One of the UK’s leading training providers has become one of the first of its kind to secure a sought-after accreditation on managing information security.


Realise has been awarded the ISO 270001

Realise has been awarded the ISO 270001 to demonstrate its ability to provide good security practices in information and data on behalf of employers, learners and its own staff.

A thorough investigation into the systems, procedures and policies around information security was carried out on Realise before it was awarded the accreditation, which is subject to regular reviews through annual audits.

Rebecca Warden, Learner Services Director

Rebecca Warden, Learner Services Director at Realise, said: “We are thrilled to achieve this accreditation as it truly is recognised as the gold standard when it comes to information security.

“Handling information and data on behalf of our learners, employers and colleagues is a crucial part of our success as an organisation and we invest a huge amount in ensuring we are reaching the highest standards.

“It was an extensive process to achieve the ISO standard, as it should be, and it wasn’t simply focused on cyber resilience.

“There were many other aspects which were taken into account, including the safe handling of data sitting in hard copy format and less prominent but still significant elements such as ensuring server rooms have the correct ventilation to operate effectively.

“Achieving this accreditation provides our stakeholders with further confidence in us as an organisation, not only in our ability to deliver first class training provision but also to safely handle aspects around data and information which is a crucial part of any partnership in the modern world.”

Realise demonstrated its ability to securely handle information

In achieving the ISO 27001, Realise demonstrated its ability to securely handle information in all formats, including digital data, paper-based and cloud-based.

It also provided a centrally managed framework to secure all information in one place and an ability to respond to any evolving security threats.

Rebecca added: “Another important aspect of achieving the accreditation was to demonstrate our commitment to deliver education and training to our people around information security and that is very high on our priority list.”
