Hireserve achieves ISO 27001 certification

Cyber-security and data protection is never far from the headlines. We’re working in a world where data threats are increasingly common and security is high on everyone’s agenda.

We are therefore delighted to share that Hireserve, a trusted Applicant Tracking System provider, has been awarded the ISO 27001 certification - recognised worldwide as the standard for information security management.

What does being awarded the ISO 27001 certification mean?

To gain the ISO 27001 award, Hireserve had to meet the stringent standards set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

During the course of a comprehensive audit, Hireserve proved that it could prevent and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities. The business was able to demonstrate that it had a robust set of information security controls, and that it implemented regular checks for security threats and vulnerabilities.

Beverly Usher, Hireserve’s HR Manager, led the efforts to gain certification:

‘We are so happy that we have secured the recognition that comes with being an ISO 27001:2013 certified organisation.

This certification validates the hard work we do to make sure we work within, and provide, a safe and secure environment for storing information - whether that be our clients’ or company owned.

Organisations who already work for us, and those that may be considering it, can now see that we put in practice what we preach when it comes to information security.’

Jeremy Ovenden, Hireserve’s Founder and MD added:

‘Alongside our ongoing work preparing for the GDPR, meeting the ISO 27001 standard has given us the opportunity to distinguish Hireserve as a trusted and reputable business - and ensured that our customers can have confidence in our ability to protect their data.

Achieving ISO 27001 is a testament to our team’s hard work and our positive and pragmatic company approach to protecting personal data. I am incredibly proud that we have been awarded this certification.’
