8 Key Facts About the ADISA Standard 8.0 and Certification

One of the key benefits of the DIAL Rating system is that organisations can quickly calculate risk using a standard set of questions.

Later this month S2S Group will be launching such a tool to allow companies to score their risk factors and receive their DIAL Rating. S2S Group can look at whether the collection and IT disposal processes need to be on low, medium, or high-risk levels.


S2S Group will match the service to meet that risk. The benefits of the whole process and the DIAL Rating means that the collection itself is compliant with the UK GDPR regulations, it mitigates the risk and it’s legal.

Finally, the whole process is audited by ADISA meaning that the data controller does not have to audit the process themselves.
