Paylink Solutions earns national recognition for data protection efforts
Paylink Solutions is celebrating after being officially recognised for its outstanding efforts in keeping clients’ data safe and policies on monitoring and improving its information security systems.
The team was awarded with ISO accreditation for its compliance within all aspects of IT governance, information handling, data protection and privacy.
ISO 27001 is a standard, which demonstrates an organisations’ ability to develop and deliver outstanding information security management.
Susan Rann, CEO of Paylink Solutions said: “Although accreditation isn’t mandatory, we thought it was an ideal way to prove our acumen when we showcase our services across the lending, buy-to-let and insurance sectors following the launch of our new brand and website.”
Assessors from the British Assessment Bureau carried out a rigorous four-day audit, which consisted of interviews with employees and thorough reviews of all Paylink Solutions’ policies and procedures.
Michael Willey, Lead Assessor from British Assessment Bureau, said: “We were particularly impressed with Paylink Solutions’ information management systems, which not only streamline and improve internal processes, but also benefit those of clients. The way Paylink operates and the plans which are in place in case of a data breach or other emergency situation were also commended.”
Expertise within the team was highlighted too, including the way all procedures are continually monitored, measured and analysed to make sure software systems are delivering the best possible service, and updated to coincide with new regulations, for example the recent introduction of GDPR.
Susan continued: “This accreditation follows months of hard work by all members of the team, and I would like to thank those involved for their outstanding efforts to make the audit a success, in particular, Roxy, Matt, Carl, Rich and Usha.
“It’s a really exciting time for Paylink Solutions, and being recognised for our ability to meet such stringent guidelines is a reflection on our outstanding ability – and provides us with a great selling point when approaching new clients.”
