GoReport demonstrate their commitment to protecting customer data
Vertical Structure helps GoReport gain ISO27001 certification
GoReport delivers smart and innovative software for surveys and inspections to capture, publish and analyse data in the Built Environment. The digital data capture and reporting software allows surveyors to capture site data quickly and easily using a mobile device, then upload the data to the web portal to edit, review and analyse before publishing high quality reports. Vertical Structure has helped the team at GoReport navigate the process to achieve the internationally recognised information security certification ISO27001:2013, which demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to ensuring the protection of its customers’ data.
Security has always been a priority for GoReport. They take their responsibilities as a software provider very seriously and attaches great importance in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of customer information. For instance, the software already holds NCSC’s Cyber Essentials certification, showing that its defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks. GoReport is also an approved supplier on the G-Cloud framework, which demonstrates that they have the high security and compliance standards required to deliver cloud services to public sector organisations.
Getting ISO27001 certification was the logical next step for GoReport, emphasising their ongoing commitment to information security. The internal teams are focused on delivering product roadmap, customer support, business development, business support functions, etc. To make the process as efficient as possible, GoReport enlisted the support of Vertical Structure. Keith Anderson, an experienced ISO27001 specialist would work along side the GoReport team, making the process as efficient as possible.
