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.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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
  • Access Control
  • Information Security Incident Management
  • Cryptography
  • Business Continuity
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Compliance

Focused on FCA compliance

Every Lanware client is FCA-regulated. Unlike other providers, we are solely committed to the demands of compliance across the
financial sector. As a result, we understand, meet, and often exceed the standards established by the FCA.

So you can outsource IT freely, without ever compromising on your compliance.
