HR Solutions achieves ISO 27001 for information security

HR Solutions achieved ISO 27001 certification for our information security management system (ISMS), at our first attempt on 29th March 2018.

 

What is an ISMS?

An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information about people, processes and IT systems so that it remains secure. This is done by applying a risk management process.

Proactive steps for compliance

Greg Guilford, our CEO, said: “We decided last year that with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which becomes enforced in May 2018, we needed to take some proactive steps to not only ensure we were GDPR compliant ourselves as a company, but to also provide our clients with the support and guidance they needed to ensure that their data meets the requirements.

“We embarked on a journey that saw us perform a detailed review of our data security at every stage in the provision of HR services to our customers, including all functions based at and operating from our offices in Kettering, Birmingham, Milton Keynes and London.

“We already had robust systems and procedures in place to protect client data and this ISO 27001 accreditation hasn’t simply been a case of putting new policies and procedures in place. We have actively enhanced our IT infrastructure, trained staff and ensured that our suppliers take information security seriously. We also achieved Cyber Essentials certification in July 2017.”

Committed to ongoing IT security training

In addition to all of this, HR Solutions has implemented an ongoing programme to continually educate its staff through a series of online training and workshops on topics including phishing, malware, social engineering, physical security and the processing of personal data.

Greg added “I was delighted that HR Solutions’ commitment to information security and data protection was recognised. Achieving ISO 27001 is a valid accreditation to help demonstrate compliance to clients in relation to GDPR, as well as provide clients with confidence that we will handle their information in a secure manner”.

Free Resources

HR Solutions have also been running a series of GDPR workshops and webinars to help our clients, and any businesses looking for HR support, to be prepared for GDPR.
