We’re delighted to announce that Peachy Mondays is now ISO 27001 certified!

In acquiring this internationally recognised certification, Peachy Mondays has demonstrated its commitment to data protection and information security.

ISO 27001 is amongst the most widely recognised and internationally accepted information security standards. It identifies best practices for a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS); a system of processes, documents, technology and people that helps manage, monitor, audit and improve organisational information security. The ISO 27001 outlines how organisations should manage and handle data in a secure manner, including appropriate security controls to reduce risks.

ISO 27001 certification is awarded to organisations that demonstrate appropriate data security protocols and satisfy an external audit of security implementation.

Peachy Mondays co-founder James Anderson said, “It’s great to have been awarded the ISO 27001 certification. Our commitment to clients’ and users’ data security is very important to us and being ISO 27001 certified is our next step in continually developing and improving our service for them.”

What is the ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a systems standard that defines requirements for information security management. In the main, it outlines a governance structure that companies have to adopt, from determining what is in-scope or out-of-scope for your system, and assigning security roles and responsibilities, to security planning and risk management activities, as well as improving the system itself. ISO 27001 also details reference controls relating to areas like cryptography, operations security, asset management, incident management and more.
