How ISO 27001 helps with GDPR

how ISO 27001 helps with GDPR datascan

GDPR is now part of the lives of all Irish businesses.  Not only are we aware of its existence, most organisations have now implemented changes to work towards compliance.

Datascan were always conscious of data protection regulations and we saw GDPR coming on the horizon some years ago and knew it was time to get ready.  In 2017 we were delighted to complete our certification for ISO 27001 (information security management).

ISO 27001 and GDPR

While GDPR focuses on protecting and managing personal data, ISO 27001 ensures the systems are in place around this.  ISO 27001 concentrates on creating an information security management system to prevent data breach or data loss.  It also ensures the security of data by having the processes in place to identify any issues or report anything necessary.

This international standard includes guidance on how to ensure personal data is processed in a secure way.  We had to look at the management of personal data, our own and that of our clients.  Our data processing systems and their integrity were examined with encryption processes all explored in great detail.

Risk Assessment

A data breach for any organisation would be an issue, for us it could be a disaster.  Risk assessments and how a breach would be handled was top of our agenda.  Now with tried and trusted processes in place we can give our clients all the reassurance they need when it comes to the security of their data.

Safe & Secure

By allowing Datascan to take your data in the form of paper files so they can be scanned and converted into digital, you will have helped your compliance with GDPR.   Having the knowledge that you are working with an ISO certified business that takes security of your data seriously, you can have peace of mind knowing that your data is always safe with us.
