Southpac Certifications accredited for ISO 27001:2022 Certification

Following a two-year process, Southpac Certifications has been accredited by the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JASANZ) to certify Information Security Management Systems to the ISO 27001:2022 standard.

This accreditation adds to Southpac's existing schemes, including ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems, ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Heath and Safety Management Systems, and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems.

It means current and future clients can now achieve accredited certification for their Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) as a standalone scheme, or as part of an Integrated Management System of Quality, Safety, Environment and Information Security.

Southpac Certifications CEO Andy Shone said they recognised the growing interest among Australian and New Zealand businesses in the Information Security space several years ago, and began the process to apply through JASANZ to add Information Security Management Systems certification to scope.

"Information Security is one of the fastest growing areas of concern for businesses of all sizes," he said. "Particularly after the major data breaches that have seen some of the biggest companies in Australia fall victim to cyber attacks, businesses are increasingly looking to improve data security, and show their customers they take this seriously."

The ISO 27001 standard enables organisations of any kind to manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties. Achieving Information Security Management Systems certification to ISO 27001:2022 allows businesses to benefit from best practice, and reassures their customers and clients that the global standard in recommendations has been followed.

With ISO 27001:2022 now on scope, Southpac Certifications can provide accredited certification, and any clients who have achieved non-accredited certification to ISO 27001:2022 with Southpac will be automatically transferred to accredited certification.
