We did it, I now work for an ISO 27001 Company!!
It’s been an interesting 12 months here at FEPS, with Covid overshadowing many of the work and achievements we have delivered, so it’s wonderful to now get the opportunity to shout out that we achieved ISO 27001 certification yesterday!!
You might think we now have an opportunity to relax and whilst that would be nice, the work has just begun. We have fully implemented our ISMS (Information Security Management system) across the entire business from engaging new providers, to the standards we hold when processing information and how we keep our client’s data safe. The 114 controls we are measured against require continuing assessment and oversight to ensure we deliver higher standards for our clients and ourselves as an organisation.
ISO 27001 certification is a significant milestone for us as we have always endeavoured to achieve this. Whilst we have been working at a level consistent with the standards it is nice to now formally demonstrate this. We passed our stage 2 audit yesterday with what I would say would be described as flying colours.
If you are a client, you can now update your records to reflect that fact that we are a provider with ISO 27001 certification but also be even more confident that, at all times, we will continue to maintain these standards in all that we do.
A big thank you to Mr Gary Hibberd of Cyberfort for your help, guidance, assistance and patience, but also to the entire FEPS team for embracing the continued change and committing to the ISO way.
If you would like to know more about the standard and what to note in your DPIA’s please get in touch using our contact form or speak to your account manager.
As soon as we have our certificate number through we will provide this to all clients so you can update your records.
All the best
Ben – the DPO
