We are pleased to report that we have successfully completed our first Information Security Management Systems audit. The assessment was carried out on 20th Feb, in accordance with the ISO 27001:2013 quality standard.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of an organisation.
This was a critical assessment for our ISMS Development and Management Team and provides a key indicator of how we have understood and managed the requirements of the ISO 27001 assessment standard.
The assessment, carried out by LRQA, was an intensive process and provided a robust examination of our information security systems, electronic and physical controls, people management and operational performance since achieving the initial certification in August 2016.
We came through the assessment with the recommendation for continued certification and a confirmation that we are effectively managing information security at our head office and operational centres at Castle Donington.
ISO 27001 certification supports our strategic plans for growth and forms an integral part of ensuring that our security efforts are planned and implemented coherently and cost-effectively.
LRQA is a world leading, independent provider of Business Assurance services including management system certification, validation, verification and training to bespoke and international standards and schemes.
