ISO 27001

WCS currently offer ISO 27001 certification outside of its UKAS accreditation. This allows WCS to be more flexible in its approach and costs will be more competitive as we do not need to take into account high accreditation fees. However WCS understands that some clients prefer UKAS accreditation and we hope to have this in place by the end of 2017.

What is ISO 27001?

The ISO 27001:2013 standard provides the framework for an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS). It sets out the policies and procedures needed to protect your organisation. It includes all the risk controls (legal, physical and technical) necessary for robust IT security management.

Why should my organisation implement ISO 27001?

When you have implemented an ISO 27001 management system you know that you’re compliant with various regulations regarding date protection, privacy and IT governance.  ISO 27001 is the accepted global benchmark for the effective management of information assets, enabling organisations to avoid costly penalties and financial losses.  An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing the security of sensitive information and is designed to identify, manage and reduce the range of threats to which your information is regularly subjected. The standard is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls that help to protect information assets.  By gaining ISO 27001, customer and stakeholder confidence is increased and your company’s reputation is improved, allowing you to stand out amongst competitors.

Why should my organisation apply for ISO 27001 certification?

Satisfactory assessment of your management system leads to the award of a certificate of registration and enables clients to use the WCS logo on stationery and marketing material. ISO 27001 certification demonstrates an organisation’s taking cyber security threats seriously and making every effort to protect your’ s and your clients data.
