The development of new technologies, as well as the rise of digitization, bring the need to tighten personal data protection rules, so that citizens feel secured, but also that companies or organizations keep up with updated international standards.
Especially for companies, such as MYTILINEOS Energy & Metals, the protection of personal data is essential, to ensure its prestige – especially in international partnerships – but also to enhance the quality of the services offered.
The certification of personal data protection establishes in an absolute way that companies respect the chain of their partners and comply with the rules. The employees of each company themselves are more aware of personal data protection issues.
Thus, MYTILINEOS Energy & Metals takes care not only to secure the information of all its interested parties, but also to certify that the actions to protect personal data are the most appropriate.
Therefore, it received the relevant certification from TÜV HELLAS (TÜV NORD) for the management of the personal data of the M Power Projects Sector of the Energy Sector. This is the first Certificate in the country with ESYD Accreditation according to the ISO/IEC 27701:2019 standard.
This standard reinforces the company's existing ISO 27001 information security management system, thus enabling the M Power Projects Sector to develop a comprehensive Information Security and Privacy Management System.
Accreditation demonstrates a strong approach to certification and helps demonstrate a commitment to protecting personal information in today's evolving digital world. Furthermore, the commitment of MYTILINEOS to the implementation of policies and controls that ensure the integrity, confidentiality and availability of the information it manages and at the same time to its compliance with the applicable legislative requirements for the management of personal data (GDPR) is confirmed.
Sofocles Karapidakis, Compliance Director and Data Protection Officer of MYTILINEOS emphasized the utmost importance of personal data protection for the company, especially today, with the increasing prevalence of cyber threats and evolving privacy regulations. He emphasized how "MYTILINEOS recognizes the need for a strong and dynamic approach to data security. We understand the critical nature of data protection and have invested significant resources to develop a program that exceeds industry standards. With this initiative, we aim to provide our customers, suppliers and employees with the assurance that their valuable data is safe and protected.”
