We are delighted to announce that Strident is ISO/IEC 27001 Certified. "We have always strived to maintain the best working practices and the highest levels of professionalism, so it made sense for us to adopt the gold standard in information security management; ISO/IEC 27001," explains Chris Joberns, managing director at Strident.
Data management and security are hot topics, with frequent press stories highlighting both traditional malicious attacks and also inappropriate collection and misuse of personal data. ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation will enable us to support our customers to the fullest extent and give them even greater confidence in the work we do.
"Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification has taken many months of hard work from all the team at Strident and I'm very proud of what we have accomplished. It highlights the professional approach we take with our customers, their data and our data. Having gone through the process, we are able to better advise our customers on the administrative processes involved as well as the technical security that we've always excelled at," adds Chris.
Strident and our customers are becoming required to work to stricter data management guidelines, such as the General Data Protection Regulation and the UK Data Protection Bill.
"Although we already practice what we preach and had strict data policies in place, a number of potential customers were asking us for this higher level of accreditation, enabling us to work with other ISO certified businesses. Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 will not only enable to reach new customers but allows us to guide and advise our customers who also wish to gain certification."
ISO/IEC 27001 is the international standard that describes best practice for an information security management system. This is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation's information risk management processes.
The International Standards Organisation states it was developed to "provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an Information Security Management System. ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process."
