PRESS RELEASE 23/08/2019
Broker Insights, the first independent platform that provides a searchable market view of commercial insurance brokers’ customers, are delighted to announce they have achieved the successful completion of the ISO 27001 standard for Information Security Management Systems. This world-class certification awarded by Certification Europe reflects Broker Insights’ commitment to data security, business continuity, quality of proposition and customer service.
ISO 27001 is the internationally leading best practice standard for information security management and operations. Certification Europe assert that ISO 27001 was developed to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system”.
The ISO 27001 certification project was led by COO Sandy Cairnie and supported across the entire Broker Insights team.
Sandy Cairnie, COO Broker Insights, explains why this certification is so important to the business, their customers and partners.
“Achieving the certification was the first step in our ISO journey, which is a continuous process of review and improvement.”
“I’m confident we have the right processes, systems and skills in place to continue to meet the standard and surpass the expectations of our customers by delivering a first-class service that is innovative and secure.”
“It took over a year to prepare and a serious investment in people, processes and systems to pass the external audits and this achievement is testament to the dedication of our team, and our agile approach to development, design and operations.
“The knowledge we have gained and will continue to acquire through the ISO process is something we can pass on to our customers to ensure operational efficiency and business continuity from the application of technology and data.”
Michael Brophy, CEO of Certification Europe and industry-leading expert in ISO 27001 added, “A number of high-profile hacks and data breaches around the world in recent times has brought the issue of information technology security to the forefront of the world’s attention.
“Now with international regulations such as GDPR the management and protection of data is a growing concern for clients and stakeholders alike.”
“Having achieved an ISO 27001 certification, we are confident that Broker Insights has demonstrated their commitment to maintaining the confidentiality of its clients’ data and protecting this information from misuse, corruption or loss.”
“Their clients can be comfortable in the knowledge that Broker Insights provides best practices for information security management.”
