Orbit Group has just been awarded the ISO27001 accreditation for information security by the international business standards company BSI, making the housing provider one of only 500 companies in the UK holding this level of information security.
The focus on gaining the accreditation is a result of more services being available online and greater mobility and remote working by Orbit’s staff, both of which could pose data security problems without the right information security processes and procedures.
David Leach, director of technology and transformation, said, “This accreditation is testament to Orbit’s attitudes to information security. We are aware that as our staff get more mobile, so does our information and we want to put the measures in place to keep that information safe and secure.
“Orbit can now assure customers that they are operating in a safe and secure environment and taking information security seriously.”
