Esoteric, a counterespionage and electronic sweeping company, announced that after a rigorous evaluation of its information security processes, they have been granted ISO 27001 certification by British Standards Institution (BSI).

Protecting information

The accreditation demonstrates the company’s commitment to information security, both of internal data and that of the clients and partners, who entrust them with their valuable sensitive information.

Compliance with the International Organisation for Standardisation's (ISO) strict requirements highlights a commitment to using best practice, providing the clients and partners reassurance with the handling and protection of their information.

"We place the highest priority on information security, our ISO 27001 certification demonstrates our commitment to continual improvement and confirms our policies and practises comply with the most stringent standards," stated Peter Gregg, Operations & Compliance Manager.

ISMS framework

ISO/IEC 27001 is the internationally recognised best practice standard for an information security management system (ISMS). The ISMS framework of policies and procedures includes legal, physical, and technical controls involved in information risk management and covers people, processes, and technology. For more than 100 years, BSI have led the way in standards. They are among the most respected and reputable management systems certification bodies in the world and are accredited by around 20 local and international bodies.

"We recognise that information is one of a company's most valuable assets, any risk to the integrity of that data can make or break a business, security threats impact a company financially, impede expansion, prevent client attraction, damage assets and above all impact reputation," remarked Emma Shaw, Managing Director. When properly managed, a successful information security policy allows an organisation to operate with confidence—something the Esoteric team lives by and advocates for all its clients.
