Kays Are Now ISO 27001 Certified!
13th April 2021
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve recently been awarded our ISO 27001 certification. This significant achievement shows that we’re managing your personal data securely so we’d like to celebrate it with you.
As your trusted occupational health, HR and learning and development provider, we take information security seriously. We’re proud to have the ISO 27001 accreditation as another award under our belt. And we promise that we’ll continue to learn and update our skills and accreditations so you can be confident that we’re always providing the best possible service.
What Is The ISO 27001 Accreditation?
ISO 27001 is the international standard of specifications for an information security management system, or ISMS. ISO 27001 accreditation demonstrates that an organisation is able to manage personal data in line with these standards. An independent certification body can then audit the organisation’s ISMS to assess whether it continues to conform to the requirements of the standard.
Although it’s not obligatory, some organisations, as we have, choose to adopt ISO 27001 so they can benefit from the best practice it contains and reassure their customers that they’re following its recommendations.
We’re all becoming more aware of how important it is that our data is handled correctly. As a result, regulators are placing increasing pressure on businesses and organisations to achieve accreditations such as ISO 27001.
As we’re now ISO 27001 certified, we can confirm that Kays Medical conforms to the highest information security standards. This means you can be confident that we’re handling your personal data correctly and securely.
Our ISO 27001 certification is valid for three years. During this period, we’ll continue to manage our ISMS in line with the standards and auditors from the certification body will continue to conduct visits to make sure we’re maintaining information security.
Why Is Information Security So Important?
Any organisation or business that manages personal data must conform to information security standards. Information security can be defined as the practice of preventing unauthorised access, use, disclosure, inspection, modification, recording or destruction of sensitive records and personal information. This information is important to us, and we will always work to prioritise its security.
The internet allows people and organisations across the world to connect at the touch of a button. This brings many positives. However, the interconnectedness of the internet also means that information is vulnerable to cyber-attack. So it’s essential to be aware of potential risks and have measures in place to prevent them.
As technology continues to develop, it’s vital that we stay up to date with the risks that computer hacking, malicious code and denial of service attacks can have. In recent years, these threats have become far more common and more sophisticated. As a result, information security should be paramount for every business.
We’ve always done all we can to protect your sensitive data, and our ISO 27001 accreditation is further proof of our commitment to maintaining its security.
