We are pleased to announce that we have now been certified by the NQA to ISO27001, an internationally recognised standard relating to information security.

If you saw our previous news article you’ll already know that we are certified to Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. The addition of ISO27001 further demonstrates the commitment we have to ensuring we meet the very highest information security standards.

It was identified early last year that gaining certification to ISO27001 would not only benefit AFD, by helping us improve our information security controls, but would give increased peace of mind to our customers, such as BAE Systems and Airbus Helicopters UK, who quite rightly demand high information security standards from their supply chain. They can be confident that we are working in a way that protects the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our mutually valuable data.

Cyber-attacks such as phishing and ransomware are becoming more common. ISO27001 ensures we have the systems in place, and we equip our employees with the knowledge and mindset to minimize any potential data breaches.

The information security landscape is constantly evolving and to stay one step ahead we can’t stand still. As a business we have embedded continuous improvement within all of our processes.

By embracing change, and maintaining agility and flexibility, we can ensure we continue to not only meet, but exceed the expectations of our customers.
