Iso? Aye, so? What is ISO27001 and why does it matter?
You may have heard earlier this year we appointed Adam Rae Issacs as Head of Compliance following a period of consultancy with us. So-called “Iso Adam” is a Chartered Quality Professional with experience across defence, construction, medical, and software industries, impressive, right?
And we are pleased to announce that this week, thanks to Iso Adam, Odro passed ISO 27001 Stage 1 and will proceed to Stage 2 later this year!
You’re thinking… What? What in the world does that mean?
Stage 1 of ISO 27001 is completed on-site at HQ to determine whether your Information Security Management System meets the minimum requirements of the Standard and is ready for a certification audit. During this stage the auditor points out any areas of non-conformity and suggests potential improvements that could be made.
So what does this all mean for you? Why should you care? Adam filled us in: “We’ve implemented a security and awareness training programme, investing time and resources, to ensure our staff adhere to best-in-class security awareness principles. This in itself will act as one of our most effective layers of defence.
On top, in the coming months, we’ll be implementing a Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software tool within the business which will strengthen our defense further as we work toward the highest level of accreditation.”
In other words, your data is in the safest possible hands.
