We recognise the importance of keeping information safe in a world in which it is increasingly under threat, so we are extremely proud to announce that we now have a fully compliant ISO 27001 information security management system in place.
Showcasing our information security
While we already had robust processes in place for keeping information safe, we recognised that ensuring these met the best-practice requirements of ISO 27001, the international Standard for information security, was the right thing to do. Our team have therefore spent the last six months refining our processes and ensuring that they fully meet the requirements of the Standard.
With 114 controls to protect against digital, physical and legal risks, ISO 27001’s processes will help us to keep confidential information secure, guard against cyber-attacks and provide us all with added confidence that we have the right procedures in place to keep information safe.
Keeping our information secure
The management system has been created and implemented using the functionality of our secure online ISO management platform, QMS Connect. This will help us to carefully maintain the management system going forward and ensure ongoing compliance.
We have also created a schedule of internal audits, which will begin January 2022. These will be undertaken by a skilled internal team, who will audit processes that are independent of their own work. A management review is also due to carried out in December.
