Bracknell, 11th February, 2011 - Information security is a critical priority for Redwood Technologies. As part of the company's Quality Assurance programme, it has recently achieved ISO 27001 certification, the global standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).
ISO 27001 is the only auditable international standard which defines the requirements for a corporate ISMS. The standard is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls.
"The security of sensitive company data must be at the top of every business agenda," comments Mike Bailey, Director for BSI Training. "It is particularly relevant in the current climate, where measures such as management system standards can be put in place to minimise the risks."
Matthew Chadd, Senior Project Manager for Redwood, explains that ISO 27001 is particularly effective for organisations which manage information on behalf of others, because it can be used to assure customers that their information is being protected.
"Redwood platforms process and store vast amounts of sensitive data," he says. "Our clients include some of the world's leading banks and financial institutions, as well as UK and foreign government agencies.
"This accreditation demonstrates to our clients and their customers that the information we work with is subject to a recognised global security standard."
