Sargent Disc wins World class information security recognition

WFTV’s friends at Sargent Disc, the leading UK provider of payroll, production accounting and production management software to the entertainment industries, has been awarded ISO 27001 certification, the internationally recognised information security management standard.

Laurence Sargent said “Our certification against this exacting standard reflects the excellent systems and processes we have in place, the quality of our staff and our commitment to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the security levels we provide to our customers giving them peace of mind their data is secure with us.”

With cyber crime increasing, the certification demonstrates best practices in managing information security and is an important part of Sargent-Disc’s strategy to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of its customers’ data and information.

To achieve the standard Sargent Disc, aided by Aston Information Security, had to demonstrate to independent external auditors that the company has the highest standards in place to prevent information security risks across all aspects of the business; are committed to best practice and focused on continuously improving.

ISO 27001 is a process-based certification which recognises companies for implementing, establishing, maintaining, and continuously improving their Information Security Management System (ISMS.) The ISO 27001 certification is the most widely recognised security standard accreditation in the world.
