Information Management software developer, Ideagen, has successfully achieved certification to the ISO 27001 information security management standard.
Certification to the standard is evidence that Ideagen’s information assets such as financial information, intellectual property, and employee details is secure and handled correctly.
Ideagen’s products – including its award winning cloud-based software Coruson and market leading quality and safety management software Q-Pulse – was used as evidence of compliance to the various ISO 27001:2013 standard clauses and Annex A controls. Ideagen’s certified locations include the company’s HQ in Nottingham as well as its satellite sites in East Kilbride, Matlock, Welwyn Garden City and Dubai.
Carried out by UKAS registered United Registrar of Systems, the ISO 27001 audit was passed with no non-conformances received, meaning Ideagen has an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in place which manages sensitive and confidential customer data to internationally recognised best practice.
Barnaby Kent, Group Operation’s Director at Ideagen, said: “As a leading, global, technology organisation we are always looking to continuously improve the way we operate as a business, including the way we handle sensitive and confidential customer data.
“Achieving Group-wide ISO 27001 compliance is testament to this and evidence that we practice what we preach; and that includes using our very own products to not only achieve compliance with international standards, but also that our products do as we say they do – and that’s help organisations achieve operational excellence.
“Achieving ISO 27001 accreditation with zero non-conformances recorded is a fantastic achievement and leaves our customer base safe in the knowledge that we are handling their data with the best possible care."
Ideagen's Continuous Improvement and Quality Manager, Tony McCutcheon, added: "To facilitate the audits, we used our Q-Pulse, Coruson, Gael Risk and Academy products to evidence our compliance to the various ISO 27001:2013 standard clauses and Annex A controls in all locations.
"This further reinforces to our customers that we have in place a strong and secure infrastructure, systems, tools, processes, procedures and controls, which ensures continuing confidentiality and integrity of information and information systems."
