CADS, one of the UK’s largest retail planning and data specialists, has achieved certification in ISO 27001


Keeping client data secure

Prioritising information security & risk management 

As part of our drive to deliver quality and integrity to our clients, CADS has achieved certification in both ISO 27001 (the international standard dedicated to information security and risk management) and Cyber Essentials (the UK Government backed scheme helping businesses protect themselves against cyber-attacks).

Best practice and prevention methods

ISO 27001 is one of the most popular information security standards in the world, and as information security threats have grown, so too has best practice and prevention methods.

Cyber Essentials is a scheme designed by the UK Government and industry to help businesses improve their defences and demonstrate publicly their commitment to cyber security. To be successfully certified to this scheme a business must show its IT is suitably secure and meets the standards set by Cyber Essentials.

Compliance controls

The ISO 27001 standard helps organisations protect and manage all their data, and includes compliance controls such as cryptography, information security incident management, business continuity, and system acquisition, development and maintenance.

Defending against attacks

Cyber Essentials addresses the most common internet-based threats to cyber security. The scheme’s focus is on attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill such as hacking, phishing and password guessing.
