Kingdom Security’s operations have been approved to ISO 27001 standards

BM TRADA Certification Ltd, one of the leading global certification bodies, has assessed and audited Kingdom Security and given its approval to the ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management Systems operated by the company.

In a world of ever-increasing reliance on data and information, all companies are at risk of fraud, disclosure and information loss, whether from hackers, viruses, online fraudsters or even simple human error. Adopting ISO 27001:2013 provides organisations with a framework for creating an information security management system which identifies the real risks that the business faces and ensures that it has the controls in place to mitigate and manage those risks.

There are three core principles involved in managing the security of information: confidentiality, integrity and availability. ISO 27001:2013 enables businesses to demonstrate the integrity of their data and their commitment to information governance while inspiring confidence in the client base that all data is totally secure.

ISO 27001 certification also helps protect businesses from increasing cyber threats, verifies that companies properly identify, assess and manage security risks, proves that organisations are committed to the continual improvement of information security, demonstrates compliance with relevant regulation, legislation and industry mandates, provides customers with confidence that the business meets their contractual requirements, gives customers confidence in the protection and confidentiality of their personal information, affords assurance that businesses meet corporate governance and business continuity requirements and also increases new business opportunities.

Scope of the ISO 27001 certification

The scope of certification for Kingdom Security is as follows:

*Provision of security services including security personnel, Reception and Concierge, site-managed commercial cleaning and maintenance, environmental protection, mobile patrols, key holding and alarm response and integrated services (among them investigation and surveillance).

These services are performed by way of the company’s Head Office and Control Room (based at St Helens on Merseyside) and at regional offices located in Glasgow, Bristol, London and Fareham.

The Registration Certificate number is 100 and stands for three years.
