Kings Security Systems, in partnership with security specialist consultancy firm Jomu Ltd, has been awarded the ISO27001 accreditation in recognition of its secure and effective information management systems. The leading Yorkshire-based security organisation achieved the accreditation within only five months and to the highest of standards.
Arthur Agnew, Kings’ operations director said: “We are delighted with this achievement that represents a firm commitment to our customers, employees, trading partners and stakeholders that their information, its availability, confidentiality and integrity is protected. Jomu instilled us with complete confidence during what could have been an extremely challenging process. The experts guided us through the entire process methodically and professionally, helping us to achieve the ISO27001 within an incredible time frame; a real credit to the partnership.”
The ISO27001 is a highly regarded and key business certification demonstrating credibility and trust. Kings has implemented heightened management controls to ensure all information is secure and that it adheres to all relevant laws and regulations.
Arthur Agnew continues: “The accreditation demonstrates that we are meticulous over all security policies and procedures. We will be regularly assessed to ensure that we continue to comply with the legal, physical and technical standards involved in our information risk management processes.”
In partnership with Jomu, over 650 action points were completed and over 800 pieces of evidence gathered for assessment through a project team consisting of Kings’ directors and managers and representatives from Jomu. The process followed complex, intense and rigorous procedures including information gathering, completion of a new Compliance Management System, training and surveys for over 400 personnel, auditing, pre-assessments and an in-depth four-day assessment.
Kings Security Systems will hold the award for three years, with annual external audits being made to assess and re-certify the accreditation, ensuring strict adherence to rigorous security standards.
