CirrusHQ is delighted to announce that the company has achieved ISO 27001 accreditation

ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised best practice framework for setting up and managing an Information Security Management System (ISMS).  In obtaining this accreditation, it demonstrates that at CirrusHQ, we have the right processes and procedures in place to handle a wide range of secure information assets. It also demonstrates that we provide a best-in-class ISMS for the maintenance and control of information entrusted by our customers and partners.


Darren Cornelius Head of Technical Operations commented “At CirrusHQ, security is always a top priority. In a time when security threats are widespread and constantly evolving, it is vital to have best practice security controls in place. Every day, we operate with the goal of providing a secure and reliable service to all our customers. They find tremendous value in centralised security and compliance policies that are enforced across multiple workloads, especially as they transition to multi- and hybrid-cloud infrastructures.”


Customers can trust an ISO 27001 accredited supplier to have taken the required steps, and put the necessary procedures in place, to maintain data security. Also, with an ongoing program of work that is required to ensure they successfully pass each audit, shows a commitment to continued improvement.


James Lucas CEO, CirrusHQ added “Achieving ISO 27001 certification is an incredibly important accomplishment. This certification underscores our commitment to ensuring that our customer and partner data is treated with the utmost integrity in terms of security and privacy. To attain and retain the ISO 27001 certification requires dedication from all our staff and this shows our customers that we are committed to data security and integrity which is hugely important as a Cloud solutions business.”


If you require your Cloud Solutions partner to show they adhere to best practice data security, including GDPR and PECR regulations then you should look to work with CirrusHQ.
