Flexys Successfully Completes Full 3-year ISO 27001 Security Audit Cycle
We are pleased to announce that Flexys has passed its annual audit and remains UKAS accredited against the standards of ISO 27001 Information Security Management.
Following a rigorous, impartial and independent audit by BSI, Flexys successfully reached the stringent requirements of the standard and is authorised to continue to display the internationally recognised BSI Kitemark.
Flexys CISO, Dr David Scholefield, commented, “With our most recent ISO 27001 audit by BSI Group in April, we’re delighted to have completed a full three-year audit cycle, especially when we reflect on the fact that our auditor confirmed that there were no nonconformities against this gold standard in information security management. This is down to the fantastic team at Flexys, who put security front and centre of everything they do, along with our commitment to continual improvement in securing our customer data and their managed services. The International Standards Organisation will be updating its standard with some well-considered changes around clouded environments and stronger data protection controls, and you can be assured that Flexys will remain at the forefront of ISO 27001 compliance and that we will continue to prioritise information security for the benefit of all of our customers.”
