The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has recently passed an ISO 27001 (Information Security Management) Stage 2 Audit in addition to its annual ISO 9001 surveillance audit.
ISO 27001 is the standard created by the International Organisation for Standardization which deals with Information Security Management and is a way of ensuring that information security risks are managed effectively. The standard helps organisations to establish and maintain an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) using a continual improvement approach.
On news that the association’s audits have been successful, CEO, Allen Leatt said:
“Both audits were passed with zero findings which is a major achievement.”
“As a membership organisation we feel it is important to demonstrate that we treat our members’ data seriously and have serious management systems in place: none can be better that ISO 27001 and we are very pleased with achieving this standard”.
“ISO 27001 will help IMCA reduce information security and data protection risks in addition to fulfilling the GDPR and Data Protection Act compliance requirements, in addition it provides a greater level of information assurance overall.”
