i4C Technology achieves ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 accreditations
28 August 2019
i4C Technology has been recognised by Global Standard for Commitment to Information Security Management and Processes.
i4C Technology, an industry leading cashflow modelling provider for financial planners has announced it has achieved the global accreditations, ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and 9001. This recognises i4C’s commitment to providing customers with the highest level of information security management. Following an extensive audit process, the certifications were issued by DAS, a leading global accredited certification body.
ISO 27001 mandates many controls for the establishment, maintenance and certification of a company’s information security management systems.
ISO 9001 requires standardised management procedures and reviews to deal with how businesses provide products, services and support to customers.
i4C received the certifications on its first attempt. Further demonstrating the completeness and rigour of our systems and processes.
Mark Harman, CEO of i4C Technology commented:
“Our focus is providing financial planners with intuitive cashflow planning software that is easy to use and comprehensive. From day 1 we have implemented processes and systems that adhere to ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 standards. This accreditation is tangible proof of our high security standards. It underpins the strict controls we have in place. We recognise the critical importance of confidentiality, data security and regulatory compliance. We’ve have invested heavily in making our processes and systems as robust as possible.
It will give customers real confidence that their data is being managed under data protection regulations. It also emphasises that we have procedures in place for how we provide our products, services and support.”
The FCA recommends the assurance of the ISO 27000 series of certification is considered seriously when conducting due diligence on potential third-party technology providers. Using suppliers that don’t have these certifications increases risk and makes being compliant with GDPR far more difficult, and time consuming.
So, the ISO 27001 accreditation is essential and one all technology providers should hold.
