Asset Guardian Solutions Limited (AGSL) is pleased to announce it has successfully achieved the ISO/IEC 27001 standard for Information Security Management, a framework that will allow AGSL to take a holistic approach to secure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of the company’s information assets.
The ISO/IEC 27001 standard is managed by the International Organisation for Standardisation, and the International Electrotechnical Commission, and by implementing the ISMS framework, AGSL will be able to demonstrate a set of policies, procedures, processes, and systems that manage information risks such as cyber security attacks, data leaks, or theft of data.
“This is a major achievement for Asset Guardian.
The team here has worked extremely hard over the past few months to again achieve a fantastic accreditation whilst not interrupting the day-to-day business of the company.
Information that belongs to Asset Guardian, our Partners, and Clients is of the utmost importance to us, and the safe custody of this information was always and remains one of our top priorities. This accreditation gives all our interested parties the peace of mind that their information is well looked after whilst we are its custodians.
I have to say, a huge well done and thanks to everyone involved in both the development and the use of our Information Security System which will allow us to continue to provide safe, secure services well into the future.”
Ewan McAllister, Managing Director at Asset Guardian Solutions Limited
