As of March 2024, Ground Control has been re-certified to the Information Security Standard (ISO 27001:2022), on the back of a successful submission and audit.

The accreditation and audit looks at how Ground Control handles data and ensures security whilst complying with GDPR in both systems and behaviours. This includes being able to demonstrate robust systems in places that protect any data and showing that employees comply with the procedures that protect these.

    Officially known as the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management standard, it details the requirements for businesses to securely manage information assets and data to an internationally recognised standard (British Assessment Bureau)

The result of this certification means that customers and employees are protected, and they can be sure that good processes are not just embedded but are understood and actioned. For our clients, it ensures that health and safety and personal data are protected, our systems identify threats, and that we are GDPR compliant.

On this achievement, Chris Howell, CIO added:
Data lies at the heart of how we, in Technology, enable the mission of Ground Control. I am proud that our business continues to show excellence in this field and this accreditation demonstrates to our customers and employees that we can be trusted to handle personal and business data. I’d like to also use this opportunity to thank our technical teams who ensure that the systems in place are not just robust, but are understood by the teams using them.
