Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) provide a framework of policies and procedures that include a range of legal, physical and technical controls for an organisation’s information risk management process.
As information security is becoming increasingly paramount in businesses, this standard is vital towards proving a business protects client data.
“We’re delighted that we’ve been granted UKAS approval to assess against this critical standard,” said Raymond Clarke, chairman of IQ Verify. “We’ve placed organisational resilience at the heart of IQ Verify, while information security management as a discipline is now very much an integral aspect of business continuity.”
Clarke has also announced that IQ Verify intends to runs a series of Workshops based on ISO 27001 in conjunction with the Institute of Administrative Management (IAM) and other industry partners.
IQ Verify’s achievement of ISO 27001 approval follows on from recent UKAS accreditation for BS 7958:2015 and authorisation from the UK’s Surveillance Camera Commissioner to audit to the UK Surveillance Camera Code of Practice.
Clarke also informed Risk UK: “We expect to make further significant announcements on the development of the IQ Verify Organisational Resilience and Security suites of standards in the coming months.”
