In February of 2016 we received accreditation from the International Organization for Standardization(ISO), which recognised our excellent security management system and procedures. This standard (27001) encompasses data security, network integrety, and risk management.
Through more than a year of work, we set up new systems to comply with the standard, and implemented stringent rules around the handling of clients’ data. As one of only a handful of United Kingdom based translation agencies who adhere to the ISO 27001 standard, our clients can rest assured that every one of their documents is in safe hands.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an information security standard that was published on the 25th September 2013. It supersedes ISO/IEC 27001:2005, and is published by the International Organization for Standardization(ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) under the joint ISO and IEC subcommittee, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27.
It is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). Organizations which meet the standard may be certified compliant by an independent and accredited certification body on successful completion of a formal compliance audit.
