“ISO recertification provides assurance to all our customers that we have controls in place to identify and mitigate potential risks to confidential information. We work hard to ensure that we build trust and credibility in the market so as to inspire confidence among our stakeholders.”
He added that the “recertification serves to test and affirm our commitment to information security at all levels of our business and I am pleased to begin the year with this milestone.”He also expressed appreciation to both internal and external stakeholders for their commitment and steadfastness in ensuring the success of the recertification audit.
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification was first obtained by CSCS in 2015. It is conducted by BSI every three years, and in between, a yearly surveillance audit is done. The next recertification audit comes up in 2022.The audit involved a series of process validation and assurance check of controls with respect to company and client data management.
