How does OS keep data safe in a complex online world?
Did you know?
We’re now fully certified to industry leading information security standard ISO 27001, which means our information security management systems (ISMS) are designed, managed, and continually improved to the highest international standards. For our customers and stakeholders, it means we have the right people, policies and technology in place to care for the data you depend on.
More specifically it entails:
- A systematic review of information security risks
- The implementation of comprehensive set of risk based information security controls
- A management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet needs on an ongoing basis
And the bigger picture?
A key part of our approach to information security is making sure we’re ready to respond to new and emerging cybersecurity threats, and we work closely with cybersecurity experts across the public and private sectors to stay risk-aware. Indeed, this is one of the main principles of ISO 27001 the effective use of risk to determine the appropriate controls. At OS we have embodied this principle to ensure that we have the right controls in place. We also ensure that security is embedded into everyone’s day job, be that data scientists or developers.
Getting the basics of security right across OS is critical to protecting our colleagues, assets, and information, to help achieve our vision of being recognised as trusted world leaders in geospatial services.
From our complex data infrastructure to the simplest day-to-day task, we’re passionate about developing the right information security skills, knowledge, and culture at every level of OS – and sharing that with our customers and stakeholders. As a world leading geospatial business, the scale, variety, and importance of the data we provide is unique, and information security is embedded into everything we do.
