Russo, VP of information technology and security, and all Isaac colleagues, for their joint efforts in achieving this certification. It comes at a time of rising cybersecurity threats to the financial well-being of fleet clients across North America. 

ISO 27001 is recognized as the international standard for managing information security. It enables organizations to manage the security of assets such as intellectual property, employee details, and information entrusted by third parties. It is seen as an indication that an organization is following information security best practices.  

Isaac’s electronic logging device (ELD) and fleet management telematics solution, which is used by more than 40% of the largest carriers across Canada, helps fleets monitor and optimize vehicle efficiencies, including fuel consumption, engine data processing, driver productivity, as well as safety and hours-of-service compliance. 

Beyond ELDs, Isaac partners with trucking fleets to simplify the life of drivers and keep the wheels turning, including real-time in-cab coaching, which provides fuel savings and reduces accidents.   

As part of the ISO certification, the Isaac team had to ensure each governance document and security policy and procedure met the international compliance standards.  

“ISO 27001 certification is a true commitment to our clients who trust us each day to help optimize their operations,” DeLarochelliere said. “It is another tremendous achievement for our talented team and shows our current and future fleet clients how Isaac recognizes the importance of information security.”
