At Warwick International, we treat security with the highest priority; and we’re so confident in our procedures that we’re happy to get them independently audited. We were originally awarded the ISO 27001:2013 accreditation back in August 2016 and are proud to announce we have now successfully been re-certified for another 3 years.
The re-certification process involves an in-depth review of all Information Security processes and procedures along with evidence gathering over several days. It is no longer enough to merely partner with security minded suppliers, such as a certified Data Centre – whilst the this is of course important, the industry rightly expects software providers such as ourselves to incorporate Information Security into everything we do and most importantly be in a position to demonstrate it when necessary.
“It was an intense few days with a thorough auditor. I’m very proud of how the team performed and delighted to get independent confirmation that our processes meet the highest standard of Information Security. However, there is no time to relax. We have demonstrated continual improvement over recent years and that won’t cease moving forward. Information Security is embedded within the fabric of the business and all teams are eager to continue to develop it even further.” Martyn Lawson, Product and Technology Director.
It was important to us to choose the right certification body, as there are many companies willing to simply sell ISO 27001 certification without themselves being validated. We chose BSI as not only as they are UKAS accredited, but because they are the national standards body for the United Kingdom. Like us, they are the best in class and we welcome the challenge of being scrutinised by the best.
“Achieving the ISO re-certification is excellent news.” Said Richard Ward, IT Manager. “Couple that with the penetration testing, Cyber Essentials Plus and IT Health Checks we perform, we have the perfect validation of both policy and procedure & technical controls our customers expect.”
Our internal auditing schedule continues throughout the year ensuring all elements of the business are reviewed regularly. This approach ensures we can have confidence the next re-certification process will also go as well – but most importantly that our customers information is safe in our hands.
