Qualco UK has retained its ISO 27001:2017 certification by The British Assessment Bureau, having first achieved it three years ago.
ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised framework which helps organisations manage and protect their information assets so that they remain safe and secure at all times. By achieving this certification, Qualco has demonstrated its commitment to data protection and continuous improvement. This is a crucial standard for Qualco with recertification occurring every three years.
The ISO 27001 certification allows Qualco to have an independently verified framework to apply across its business processes which identify, manage and reduce risks to information security and considers not only IT but all business operations.
The requirements cover all aspects of the organisation including senior management commitment to information security, compliance with the GDPR and Data Protection Act, and a demonstrable approach to continual improvement of the system.
Victoria Oliver, Head of Compliance for Qualco UK, commented, “We are delighted to retain this ISO certification from the British Assessment Bureau. Qualco takes a proactive approach to security as data and our customers’ data is pivotal to what we do. As technology continues to grow and evolve in the financial services sector, we work to ensure that our information security controls remain safe and effective.”
