After a week long audit by the NQA who are a global certification body and external auditor, we have successfully maintained our ISO 27001:2013 accreditation!
Last week, we had an auditor come in to inspect and interview us over the course of 5 days. The audit covered how we manage your information, how we protect your data such as tackling cyber crime, personal data breaches, security and compliance procedures.
As we all know after GDPR last year, your privacy and data is of utmost importance, so how we store it and who can have access to this information needs to be scrutinised.
The auditor came in to observe our work procedures for the entire week to ensure that we comply with the international benchmark standards. After going through some very strict criterias and rigorous questioning, we were absolutely thrilled to be told today that we passed!
So following our recent success in retaining our Lexcel accreditation at the end of December 2018 and beginning of January 2019, we are happy to announce our retaining of the NQA ISO 27001 accreditation in March 2019!
