Winscribe Achieves ISO 27001 Certification
Winscribe has received ISO 27001:2013 certification, the highest possible standard for information management systems.
Winscribe, leading provider of digital dictation, speech recognition and clinical correspondence solutions, today announced that its European division, Winscribe Europe Limited, has received ISO 27001:2013 certification. As the industry’s highest benchmark for information security, this accomplishment signifies Winscribe’s adherence to stringent information security controls for delivery of its world-class speech technology offerings.
The ISO 27001:2013 certification is the latest, most robust family of standards for information security management systems, which specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organisation. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organisation.
The new ISO 27001 certification joins Winscribe Europe Limited’s active ISO 9001 certification, which sets international standards for quality management principles and requires standardization of improvement processes to enhance customer satisfaction. ISO processes are already in place, implemented with their clients and in use by their employees.
“Winscribe is dedicated to the highest standards of information security for our clients and all of our stakeholders, and achieving ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that we are committed to meeting the most widely accepted security management and compliance parameters in the industry,” stated Ian Gibbons, Head of Customer Strategy at Winscribe Europe Limited. “As a customer-led business, end-user confidence is extremely important to us. Winscribe works with a number of NHS trusts, law firms and other organisations where data plays a critical role, and our customers expect their business partners to effectively secure and protect their sensitive information. This certification lets our customers know that we strive for and adhere to the very highest security standards.”
