We’re proud to announce that we have once again successfully maintained ISO 27001 standards for the provision and management of secure data centre, colocation and managed and hosted services in accordance with the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) ISO 27001, as audited by the BSI (British Standards Institute).
We first received this prestigious certification in 2015, after more than a year of procedural implementations, company-wide training, adoption and independent external assessments, and we have now successfully held this certification every year since then. Audits take place by the British Standards Institute every 12 months.
ISO 27001 is the most recognised certification for information security controls, processes and operational information security procedures, and it guarantees that controls and risk treatment measures are in place to prevent and defend against any potential data system vulnerabilities. Companies are awarded the certification following audits by the British Standards Institute.
The certification also ensures that information security controls continue to meet the security, confidentiality and supplier quality needs of clients on a consistent, regularly assessed basis.
Matthew Edgley, director for Teledata said: “We’re really proud to have maintained our ISO 27001 certification for the eighth year running. We know how important it is to maintain a properly functioning ISO 27001 accreditation - not just for us, but for our clients as well. It illustrates our commitment to information security, and being audited by a high quality and well respected body such as BSI really underlines how seriously we take information security.”
ISO/IEC 27017:2015 provides guidance on the information security aspects of cloud computing, recommending the implementation of cloud-specific information security controls that supplement the guidance of the ISO/IEC 27002 and ISO/IEC 27001 standards. This code of practice provides additional information security controls and implementation guidance specific to cloud service providers.
