Without ISO 27001 are you exposed?
When your company works with a consultant for data security, you can’t afford for that vendor to have mediocre management practices. If you are trusting someone else with your IT security, they had better be top notch.
An easy way to objectively measure effectiveness and security is to find out if the data security company you trust is ISO certified. Concept Management Consulting has the distinction of being the only data security and destruction company in the U.K. that has Satisfactory IG Toolkit and is ISO 27001 certified at this time.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 which is an upgraded version of ISO/IEC 27001:2005, specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organisation. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organisation.
“Concept is the only onsite data destruction company that has earned this certification,” said Mark. “We will continue to lead the way with innovative data security solutions to help our clients keep their brand safe.”
There are varying levels and categories of ISO certification. Of these, ISO 27001 is the most stringent certification for information security controls. The certification guarantees that appropriate information security controls and other forms of risk treatment are in place to prevent and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities.
Your company or organization may not be able to pass the three-stage audit (which takes nearly a year to complete) but you can certainly partner with a data security company who has.
