Elevating information security: virtualDCS achieves ISO 27001:2022 recertification

In an evolving technology landscape, ensuring the security and integrity of data is paramount. This is why we’re proud to announce that virtualDCS has been awarded its ISO 27001 re-certification, to the new 2022 standard, after another rigorous assessment conducted by BSI.

With the scope of supplying “The provision of safe and secure Business Continuity and Infrastructure services”, virtualDCS led by its internal ISMS team, takes a unique approach to the certification – empowering its employees to own and manage their own ISO 27001 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) within the framework.

Richard May, CEO of virtualDCS explains: “ISO 27001 shouldn’t be a tick-in-the-box exercise and by taking this approach we ensure that data security is central to everything we do as a business and that it is always front of mind. This, combined with the accreditation itself offers both our customers and partners the peace of mind that we not only meet the industry standards for information security management, but we exceed them.”

This latest recertification underscores our commitment to providing secure and reliable cloud solutions and as we celebrate this achievement, we remain focused on enhancing our services, staying ahead of the curve, and providing organisations with solutions that not only meet their current needs but also anticipate and adapt to their future challenges.”
