Aspen Medical achieves ISO 27001 certification for International Information Security Management Systems (ISMS)
Aspen Medical and all of its subsidiaries globally, has been certified to the ISO 27001 2013 standard.
ISO 27001 is part of a set of standards developed to handle information security and is also referred to as an International Information Security Management System (ISMS). The ISMS preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed. The objective of this standard is to specify the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS within the context of Aspen Medical which includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of Aspen Medical.
Aspen Medical's General Manager for Technology and Information Sanja Marais said, "Not only does the standard provide companies with the necessary know-how for protecting their most valuable information, but we can prove to our clients and partners that we take privacy and data protection very seriously. Because it is an international standard, ISO 27001 is easily recognised all around the world."
The certification process was led by Aspen Medical's Group Quality, Accreditation and Audit Manager, Vinod Gandhi.
Group Chief Executive Bruce Armstrong accepted the framed certificate from Dushyant Sanathara, General Manager - Healthcare, Finance and IT at BSI.
