Secura Cloud Services Conform to the Latest Cloud Focused Code of Practice

Secura have now completed the process of aligning our cloud services with the latest set of cloud security guidance released by the International Organization for Standardization under the ISO/IEC 27018 code of practice.

Cloud Information Security Guidance

The code of practice was first published in July 2014 and sets out the controls and guidelines for protecting personally identifiable information (PII) within cloud environments.

This code of practice has created a framework which cloud service providers can use to establish if their current processes, controls and systems meet the necessary data security requirements.

Building Cloud Confidence

This emerging standard has been developed to instil additional confidence in the rapidly growing cloud industry by providing additional personal data processing best practice as a supplement to existing security certifications and guidance.

Although not a recognised standard in its own right, ISO/IEC 27018 has been designed to complement the existing ISO/IEC 27001 security certification and the ISO/IEC 27002 code of practice.

Data Protection in the Cloud

With more and more personal and business data stored within cloud infrastructure, it is vital cloud providers take the necessary steps and precautions to ensure the integrity of their systems and services.

Recent high-profile data leaks and hacks have been well reported in the media and have brought cloud data security concerns very much to the forefront of people’s minds.

Secura has always been incredibly focused on security and the alignment with the ISO/IEC 27018 guidance offers additional assurance of the robust data security processes we have in place within our cloud infrastructure.

Secura CFO, Ed Beaton commented:

At Secura, we are totally committed to controls and processes that conform to internationally recognised best practice through our ISO certifications.

To align our cloud services with the latest ISO 27018 guidance offers our customers additional reassurance that their data is in the very best hands.
