FISC Announces ISO 27001 Accreditation

FISC’s commitment to managing information security and potential security risks has been formally recognised as meeting the rigorous assessment criteria of ISO/IEC ISO 27001 : 2013 from 10 October 2018.

Managing Director, Simon Young, said “ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognised and internationally accepted information security standards.  Information security is of the utmost importance to FISC and to our clients and business partners, so having FISC’s information security standards independently audited and certified as compliant with the ISO 27001 standard demonstrates our steadfast commitment to managing and protecting our information assets and in turn company and client data.”

“This is just the start of the journey for us. Our dedication to continually improving the security offered by our Information Security Management System (ISMS) for the benefit of all interested parties will now be the subject of annual surveillance to ensure that we maintain our ISO 27001 certification and full re-certification every three years.”

Using a top-down, risk-based approach, ISO 27001 identifies minimum requirements and specifications for a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS). Information is one of the most valuable and critical assets to a business in today’s world, and certification to ISO 27001 provides external parties with confidence that industry best practice has been implemented.
