Brian Davey has recently qualified as an ISO27001 assessor and now conducts formal certification assessments for clients of BSI.
Given our background in data privacy and Brian Davey’s 5-year hands-on experience as a Data Protection Officer in financial services, we have been supporting and advising a number of clients and companies on how to comply with the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Busy times!!
The GDPR has been adopted in the UK and has fostered the new Data Protection Act 2018 which came into force on 25th May 2018.
See https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-act-2018/ for more information.
We have supported another client, this time a Scottish legal firm, to implement an information security management system (ISMS) and achieve ISO 27001 certification through BSI.
We specialise in supporting organisations through the ISO certification process. Great news for one of our clients based in Scotland. They gained ISO27001 certification in less than 3 months from our initial discussion meeting to agree how best we could support them. Great team of people with solid senior management support and excellent focus on building and imbedding the management system saw them cross the line in double quick time.
After 4 years in Princes Street, our business success has meant we have had to relocate a few blocks away to 21 Young Street, Edinburgh.
Fans of author Ian Rankin and the Inspector Rebus books will be interested to know that our new office is in the same street as the Oxford Bar frequented by Rebus.

Brian Davey was interviewed by Finance Monthly for an article covering business continuity management – see transcript which appeared in the November 2013 issue of the magazine.
“The long awaited revised versions of information security standards ISO27001 and ISO27002 have now been launched. This is the refresh at long last of two very important standards which have been around since 2005. Anyone working in information security or who has responsibility for the subject in the organisations they work for should seriously consider getting hold of the standards to understand how these compare with the originals and where work needs to be done to align existing controls, processes and procedures going forward.”
