First Monitoring Centre Graded A1 For AS2201.2

♦ First Monitoring Centre Graded A1 For AS2201.2 – Golden Electronics is the first monitoring centre to be graded A1 in accordance with AS2201.2 2022.

Updated in March 2022, the latest version of the AS2201.2 standard includes a range of new requirements that monitoring centres need to comply with. These requirements include the need for a thorough risk management process, IT and cyber security controls in line with the requirements of ISO 27001, stricter requirements regarding security technology, and increased physical security requirements amongst other items.

Connley Walker, an Australian security consultancy and one of the participants involved in the development of the updated standard, carried out the grading assessment on behalf of ASIAL in September 2022.

“We were impressed to see Golden Electronics high level of preparation to meet the requirements of a relatively new standard,” said Simon Walker, Director of Connley Walker.

The superseded edition of the standard (2004) will remain valid for 2 years from the release of the 2022 edition allowing centres to choose between the two standards for the time being. However, from March 2024, any certification or recertification of a monitoring centre will be under the new 2022 standard.

Based in Tasmania, Golden Electronics has provided security services to the Tasmanian market for over 35 years, commencing operations in 1986 under the direction of founder and managing director, George Pavlides.
