We have reinforced our stringent data security management with the successful completion of the globally recognised ISO27001 Information Security certification. The standard provides a model for establishing, operating, reviewing and improving Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) - providing a trusted framework which ensures our data, and those of our clients, are kept secure and confidential.
Having been officially certified with the ISO27001 standard, we are one of only a small minority of companies in the UK to have achieved the benchmark. As well as demonstrating a commitment to the highest level of information security, ISO27001 provides confidence that our data is held securely and that safety and confidentiality is at the forefront of our business.
The certification strengthens our warranty and current product offerings
"Data is our business; we take information security and confidentiality very seriously. Our clients are also mindful of the importance of quality data management, which is why ISO27001 is vital to Tracesmart. We are proud of all the hard work and effort that stakeholders, management and all our staff demonstrate throughout the year, ensuring we successfully pass each and every ISO27001 audit. We are able to demonstrate and offer assurance to existing and potential clients, that we are totally committed to data protection and information security."
Paul Weathersby, Technical Director
Internationally recognised benchmark for information security
Tracesmart's ISO27001 registration is from SGS, the world's largest inspection body and an accredited UKAS inspection and test organisation, offering totally independent assessment. All our procedures are inspected on a six-monthly basis by qualified information security lead auditors.
UKAS is the only accreditation body recognised by government to assess certification bodies against internationally acknowledged standards that assure the certification body is fit for purpose. UKAS combines technical understanding and expertise with commercial impartiality and a requirement to serve the public interest first. UKAS accreditation provides authenticity and affirmation of our ISO27001 information security certification.
We have further demonstrated our commitment to data security and management with the addition of the DataSeal award. The mark confirms and underlines our declaration to establish, operate, review and improve our ISMS processes.
Issued by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), DataSeal is the only recognised standard for ISMS other than ISO27001. The standard has been refined and developed to reflect the specific information security challenges of both data controllers and data processors.
Tracesmart is audited externally every six months to ensure on-going adherence, allowing the company to provide additional confidence to its clients, staff and stakeholders, and that all its data processing is in-line with the above standards and the Data Protection Act.
