The RMS is now ISO 27001 accredited!
We are pleased to announce that we are now certified to the ISO 27001 security standards.
Over the past 2 years, we at the Royal Microscopical Society have been working hard to improve and develop our existing policies and procedures to achieve the ISO 27001 accreditation.
We felt this was incredibly important as the certificate demonstrates that an organisation keeps its assets secure: in our case, this proves that any confidential information we store such as personal addresses and financial information is stored safely and securely.
By assessing the internal and external risks and threats to the Society, we can determine how to effectively risk manage these and implement procedures for a wide range of scenarios. We have planned and secured ourselves against potential threats such as:
- Misuse of Information
- Network breaches
- Viral attacks
After our audit last week, we are deemed to be meeting the standards needed to confirm our stringent security measures and can now declare ourselves as ISO 27001 accredited!View the RMS ISO 27001 Certificate
