BS10012 and compliance assurance

IT Governance and group companies have been independently audited against the requirements of BS10012 and recommended for certification. As we were already GDPR compliant, and already had a mature management system that integrates the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 9001, it turned out to be a relatively easy step for us to take. The dividends, in terms of providing GDPR-compliance assurance to board, customers, suppliers and investors, are so much greater than the investment required to implement a formal PIMS.

Our in house team did a great job to get us over this line; of course, the fact that we are already providing BS 10012 implementation support to a number of clients gave us a lot of experience to draw on!
