WightFibre Earns ISO 27001 Certification

In the world of broadband, security is essential. Whether you’re watching movies, working from home, or keeping in touch with family, you need a strong, safe connection every day. People expect flawless service from their broadband providers, and so businesses must establish systems to counter any threats to data integrity. But how can you be sure that the company you pick meets these high standards? That’s where ISO certification comes in handy.

What Is ISO Certification?

ISO 27001 is a worldwide acknowledged benchmark for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). ISO stands for the International Organisation for Standardisation, a globally recognised body that develops and publishes international standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency services and systems. It outlines the requirements for handling and safeguarding information assets like financial data and intellectual property. Obtaining this certification showcases an organisation’s dedication to maintaining information security across the board.

The ISO 27001 Standard demonstrates that a company has a robust framework to help define, document, review, and update security controls, ensuing they are implemented consistently. Achieving ISO certification involves a rigorous process of assessment and checking that WightFibre adheres to the ISMS benchmarks, including the CIA Triad. The CIA Triad is a model that forms the cornerstone of information security within the ISO 27001 framework. It stands for Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability, three key principles that guide organisations in protecting sensitive information.

The Requirements of ISO 27001

Implementing ISO 27001 involves implementing security measures, which are organised into four key themes:

  • Management Responsibility: How WightFibre’s leadership is accountable for the strategic oversight and implementation of security protocols within the ISMS ensuring that all other security measures are effectively governed.
  • Resource Management: How resources such as people, infrastructure and facilities are assigned to ensure the best possible security.
  • Information Security: How WightFibre ensures that its systems and assets remain protected from unauthorised access or loss.
  • Measurement, Analysis, and Improvement: How WightFibre determines if your Information Security Management System is working as expected, facilitating the continual improvement of the system.
