Identify Data Loss

Proof of Ownership

Every seed (or data watermark) we generate is unique - giving you 100% confidence in our evidence of mis-use

Deter Data Theft

Giving staff and third parties the knowledge that you have protected your data can lead to less mis-use

Monitor 3rd Party Use

Watermarking allows you to keep an eye on your data - even beyond your organisation's direct control

Information Security - ISO27001

Product Overview
Data Security is now a board room issue, with the Ponemon Institute predicting that 1 in 3 UK retail organisations will suffer a damaging data loss over the next 24 months. Considerable impact on consumer trust, brand and financial damage can happen to companies who don’t take these predictions seriously.

We can deliver a short, typically 1 day gap analysis against ISO 27001; provide a detailed report of the risks your business is exposed to and provide an action plan to address the gaps – including templates and phone based support to enable you to achieve certification.

We can provide more on site help if this is required.

Once you are ready for your formal Audit, your Assessor will make the required arrangements for you to complete the audit and if approved your certification will be confirmed.

You should be able to achieve certification in 3-6 months.
