CS Lucas has passed it’s yearly ISO 27001 audit for the second year running with comments by the certification auditor, GIC, that our processes have greatly improved. Maintaining our ISO 27001 certification is of great importance to us. We offered a transparent look into the working processes of our Security Management Systems, so as to provide accurate evidence that we are in conformance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards. The team at CS Lucas works hard to ensure we are following the international security standards that our customers and partners expect from our Treasury Management System.
At CS Lucas, we take the risk of cyber security threats and the need to ensure business continuity is maintained, seriously. Thanks to processes already in place – we were able to respond to new working arrangements put in place across the world during COVID-19 quickly. We provide our customers with state of the art, reliable technology – technology that is hinged on our built-in security features such as:
– Data encryption
– Network security and server hardening
– System monitoring
– Logging and alerting
These features are stringently tested and continually enhanced in response to ever-evolving threats in cyber security – this is particularly important given the rise of cybercrimes and databreaches seen during COVID 19.
Our Vice President, Don Escuro says that “With the increase of email malware campaigns that have been reported to hit those working in treasury and payments – it’s becoming clear that all businesses are susceptible to fraud.”
We noted that with the growing need for remote working, security gaps within these environments were likely to increase due to lapses in internal education and compromises in ‘typical’ office-based security protocols would become common practice. Therefore, it became a priority to ensure that our systems were audited during this time. ISO 27001 is the only auditable international standard that defines the requirements of an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a set of policies, procedures, processes and systems that manage information risks, such as cyber attacks, hacks, data leaks or theft. By gaining this certification, users on our end can be confident that their data is protected
