Industry leading guest WiFi provider WiFi SPARK has cemented its position as an exceptional service provider by gaining the much sought after ISO 27001 certification for Information Security Management.
This internationally recognised accreditation lays down rigorous standards for information security and applicants must prove they have robust systems and procedures in place to satisfy the requirements at all levels within the organisation.
Data security is an increasingly important aspect of business in the digital age and by achieving the standards required by ISO 27001, WiFi SPARK has demonstrated that it is following best practice in securing its business information as well as protecting that of its customers and employees.
The accreditation was awarded following a stringent three-day audit by the British Assessment Bureau, who are a registered auditor with the UK's National Accreditation Body UKAS. The inspection was passed with flying colours and no non-conformances were found.
This award compliments WiFi SPARK's existing accreditation to another internationally recognised standard in ISO 9001 for its Quality Management Systems and supplements an existing certification to the UK Government's flagship Cyber Essentials scheme.
The benefits of certification to ISO 27001 include:
- Proves to clients an organisation keeps their information secure
- Achieve operational excellence
- Minimise risk of potential data security breaches
- Protects reputation
- Reduces errors and costs
- Increases business profitability
- Engage employees
Matt O’Donovan, CEO at WiFi SPARK, said, “The WiFi SPARK team is very proud to have attained the ISO 27001 certification, which is globally recognised as the benchmark in information security. The certification is a testament to our GDPR-compliance and commitment to excellent data safeguarding and confidentiality. Our clients have peace-of-mind knowing that their information is maintained to the highest possible standards.”
