It’s been a while since we’ve given you a Blue Octopus biz update – but today we’ve got something great to shout about!
We’re pleased to be able to announce that we’ve recently achieved ISO 27001: 2013 certification, which is recognised worldwide as the standard for information security management. The certification covers our provision of online recruitment and HR services and systems.
To gain the award, we’ve proved that we can both prevent and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities. We’ve successfully demonstrated our comprehensive suite of information security controls and have introduced a management system to ensure these controls remain efficient and continue to meet the needs of both our clients and candidates.
“ISO 27001: 2013 certification is a great achievement for Blue Octopus,” said Digital Director Marc Wrench. “The ISO standard provides a recognised baseline for us to consider the risks associated with providing a technology-based service and enables us to logically document, track, monitor and mitigate them.”
He added: “Having a framework to work to has allowed us to verify the controls we have in place across a broad range of areas, and provides confidence to ourselves, our clients and candidates using our service that we take security seriously.”
