Mahindra receives BS 7799

Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) has announced that the company has received the BS 7799 certification in information security. M&M has successfully completed an audit carried out by STQC, the authorised certification body for the standard, and the certificate has been presented.

Mahindra Special Services Group (SSG) helped in the implementation of the Information Security Management System (ISMS) and the certification. Mahindra SSG implemented the ISMS across 48 area sales offices and the eight divisions of M&M: Auto Sector (AS), Farm Equipment Sector (FES), Mahindra Defence Systems (MDS), Mahindra Engineering Services (MES), Strategic Sourcing Business Unit (SSBU), Mahindra Special Services Group (MSSG), Transport Services Group (TSG) and the Spares Business Unit (SBU).

M&M successfully completed the two phases on the way to BS 7799 certification. The first phase of the process involved M&M preparing for the certification of ISMS by developing and implementing ISMS, integrating ISMS into its day-to-day business processes, training its staff, and establishing an ongoing programme of ISMS maintenance. The second phase involved auditing of M&M's ISMS implementation by an accredited certification body, for which the services of STQC IT Certification Services (India) were hired.
