In November 2019: Global Tax Recovery worked hard to obtain our ISO27001 certificate. GTR is ISO certified by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and operates an Information Security Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO:IEC 27001. GTR has passed many of the most demanding international data and security compliance standards and is ISO27001, POPIA and GDPR certified and compliant.

What Is BSI?

British Standards Institute has been fighting to mitigate mediocrity and complacency to instil excellence in people’s operations. BSI is an organisation whose standards inspire excellence globally. BSI has 80,000 clients in 182 countries.

What is ISO/IEC 27001 About?

ISO/IEC 27001 is all about information security. However, the digital world is ever-evolving. As a result, core business practices are becoming more cloud-based and dependent on technology. Therefore, the BSI ensured that the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management criteria were updated to reflect this evolution. This provides more reliable controls, enabling organisations to address complex security issues, guarantee business continuity, and gain a competitive edge.

What Does This Mean?

You can never be too cautious when safeguarding confidential business information and personal details. Accordingly, Global Tax Recovery has created a solid and organised strategy for managing information with the help of ISO/IEC 27001. Therefore, we have become more robust and responsive to threats to information security. As a result, these strategies help keep our company safe so we can concentrate on doing what we do best while demonstrating to customers and suppliers our commitment to data security. Data protection is becoming more complex as technology use grows. We can lessen the dangers and impact by concentrating on the main risks to our company. Furthermore, third-party certification reassures our key stakeholders that risks are appropriately managed. Becoming ISO certified ensures our clients can rest assured that their information is protected.
