Leading facilities management provider, Servest, has been awarded the latest ISO 27001 accreditation for information security management. The certification is an internationally recognised standard that ensures organisations apply a framework to business processes, helping to identify, manage and reduce risks to information security.
The accreditation considers not only the IT infrastructure, but also encompasses all relevant business operations. The achievement demonstrates Servest’s commitment in meeting compliance requirements, as well as adhering to standards necessitated by an increasing number of clients, particularly within government and the public sector.
To achieve the certification, Servest’s compliance was validated by the British Standards Institute (BSI) after evidencing an ongoing and systematic approach to managing and protecting company and customer data, as part of an extensive two-stage audit process of internal procedures.

This has been a key strategic objective for us that has meant we are increasingly being recognised as a real innovator in the FM market.”
Rob Legge, Group CEO at Servest, commented: “Servest has always acknowledged the importance of information security and we’re dedicated to maintaining our high standards in this area. This is a great recognition for us, and will significantly help in meeting our customers’ compliance requirements.”
