BS 10012 provides a best practice framework for a Personal Information Management System (PIMS) and outlines the core requirements that organisations need to consider when collecting, storing, processing, retaining or disposing of personal records related to individuals. Supplementing Bistech’s long-established ISO 27001 management system, this achievement provides the best possible assurance that their IT and physical security solutions are class leading and without compromise.
Jocelyn Brown, Managing Director at Bistech says, “We have always taken the confidentiality of information very seriously at Bistech. Achieving this high standard affirms our ongoing commitment to our customers, suppliers and employees and the privacy of individuals.”
David Derrick, UK&I Area Operations Manager at Lloyd’s Register comments, “With personal information being the most important asset to many organisations these days, organisations need to implement the appropriate controls to safeguard their data. By Bistech achieving certification to BS 10012, it demonstrates they have implemented the appropriate controls, policies and procedures to protect their stakeholder’s personal information.”
Tim Sparey, Business Improvement Services Manager at Lloyd’s Register concludes, “Being already approved to ISO 27001, the Information Security Management System standard, implementing the BS 10012 requirements was the logical next step for Bistech. By achieving BS 10012 and implementing policies and procedures to protect the personal information they store and process, Bistech has a firm foundation for GDPR compliance.”
