Dish TV India Limited, world’s largest single country DTH Company, has achieved the ISO 27001 Certification, the international standard that sets out and describes requirements and best practices for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Dish TV India has received ISO 27001 certification for its Noida and Greater Noida facilities.

ISO 27001, considered the gold standard for information security, ensures systematic examination of the organization’s security risks leading to design and implementation of a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls. The standard also includes establishing, implementing and operating an ISMS along with constant monitoring, review and improvement so that security controls meet the organization’s information security needs on an ongoing basis.

Exhilarated at the achievement, Mr. Anil Dua, Group Chief Executive Officer, Dish TV India Limited, said, “Our unwavering dedication towards ensuring the very best entertainment experience for our customers is evident from our efforts in achieving new milestones and setting very high standards. The prestigious ISO 27001 certification will help us set the highest standard of information security controls & measures to protect information from any internal or external threat.”

Delighted at receiving the certification, Mr. V. K. Gupta, Chief Technical Officer, Dish TV India Limited, said, “With ISO 27001 certification, we have reinforced our commitment to providing complete assurance to our customers towards our security protocols, controls and practices. Information security management encompasses all types of information and determines how information is processed, stored, transferred, archived and destroyed. Dish TV India will continue its endeavor towards protection of information assets from potential security breaches.”

Under the certification, Dish TV India implemented 114 controls, spanning 14 domains encompassing various departments such as IT, HR, Sales, Revenue Assurance, Administration, Business Process Engineering, Call Centre technology, RF and Electrical.  With more than 10 months of planning and implementing stringent controls, Dish TV India defined well-rounded ISMS policies and ensured complete employee awareness and compliance.

Dish TV India believes that secure information is one that ensures confidentiality, integrity and availability and therefore, the need to protect information through appropriate security controls and measures.
