We are pleased to announce that we have achieved ISO 27001 accreditation, a globally recognised standard for information security management systems (ISMS). This achievement reflects our commitment to safeguarding sensitive information and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
Chris Curtis, our IT Manager, has shown exemplary leadership in spearheading this project and driving it to success. Chris’s dedication and expertise have been instrumental in achieving this accreditation.
“Achieving both ISO 27001 accreditation and Cyber Essentials Plus is a significant milestone for PetroStrat and shows our continued commitment to Information Security. Obtaining these accreditations is a career highlight but I could not have achieved this without the amazing support I have had from the Petrostrat Team” said Chris Curtis, IT Manager at PetroStrat.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised framework for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). It sets out the criteria for assessing and addressing information security risks, ensuring a systematic approach to protecting valuable data.
What this means for Petrostrat, and our clients
ISO 27001 covers a wide range of information security controls, including:
- Enhanced Trust: It strengthens our credibility with clients, partners, and stakeholders, demonstrating our dedication to protecting their data and maintaining the highest standards of information security.
- Risk Mitigation: ISO 27001 helps identify and mitigate potential security vulnerabilities, reducing the risk of data breaches and associated financial and reputational damage.
- Operational Efficiency: By establishing a systematic approach to information security, we are better positioned to streamline our internal processes and ensure the efficient use of resources.
Our Aspirations for Data Security
This achievement is not the end but the beginning of a journey toward a culture of continuous improvement in data security. Our aspirations include:
- Education and Training: We aim to empower every employee with the knowledge and skills necessary to uphold our data security standards.
- Proactive Risk Management: We will continue to identify emerging threats and vulnerabilities and develop strategies to mitigate them.
- Regular Audits and Reviews: To maintain our accreditation and ensure data security remains a priority, we will undergo regular audits and reviews.
