About ISO 27001 and Accreditation

ISO 27001 is the international standard that describes best practice for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation's information risk management processes. ISO 27001 accreditation demonstrates that a certification body has been assessed by an external body and found to be competent to issue ISO 27001 certificates. This gives organisations the confidence that the certification body has the necessary expertise and independence to provide a credible service. UQAS is an internationally recognized certification body specializing in the accreditation of ISO 27001 certification bodies.
