Keeping sensitive data secure is a top priority for businesses. That's why we embarked on the journey to ISO 27001 certification. ISO 27001 certification is a globally recognised standard for information security.
In this blog post, we'll take you through our process, explain what ISO 27001 means for our customers, and share the advantages it brings to our and your organisation.
Understanding ISO 27001
ISO 27001 is the gold standard of data security standards. It sets the framework for creating, implementing, and continuously improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The goal is to identify and mitigate risks, protecting valuable information from threats.
Certified by BSI
We're proud to announce that we've earned ISO 27001 certification through BSI (British Standards Institution). BSI are leaders in evaluating compliance with international standards.
The Certification Process
1. Gap Analysis: We the process by assessing our existing security practices against ISO 27001 requirements. This helps businesses spot areas that need improvement to align with the standard's high bar.
2. Risk Assessment: Next, we delve into risk assessment. We identified potential threats and vulnerabilities to our information assets, allowing us to create robust risk controls.
3. ISMS Development: We developed our own Information Security Management System (ISMS) tailored to our unique needs. It's like having our own fortress of security, complete with policies, procedures, and guidelines for keeping our data safe.
4. Documentation: We create comprehensive documentation. This includes an information security policy, a risk treatment plan, an asset inventory, and various operational procedures. It's our roadmap to maintaining security standards and achieving ISO 27001 compliance.
5. Implementation and Training: With our ISMS ready to roll, we implemented it across the organization. We also made sure our team members were armed with the knowledge and skills to keep data secure, thanks to training and awareness programs.
6. Internal Audits: We weren't satisfied with just meeting the minimum requirements. We conducted regular internal audits to evaluate the effectiveness of our controls and identify any areas where we could increase security.
7. Certification Audit: We called in BSI to conduct an independent audit. They examined our ISMS, making sure we had ticked all the ISO 27001 boxes and implemented the necessary controls.
