ISO 27001 accreditation for MTS – we are serious about information security

We have been independently audited by BSI (British Standards Institute) and accredited to the ISO 27001 standard for our information security management.

Information security management covers a wide range of issues within a business. Everything from physical site security, through computer passwords to handling post is included.

Steve Bennett, Head of IT and Security at MTS, said; “We wanted to ensure that our work to protect all the different kinds of information within the company is as robust and comprehensive as possible. We have produced new policies, procedures and guidance notes as well as a new Information Security Handbook for our staff.

Steve and external consultant Clive Sweetingham reviewed and updated all our documentation on many topics including network access control, physical access to our head office site and how to handle information security incidents. Steve said; “We began work in February and we were worried that the two audits would be cancelled due to Covid-19, but BSI organised it all remotely using video calls.

The Stage 1 audit was in May and the final Stage 2 audit began on 24 June and ran for five full days.

The auditor tested employee knowledge around these issues through a series of staff awareness interviews. The members of staff interviewed demonstrated a good understanding of the processes and procedures we already have in place and those that we intend to roll out company wide.

Steve said; “The Stage 2 audit was topped off, with a virtual tour of Stanley House, with me wandering around site with the auditor watching through my phone as if she was a visitor to site. We finished the Stage 2 audit with a total of nine minor non-conformities, these are small issues that we can easily correct, and the auditor was more than happy to recommend us for certification.”

The ISO 27001 accreditation joins our existing accreditations to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. You can see all our certificates of accreditation on our downloads page.
