fscom achieves ISO 27001, demonstrating its unwavering commitment to enhancing the security of its information as we continue to work in the new ‘virtual reality’ to which we have all become accustomed.
fscom is delighted to announce that we have been awarded certification to the international standard for Information Security Management, ISO 27001:2013, by independent auditing body, British Standards Institution, BSI.
ISO 27001: 2013, is a risk-based information security standard which provides assurance to boards, business owners, heads of compliance, employees, customers and suppliers that information is managed appropriately and securely.
As the pandemic continues and buzz words such as digital transformation echo around virtual board rooms across the world, fscom’s clients can take comfort in the fact that we are not only saying we have taken steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of your data as we continue to operate remotely, but third party auditors, BSI have tested these systems and can offer independent assurance of the truth of this statement.
Andrew Mills, Chief Financial Officer at fscom who led the ISO 27001 project said:
“To be awarded certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates fscom’s compliance to maintaining the highest possible standards for information security and the security of its clients’ data.
“In addition to the firm’s ISO 27001 certification, fscom has also been recently re-certified under the Cyber Essentials Plus Scheme. This is a government and industry backed standard which protects businesses against cyber threats. Our Cyber Essentials Plus re-certification demonstrates the firm’s awareness of cyber security and provides independent assurance that we have the fundamental technical security controls in place to defend against cyber threats.”
“”Our clients now have certified third-party attestation that the operation of fscom’s information security controls meet the ISO 27001 requirements.
“The process to prepare the organisation, its infrastructure and its processes to be compliant with the ISO 27001 standard was an interesting journey. All employees were involved to some degree in the process, but credit goes to consultancy firm, Quadra for helping guide us through the process and to our IT operations who were responsible for securing and strengthening our already robust IT infrastructure.”
“I commend BSI on a very thorough audit process, it was no easy task, however getting that certificate on the wall was the icing on the cake at the end of a long and scrutinous process.”
Jamie Cooke, Managing Director at fscom said:
“At fscom, we constantly work to add value to our service proposition for our clients. Quality and integrity are part of our core values. For our clients, this means delivering consistent high-quality advice from consultants they can trust. While we have invested heavily in developing a technology infrastructure that is able to support virtual delivery, the ISO 27001 certification is an important milestone in our journey and it shows our dedication to our clients of our continual investment in the field of information security.”
“Achieving the ISO 27001 certification is a result of uncompromising systematic work of every member of the fscom team.”
ISO 27001 is a globally recognised standard from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) for the establishment, maintenance and certification of an information security management system (ISMS). Achieving the ISO 27001 standard certifies that fscom has the requisite information security controls in place to demonstrate its commitment to providing clients with the highest level of information security management.
