What is ISO27001?

ISO 27001  is one of the world's best-known standards for information security. It sets a global standard for how organisations should establish, organise, maintain, and continually improve their information security management systems. 

Certification means that Flexischools’ information security management system, which is made up of the procedures, policies and controls we have in place to secure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information (including personal information) in our care, has been independently audited and found to meet this international standard, which is aligned with information security best practices. 

Conformity with ISO27001 means that Flexischools has put in place a system to manage risks related to the security of information we own and handle, and that this system respects all the best practices and principles enshrined in the ISO27001 international standard.
