Matt Riley, Complete I.T.’s Quality and Compliance Director said, “With the number of external threats to businesses growing daily it is important to ensure we all put the appropriate security measures in place to protect ourselves. When most people think of information security they just think of technical/cyber security controls (such as anti-virus, firewalls, patching etc) but protecting your commercially sensitive data, your personal data and your intellectual property is so much more than this. Businesses need to put into place wide-ranging people, policy and procedural controls to cover all the aspects of the business and the data it holds.
As well as our responsibility to look after our own data, our clients also look to us to lead them through their information security journey. In achieving ISO27001:2013, this gives Complete I.T. the independently verified certification that we have the appropriate technologies, policies and procedures to ensure the data we hold is well protected and that we have the appropriate technologies and skills to lead our clients through their own information security endeavours.”
What is ISO/IEC 27001?
Certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is not obligatory but some organisations choose to implement the standard to add credibility and reassure customers and clients of their high information security standards.
It’s recognised internationally and covers privacy, confidentiality, IT and cyber security issues.
