As a cloud service provider it is crucial to follow all globally recognised security and compliance standards. Securstore is accredited with the ISO 27001 standard for both its company practice and data centres. This demonstrates we can maintain and manage data systems according to the standard’s requirements.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is part of the ISO 2700 standards series and is the specification for Information Security Management System (ISMS). Published in 2005 by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and International Electro-technical Commission (IEC), it was formally known as ISO/IEC 27001:2005. The ISMS represents a framework of procedures and policies that vets an organisation’s ability to employ appropriate information security measures from a legal, physical and technical perspective.
What does it mean?
To receive accreditation, an organisation must systematically address information security risks of any nature such as threats, vulnerabilities or outside impact. They must have acceptable means to cope with the risks. This involves adopting the correct design and information security control implementation.
British Standards Institute Audit
Securstore was registered by the British Standard Institute (BSI) in 2006 after a series of strict assessments proved our ISMS in place conformed to the ISO 27001 standard. Since then, the BSI has regularly audited its processes, IT systems and employees to check the high level of compliance has been maintained. These audits have ensured our re-certification by the BSI and demonstrated our continual efforts to maintain the highest working standards for customers.
Our customers benefit from our accreditation because our working practices have been assessed and deemed exemplary. Benefits for users include:
- Vetted credibility and work ethic
- Security measures examined and confirmed
