MEDIA ALERT: SystemHost Ltd gains BS7799 standard - highest security award


WHO: SystemHost Ltd, a Carnforth-based managed IT services provider to SMEs (5 to 75 users). Customers include estate agents, manufacturing, construction and civil engineering plus professional services, with availability for all sectors.

WHAT: The internationally recognised British Standard (BS)7799 is the highest security standard that can be awarded. It sets rules about the confidential handling of company data and requires that every employee must place great value on the protection of data. It helps identify, manage and minimise the range of threats to which information is regularly subjected. Being awarded BS7799 is a recognition that the company properly safeguards all employee, customer and commercial data throughout the organisation.

There are less than 400 companies in the UK with this accreditation, and SystemHost is one of the few in the North West. Having the standard confirms that SystemHost has carried out a risk analysis of how it holds data, and has taken all possible steps to eliminate risk. This process includes an examination both of the security level of equipment, such as access authorisation to its secure data suite, and the methods used to protect IT systems. The crucial factor is that employees should attach great importance to the issue of data security.

WHY: SystemHost has proved that it implements this policy in its internal processes and systems. It has met this standard in order to reassure clients of its commitment to data security and means the company follows a method of working to procedures and standards, and is audited on a regular basis. Any company hosting IT services for other organisations should have this accreditation, but not all of them do. For more information on this award and the British Standards Institute visit http://www.bsi.org.uk.

kind regards
