Transition to the new standard further supports the security standards required by Datum clients providing a process driven approach to information security – and including clear requirements to consider all interested parties and their requirements relevant to information security.Commenting on gaining ISO 27001:2013 accreditation, Dominic Phillips, Managing Director, says: “For many Datum clients, the selection of our facility is strongly influenced by the levels of security we offer. Our successful transition to the new information security standard further supports that criterion with a focus on management of risks for both our own and clients’ data.
