Capital Support is ISO 27001:2013 accreditated. This accreditation provides our customers with reassurance of how seriously we take the protection of their data.
Capital Support has invested heavily in its people, processes and systems in order to achieve ISO 27001:2013, and we feel that this investment is justified by the peace of mind it brings to the businesses and individuals that we work with. The ISO 27001:2013 accreditation demonstrates our dedication to information security, not only for ourselves but also for our customers and partners.
We appreciate that our alternative investment market customers’ security provisions are coming under increased pressure from regulators and investors. As governance from regulatory bodies such as the FCA and U.S. SEC continues to rise, so do the expectations from industry suppliers such as Capital Support. This is why we feel that ISO 27001:2013 is an important benchmark for the security of the services we deliver – it’s what our customers need and expect, and it’s what we expect from ourselves.
What Is ISO 27001:2013?
ISO 27001:2013 is an information security standard that helps organisations to identify the following: –
- What assets should be protected?
- What are the risks to the assets and how much risk can you accept?
- What controls do you need to protect your assets?
- Do the controls work?
- Do you carry out a risk assessment in your organisation; do you review the threats and vulnerabilities?
By achieving this accreditation, businesses demonstrate the effectiveness of their information risk management policies and procedures.
