At Datascan Document Services we wanted to further demonstrate our commitment to clients by achieving certification to ISO 27001 Information Security Management. We are delighted to announce that we have received our certification and have achieved this on our first attempt.
We decided to implement this international standard as we recognise the need for our clients to protect themselves against data threats in the current environment. ISO 27001 enabled us to put a framework in place to implement business processes that helped us identify, manage and reduce the risks relating to information security. Thus protecting our clients against the threat of data theft, breaches of information, hacking or stolen information.
Data theft is a real concern so by implementing processes we can protect our customers’ information throughout the scanning process. This gives them confidence that we will collect, store and exchange information in a secure way. Protecting our clients and ourselves against potential threats such as information leakage is key. By implementing ISO 27001 we are protecting our own data and that of our employees and stakeholders. Meaning we can ensure confidentiality and guard against any data breach.
As Datascan Document Services we have been registered with Irish Data Protection Commissioner for many years so have always had high standards to maintain. With ISO 27001 we have brought that compliance level to an even higher international standard level. Our compliance will ensure are clients are well protected, the new Europe-wide GDPR comes into force in May 2018 so time is limited in which to get sorted.
Implementing this systematic approach to managing sensitive company information means that it remains secure. All aspects of the business including people, processes and IT systems are involved by the company applying a risk management process. Using ISO 27001 we are managing the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details and all information entrusted to us by our clients.
We were already certified to ISO 9001 for Quality Management and now being certified to ISO 27001 means we can ensure that the quality, safety, service and product reliability of our organisation has been safeguarded to the highest level. Independent audits will continue on an annual basis to ensure we remain compliant to both standards.
Datascan Document Services are confident that having this certification will give clients additional confidence in our ability to safely handle their information.
