Peregrine Achieves ISO 27001 Information Security Certification
Peregrine Immigration Management Ltd, is proud to announce that we have achieved certification to the internationally recognised ISO 27001 standard for information security management, demonstrating our firm commitment to client data security and confidentiality.
The scope of Peregrine’s certification covers all our immigration consultancy, project, training and software services as well as back office functions within the organisation.
What Is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is designed to help establish and maintain an effective information management system, using a continual improvement approach. The standard lists specific management processes that must be in place to control risks to information systems.
To become certified, a company must implement over 100 mandated controls and undergo a formal audit that confirms that they are compliant with the requirements set forth by the standard.
Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
The British Assessment Bureau, Peregrine's ISO certification auditors, comment:
"ISO 27001, developed as a best practice standard by experts and target users, enables organisations to formalise and verify that risks are properly identified and managed. More importantly, it demonstrates to clients and stakeholders that their information is taken seriously."
Why Did We Do This?
As immigration consultants, we are often entrusted with sensitive and confidential data on behalf of our clients. A growing security concern for our industry is that such data is often shared online. We believe that all companies in our field must prioritise and update their information security policies and procedures for the digital age and we are proud to have taken the lead in this.
Additionally, one of our key offerings to our clients is our online immigration knowledge database, Immiguru, which contains many thousands of hours’ worth of data sourcing and research conducted by our team. As we continue to develop our services and software products, it is of obvious importance to the many clients who use Immiguru that this data is reliably stored and secured.
What Does This Mean For You?
Our ISO 27001 certification achievement underlines our commitment to the security of our clients’ data and the reliability of our software and systems. Our clients can rest assured that data is safe with Peregrine.
