Vero achieves coveted ISO 27001 Standard

7th April 2017

Vero Screening is proud to announce it has been awarded the internationally recognised Information Security Management Standard ISO 27001.

The company passed the independent assessment conducted by the British Assessment Bureau with flying colours, with not a single non-conformance (major or minor) being noted.

The award, which gives Vero the right to display the coveted quality shield and ISO 27001 logo, is testament to the company’s commitment to keeping its data, staff and premises secure.

At a time when data security breaches are constantly in the news, it sets Vero apart from its competitors and provides clients and candidates with valuable reassurance that their information is in safe hands. Mobile Phone operator Three, Tesco Bank and accounting software firm Sage are just three high profile companies who have recently fallen foul to hackers or had their data compromised – while the Information Commissioner’s Office dealt with over 16K concerns about data protection in 2015/16.

“Our achievement of the standard has been a huge team effort and is recognition of the high priority employees across the business place on adhering to the data protection policies and principles that are so critical to the work we do,” says Georgina Wilson, Head of Service Improvement.

With the solid foundation of ISO 27001 now in place, Vero plans to continue developing and improving its information security systems.

“Information security and data protection remain at the heart of everything we do and at the forefront of all of our minds,” says Georgina Wilson. “We will be constantly evolving, improving and auditing our systems in order to provide the best possible service to our customers.”
