S2S continue to comply with ISO 27001 standards as we surpass remote audit
The threat of COVID-19 to companies and their employees has sparked new ways to conduct business operations. Instead of our normal routine visit with BSI auditors, our processes were virtually inspected using online collaboration software, Microsoft Teams.
The Information Security Management audit was a success. We are pleased to announce we passed with flying colours and continue to be certified against ISO 27001 information security standards.
What reassurance does ISO 27001 provide?
‘ISO 27001 monitors a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes’. – Defined by BSI
The ISO 27001 audit determines whether a company’s internal policies follow the latest data security standards. This standard reviews our data handling process for the wiping and destruction of electronic media on-site to ensure we keep customer data protected at all costs.
Furthermore, the standard highlights if we are compliant with information security laws and aspects of GDPR. Being certified shows we keep sensitive information safe and minimise security breach risks.
Clients can feel reassured that IT recycling firms who establish the accreditation take the information security element of asset disposal seriously.
