We’re ISO happy! Because we’re now ISO27001 certified.
ISO…ISO happy! See what we did there? Cough. Composure.
Being ISO27001 certified is something we’ve been working towards for a while. So we’re delighted to now have the accreditation.
But what is it? What’s the big deal?
Well, ISO27001 is the leading international standard for information security.
Most businesses tend to have a number of information security controls in place. But without an overarching Information Security Management System (ISMS), those controls tend to be somewhat disjointed. This is often due to the controls having been implemented over time as specific solutions to specific situations. On top of this, other aspects that contribute towards the protection of information, such as physical security, are usually managed separately of IT or information security. Similarly, Human Resources processes may not clearly define or assign information security roles and responsibilities.
As a result, gaps exist. ISO27001 was therefore developed to help businesses bring everything together. It provides the necessary know-how to protect the information a business holds, in a systematic and cost-effective way. Through the adoption of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). It’s fundamental objective is to protect three aspects of information:
- Confidentiality: only authorised persons have the right to access information
- Integrity: only authorised persons can utilise the information
- Availability: the information must be accessible to authorised persons whenever needed.
Why is being ISO27001 certified important?
ISO27001 is an independent, expert assessment of how we manage information security. Being certified is important to us, because it’s critical for you. Being certified demonstrates that we’ve invested in our people, our processes and our technology (the tools and systems we employ) to protect the data we come into contact with. It’s about trust and delivering peace of mind.
It gives you, and all our customers, absolute confidence that KNP safely and securely protect the data & information we handle on your behalf, to internationally recognised standards. You can work with us on your direct mail, door drop or hybrid mail campaigns and projects safe in the knowledge your data is being managed confidentially and securely.
ISO much more
Security, quality and sustainability are going to become more and more critical, as businesses actively look to work with partners they can trust, and who conduct themselves in the right way. Having management systems and processes in place will help us build strong relationships that deliver for our clients. And they can help us deliver for you.
