Volcanic achieves top industry standard with ISO 27001 accreditation
Global recruitment technology firm Volcanic announces today it has achieved ISO 27001, the world’s most rigorous and well-regarded standard for information security management.
This badge of excellence means Volcanic has achieved the highest standard of information security, in support of the world's recruitment industry.
Rob Wilde, CEO at Volcanic, said: “Information security takes on new significance in our GDPR-regulated climate of data privacy, illustrated once again by yesterday’s reported Dixons Carphone data breach. Companies expect consistently secure technology as well as an ongoing commitment to protecting their data, and their customers’ data.
“It’s never been more important to secure the data and the operating systems throughout every organisation. Cyber-attacks have become more prevalent and sophisticated, supply chains are increasingly complex, and the volume of important information handled continues to increase.
“Companies are looking for the ISO 27001 badge as a stamp of international best practice. Essentially, if you have achieved ISO 27001, you know you are operating above and beyond the requirements of the GDPR.
“We are thrilled that the incredibly high standards we set ourselves in delivering technology and service excellence have been independently validated through ISO 27001, in recognition of our best practice.
“We first took the strategic decision to become accredited by gaining the well regarded ISO 9001 standard in 2016. Now, we’ve stepped up a level. Our company growth is testament to this. We have experienced double digit, year-on-year sales growth for the last three years, and have more than tripled headcount.”
Volcanic gained ISO 27001 certification following an extensive audit of its Information Security Management System, which underpins the Volcanic operation. Every decision the business takes involves understanding the risks around how introducing a new person, product, feature or process could affect information privacy and security.
This latest accreditation underlines the Volcanic culture of continuous improvement, reinforcing its commitment to information security and focus on maintaining industry-leading practices.
Rob concludes: “It is testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole Volcanic team and I’m incredibly proud of everyone.”
