Lanware is Best Technology Outsourcing Winner at Systems in the City 2017

Lanware has achieved Best Technology Outsourcing Winner at Goodacre’s Systems in the City Awards 2017 presentation which took place at Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the City of London.

The awards recognise the leading service and system suppliers to the regulated investment sector and are organised by Goodacre UK a leading business and technology consultancy for the securities industry.

Henry Duncombe MD Lanware said, “As a cloud outsourcing expert we are extremely proud to win this prestigious award for Best Technology Outsourcing Winner. Financial Services face increasing challenges and opportunities when it comes to outsourcing technology, from cyber risks and the cloud, to mobile and shadow IT. Our understanding of this industry enables us to deliver total cloud-based outsourced technology solutions that uniquely comply with regulatory requirements.”

Stephen Pinner MD Goodacre UK said “The pressure on service and system suppliers is intense and shows no sign of letting up with the forthcoming requirements to meet regulatory challenges such as MiFID ll and GDPR. We received 25% more applications for SITC nominations this year which shows how highly respected these awards have become. All nominees and winners are to be congratulated for their work, most of which is done ‘behind the scenes’ to ensure that our investment services operate efficiently”.

Congratulations also go to Lanware's Darrian Marsden for winning the individual Excellence in Outsourcing Support Award.

Data Security
A consistent approach to compliance and security

Working exclusively with FCA-regulated clients, Lanware puts security in the spotlight. Every service we provide, every partner
we select, and every colleague that joins our team - they’re all linked by a focus on data security and protection.

We understand the risks associated with outsourcing and that, ultimately, Lanware could represent a new risk to your data.
That’s why we’ve taken such rigorous steps to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data.

An independently assessed security system

The heart of our approach to security is our Information Security Management System (ISMS), a collection of policies and practices
that is certified to the ISO 27001 standard – the internationally recognised best practice management standard for information security.

The ISMS is built on seven core principles, requirements of the ISO27001 standard.

Context

Nothing happens in a vacuum. We consider context carefully at every stage, looking at everything from internal governance to environmental conditions and trends.

Planning

Detailed planning allows us to identify risks and opportunities, define security objectives, and work to meet them.

Operations

Lanware conducts regular security committee meetings, carrying out operational planning and enforcing the risk treatment plan.

Improvement

ISMS is always being improved at every level – a core principle of the ISO27001 standard.

Leadership

Security roles throughout Lanware are clearly defined, and our top management remains closely involved with ISMS.

Support

Lanware provides competent resources to support the ISMS – with security requirements made clear to all involved.

Evaluation

Lanware monitors, measures, analyses and evaluates information security – and the ISMS is audited both internally and by the BSI.

Fully compliant with ISO27001 controls

The ISO27001 standard defines 114 controls across 14 areas – and the ISMS is regularly audited for compliance with them all.

  • Information Security Policy
  • Operations Security
  • Organisation of Information Security
  • Communications Security
  • Human Resources Security
  • System Acquisition, Development and Maintenance
  • Asset Management
  • Supplier Relationships

  • Information Security Incident Management
  • Cryptography
  • Business Continuity
  • Physical and Environmental Security
