It’s very important to us that our clients always trust us to keep their work secure, whether we’re producing marketing flyers, or medical research binders. To ensure this always stays the case, we regularly review our Information Management Security System. Regular “housekeeping” is a very important step in staying secure in today’s digital world. During our recent review, we updated some of our policies. We reviewed our Data Protection policy, Back-Up Policy, Information Exchange and Device security.
But what does getting an ISO certificate mean and what does it have to do with staying secure?
ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 166 national standards bodies.
Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market-relevant International Standards. These standards support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good-quality products and services.
This standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization.
