TSL Education Ltd. today announced that it has been certified to international standard ISO 27001, Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) by the accredited certification body Certification Europe.

Specifically, ISO 27001 is a globally recognised and internationally accepted independent security standard which manages potential information security risks to an organisation.

ISO 27001 certification has become a vital front line tool to combat the current, on-going targeted attacks on educational institutions. In the last twelve months there has been hundreds of educational organisations breached including Cambridge University in the UK, Stanford University and Harvard to name but a few. While these are high profile breaches that are reported in the news there are many more that are not reported on or go undetected for one reason or another.

“Data protection and information security is of foremost importance for TSL Education and ISO 27001 provides a model for the organisation to employ in order to ensure data protection to the highest degree. TSL Education has placed itself above the vast majority of these organisations in the education space by ensuring they follow the very latest best practice in information security systems management.
