Core-Asset Consulting Wins ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 Accreditation
Core-Asset Consulting, the leading financial and professional services recruiter, today announced that it has been awarded ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 accreditation following an independent review from the British Assessment Bureau.
ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It provides security controls and processes to safeguard customers' information, data and other intellectual property assets.
ISO 22301 is the international standard for Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS). It is designed to protect businesses from potential disruption due to unforeseen incidents including extreme weather, fire, flood, natural disaster, theft, IT outage, staff illness or terrorist attacks.
Both accreditations also apply to the company’s vetting and contract services division, Core-Asset Verify.
Betsy Williamson, Managing Director of Core-Asset Consulting, said:
“We take the security and integrity of our clients’ and candidates’ data very seriously. As such, achieving these internationally-recognised accreditations is an important milestone for Core-Asset Consulting.
“With GDPR on the horizon, gaining ISO 27001 is also particularly timely. By demonstrating we are protecting clients’ and candidates’ data properly and following information security best practice, it provides us with an excellent framework towards achieving compliance with EU GDPR in May.
“ISO 27001 means we have the controls, documentation and monitoring in place to be fully compliant. Its ethos of continuous improvement also means we have a culture of data security within our business. After all, information security is not just about technology. It’s also about processes and people.
“Similarly, the ISO 22301 is an internationally-acclaimed standard for business continuity. Clients and candidates can now be reassured that if an emergency incident – such as extreme weather, fire or power outage – denies us access to our offices, the services we deliver will not be interrupted.
“Both accreditations have been the result of an enormous amount of hard work by our internal teams. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them personally for making such a meaningful and enduring contribution to the business.”
