ISO 27001 Recruitment

Our unparalleled industry reputation, market knowledge and network enable us to deliver strategic recruitment solutions with clarity and discretion. Forming consultative partnerships with clients, we operate across EMEA, within vendor, reseller, consultancy and end user.


ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised information security standard.

If your organisation feels like it should be doing more to keep financial, IP, staff, or client data safe, ISO 27001 recruitment is recommended. ISO 27001 training can help ensure your employees know and understand IT security best practice.

What is ISO 27001?

An ISO 27001 certificate isn’t just a piece of paper. Its presence assures customers that their data is safe with your company, but this assurance only exists because the process of accreditation entails understanding and implementing vital information security best practices.

A candidate with an ISO 27001 accreditation should be able to use an information security management system (ISMS) and be better equipped to safeguard a company. An ISMS encourages individuals and organisations to approach data with risk management firmly in mind. Amongst other things, this can include macro-level concerns like business impact, the differences between assessment and evaluation, and information security legislation in the country of operation. It also involves in-depth examinations of methodology, control objectives, and asset and owner identification. This makes ISO 27001 recruitment a top priority for most organisations

Government security (HMG RMADS)

We also recruit candidates for government information security roles, ensuring that these candidates have the right accreditations and are able to work to HMG Infosec Standard No. 2. These candidates understand what a Risk Management and Accreditation Documentation Set (RMADS) is, which is a key part of the government accreditation process, and how to maintain it to government standards.
