Facilities and property management provider, Bellrock has achieved certification to the revised ISO 27001:2013 standard.
The new standard requires organisations not only to understand and assess the risks relating to hard copy and electronic information and the management of that data, but to assign ownership to nominated individuals for ensuring information is secure.
Bellrock is responsible for the integrity of both personal data and sensitive property and facilities management information. Having achieved ISO/BS 27001:2005 two years ago, Bellrock planned the transition to ISO 27001:2013 as the new standard provides a robust framework for applying best practice across the IT development, supply chain management and operations teams.
Chris Weston, chief technology officer, Bellrock commented:
“Data and information protection is critical to our reputation. Clients and suppliers trust us to hold and manage their information securely, achieving ISO 27001:2013 is not only proof of that fact but systemises our approach establishing accountability and an audit trail for every aspect of our business.”
