ISO27001 data protection certification….a year in!

We’re just working up to our first external annual audit for ISO27001 – that’s the international data protection standard, which Clinco attained last summer.  We’re bringing our first audit a few weeks forward so we can tie it in with the earliest days of GDPR application, but we have now completed a full year’s certified compliance with information security best practice.  We still believe we are the only independent pagination service to have achieved this, not surprising to us as it has been a very stringent process.  We’re proud to have been the first in line for such an achievement and all credit to our compliance-minded management team and motivated staff for the push forward on standards.

We’ve been able to answer GDPR and other data protection questions with confidence, as a result.  We’ve noticed increasing attention being paid to information security, quite rightly in our view, and will continue to seek to improve standards and offer our clients the best available secure pagination service.  Apart from that, we’ve noticed benefits in terms of operational efficiency from the internal and external scrutiny of our processes – meaning that we can pass costs savings on to our clients.  So it’s a better service, for less.  We have invested much time and energy over the last couple of years in this area and are actually looking forward to welcoming the external auditor next week…
