GeoPlace Achieves Certification to Latest Security Standard

Posted: 29 May 2015

As part of our continued commitment to the quality and security of the information we process, GeoPlace has again achieved recertification to the ISO9001 and ISO27001 international standards, for Quality Management and Information Security respectively.

ISO logos These Management Systems both apply to the 'provision to the public and private sectors of information management and consultancy services, relating to address location information and street information', and cover all the activities we do, wherever we do them.
The last external audit in March conducted by BSI Management Systems (BSI) found zero issues with our Quality Management System (QMS). Our QMS is certified against the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008 through to the end of 2017.
As part of our policy of continual improvement, the audit also certified the successful transition of our Information Security Management System (ISMS) to the latest version of the Information Security Standard BS EN ISO 27001:2013. GeoPlace has been certified to ISO27001 since October 2009, and we are proud to be amongst the first in our field to move to the updated version of this standard.
The latest version of ISO27001 has been designed to speed and simplify the processes used to protect information assets. It also places a greater emphasis on the individual needs of GeoPlace and our customers as well as developing a framework to further improve our detailed risk management processes, further strengthening the protection on our, and your data.
Richard Mason, GeoPlace's Managing Director commentated that "Certification of our management systems to these standards is part of GeoPlace's drive for quality, accuracy and security for all the work we do. Our QMS and ISMS continue to be an essential part of the on-going management of the business and allows us provide a consistently high quality service to our customers that meet the needs and expectations of both our clients and our staff".

GeoPlace is a public sector limited liability partnership between the Local Government Association and Ordnance Survey. GeoPlace's role is to create and maintain the National Address Gazetteer and the National Street Gazetteer for England and Wales, providing definitive sources of publicly-owned spatial address and street data for Great Britain.
