Importance of UKAS accredited ISO 27001 certification

In many cases, only a UKAS accredited ISO 27001 information security management system, as delivered by Hawkstone Consulting, is formally recognised when tendering or seeking approved supplier and contractor status to Government organisations, Utility and Blue Chip companies. Accredited ISO 27001 certification, in addition to meeting contractual requirements, also brings a range of significant benefits to your business when properly implemented.

ISO 27001 ISMS - the Business Case

Your organisation’s information is one of its most valuable assets and, when managed effectively, it enables you to operate efficiently and with confidence. So it is essential that your information is protected and that it is available whenever needed. ISO 27001:2005 certification demonstrates that an organisation protects the confidentiality and integrity of all the information it creates, processes and retains. The implementation of ISO 27001 requirements also raises management and staff awareness of potential internal and external security threats that could lead to a breach of information security. Working towards ISO 27001 Certification will help to protect intellectual property, sensitive data, personal information and valuable customer and supplier records. The security of all this information is extremely important to your organisation, your staff and to your clients. It would also be extremely valuable to your competitors. Achieving an Accredited ISO 27001 Certification will greatly reduce the risk of a loss of information integrity, availability and confidentiality and offers additional tangible benefits such as:

  • ISO 14001Gaining the competitive edge over your rivals
  • ISO 14001Improved staff morale
  • ISO 14001Increased client confidence
  • ISO 14001Compliance with data protection and other information security legislation
  • ISO 14001Reduced risks against hacking and online attacks
  • ISO 14001Identification of potential security threats and their prevention
  • ISO 14001Increased profitability

ISO 27001 Recognised by Business & Government Agencies

The ISO 27001 information security management system certification which Hawkstone Consulting will help you achieve can be UKAS Accredited. This is important as the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the accreditation body recognised by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills. A UKAS accredited system demonstrates that your ISO 27001 certification has been thoroughly and independently audited and approved. Some ISO 27001 certification bodies are not accredited by UKAS. You should be aware that these non-UKAS certification bodies are often not acceptable to major work providers. UKAS accreditation should be considered to be of utmost importance.
