TGSL achieves ISO 27001

Insurance software provider Transactor Global Solutions Limited (TGSL) has completed a review and assessment set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to achieve the ISO 27001 certification.

ISO27001 is a highly-regarded international standard for information security management, that covers people, processes and information on risk-assessment basis.  As part of the certification, TGSL was required to demonstrate the ability of the business to risk-assess, prevent and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities, implement a comprehensive suite of information security controls and introduce updated management and control systems to ensure the controls remain efficient. An annual audit will be carried out by an external third party to ensure systems continue to meet the stringent requirements set out in the ISO 27001 standard.

Ian Blakesley, CIO, TGSL, said, “We are proud to have achieved ISO 27001 certification, which we hope will assure customers of our commitment to cyber security and data protection. Our trusted hosting providers, which host our production systems, are already fully compliant but the ISO assessment gave us chance to review our processes as a business, rather than limiting the review to the IT department.  We created a cross-functional team from IT, development, HR and operations to work on the standards and develop a framework for monitoring and maintaining the standard going forward.”

“ISO27001 is the first of two key security and quality initiatives we have planned for 2017 and 2018. We see it as an ongoing commitment, and in order to maintain this certification we will be subject to annual audits.”

“TGSL is also participating in the BIBA system resilience project later this month, which coupled with ISO27001 forms a compelling quality and compliance standard to add to our class-leading technology solution.”
