CDEC has been awarded ISO 27001 accreditation. ISO 27001 was developed to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system.” It includes details for documentation, management responsibility, internal audits, continual improvement, and corrective and preventive action.
Like other ISO management system standards, certification is not obligatory however it ensures best practice is being followed while reassuring customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed.
Spiros Andreou, Service Delivery Manager at CDEC, said: “ISO 27001 accreditation is fantastic for CDEC and for our customers, suppliers and stakeholders. It means we can assure our customers that their data on our systems is secure, and that we take our information management seriously in the age of data breaches, GDPR and the move to Managed Services.”
