As the Information Security Manager at Diagnostax, I am delighted to announce that we have recently achieved certification in the internationally recognised ISO 27001 Information Security Management Standard.
The accreditation audit was completed with QMS. In the audit I conducted a review of our systems, policies and processes – any gaps were identified and then closed. The review was verified by QMS at which point we were awarded the certification there and then!
What is ISO27001?
ISO 27001 is an international standard for an information security management system (ISMS). This is a framework of policies and procedures that include all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes. It covers people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process, identifying vulnerabilities to protect against potential threats. ISMS preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information which gives interested parties the confidence that any security risks are adequately identified and managed.
What does this mean?
Achieving certification demonstrates that as a business we have the systems in place to protect confidential and sensitive information and data, whether held online or offline.
As our customers and/or suppliers we want you to have the greatest confidence that information security is a top priority.
