ISO 27001 is the global standard for best practice when it comes to Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). Fertifa follows this framework when it comes to managing and protecting information assets – such as employee data – giving you comfort that our approach to information security is to the highest standards.
GDPR (the Data Protection Act 2018) provides a framework for businesses to follow with respect to the lawful processing of data. Data protection laws state that, as a business, Fertifa must be using your data fairly and responsibility. All employee data is protected and encrypted and is processed, used and stored in line with the GDPR framework.
