KSS CRC retains international standard for information security

15 August 2016

Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company has achieved ISO 27001 re-certification, highlighting its ability to comply with the most stringent security standards and ensure the safety of its service usersí data.

Established by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 27001 is the most widely accepted security standard in the world for information security management systems. Companies that achieve this certification demonstrate that they have the technology, infrastructure and internal processes to comply with these strict standards of how sensitive information is protected.

The British Standards Institute (BSI) conducted a thorough four day audit of various processes at KSS CRC corporate centres before re-certifying KSS CRC for a further three years.

Denise Mason, Audit Assurance and Compliance Manager at KSS CRC, said:

“Maintaining the high standards necessary for this accreditation involves a great amount  of work. Our recent achievement would not have been possible without the efforts of everyone’s continued commitment to security on a day-to-day basis.”

“ISO 27001 certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to ensuring we have the highest standards in place to prevent information security risks across all aspects of our business.”
