Centralis achieves ISO 27001 certification for information security management

London - 5 April 2012

Robust security, risk management and service availability assured in accordance with global standard

Independent application and desktop delivery specialist Centralis has achieved certification to the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 (ISO 27001) standard for information security management. This means every aspect of Centralis’ operations is documented and based on ndependently-audited internal controls and procedures for managing and protecting information assets. Centralis’ customers are therefore assured that its systems and data are handled in accordance with the strictest international standards that meet corporate governance and business continuity requirements.

Accredited by the BSI and published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ISO 27001 is the only auditable international standard defining the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). It specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and continually improving a documented ISMS within the context of an organisation’s overall business risks. This protects information assets and customers, as well as satisfying the demands of an independent external audit.

“The protection of information is critical, especially for organisations operating in the finance, health, public and IT sectors, says Mike
Williams, Operations Director at Centralis. “We are now one of just a few IT consultancies to have successfully completed the rigorous and thorough certification process. ISO 27001 accreditation provides our customers with the confidence that their information assets are secure and that confidentiality is upheld, with service availability assured because we have all the necessary processes in place to manage risk and comply with all legal, statutory and regulatory requirements.”
