London | April 2022

Logixal, the technology-managed service provider (MSP) has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information Security Management certification.

This is the most up-to-date international standard for information security for an organisation. Focus is on establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving the security of information and data. 

Information security has become a critical issue for organisations as the risks associated with cyber-attacks and data breaches continues to increase. 

ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 is the international standard that provides the specification for an information security management system. It is a best-practice approach and is a framework that helps organisations manage their information security by addressing three key pillars: people, processes, and technology. The standard ensures that customer and employee data is stored securely and complies with legal requirements such as GDPR. Independent, accredited certification to the Standard is recognised worldwide as it proves a company adheres to best practice requirements in establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving its information security management system (ISMS).  

Achievement of the certification is the result and the successful outcome of an external, independent, rigorous two-stage assessment audit by BSI of Logixal’s Information Security Management System (ISMS).
