The dealer spent six months working towards the accreditation

Excalibur
Communications has been awarded an ISO 27001 certification for best
practice in information security management systems.

This certification
provides a common set of policies, procedures and controls that
companies can follow to manage risk to information security.

It is widely
acknowledged as a badge of credibility and trust, and helps firms
become compliant with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Strategy

To gain the
accreditation, Excalibur spent six months introducing a wide range of
procedures and policies to ensure it met the requirements.

It is estimated that
fewer than 100,000 UK businesses have achieved ISO 27001
certification among a total of around four million, according to UK
government figures.

Excalibur CEO Peter Boucher said: “As a technology business offering cyber and data security to customers, it’s important for us to take a lead in having the very best information security management systems and being noted for it. By gaining ISO 27001, we have achieved this.”

“We are not only
effectively managing risk within our own businesses, but are also in
a position to meet the new levels of compliance demanded by new and
existing customers who, of course, take security matters seriously.”
