Data security compliance is a significant overhead for any financial services firm. While you are trying to focus on your business, you need to keep one eye on ever-changing regulations. Critical information security and compliance outsourcing arrangements with third parties must be conducted with careful oversight and contingency.
Maintaining financial services information security isn’t just about protecting your business. It’s a key part of your data security compliance obligations.
Working with a third-party supplier who has poor security standards could open your organisation to new threats.
With Lanware’s approach to Information Security & Compliance, you can outsource your IT compliance with confidence, using compliant services that will lower your risks – not increase them.
An independently assessed security system
Our Information Security Management System (ISMS) is audited by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and certified to the ISO 27001 standard – an internationally recognised best practice management standard for information security. Only one in every 2,500 UK private sector businesses have achieved such a high standard.
The key principles of the ISMS are:
The context with which we operate, including internal and external factors and relationships with third parties.
The active role of leadership, with accountability for information security and the Managing Director having overall responsibility.
The 114 security controls that protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
How employees are trained and tested in information security.
The continuity and contingency plans that ensure security in the event of a disaster.
How we monitor, measure, and evaluate our security to ensure it meets the appropriate standards.
The continual improvement of the suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness of the ISMS – a core principle of ISO27001.
