bs 10012

Protection of personal information in the world and our country has never been so important. As a current development in Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the Law No. 6698 on the Protection of Personal Data in Turkey can be mentioned. Due to these and other legal arrangements, organizations are expected to demonstrate that they take their privacy management seriously and to document it with certificates. The BS 10012 is the first standard for personal information management, of the UK origin, designed to define the principles of management and processing of personal data in institutions.

The BS 10012 is required in order to perform the policies, procedures and audits required to assist in the management of risks related to the confidentiality of personal data and compliance with the data protection legislation in a discipline recognized by the industry. Information technology companies are -fairly- expected to have this certificate by their customers.

The BS 10012 provides the best implementation framework for a personal information management system in accordance with the GDPR principles. It summarizes the basic requirements that individuals should take into account when collecting, storing, processing or destroying personal records. Easily integrated into other popular management system standards, the BS 10012 adds value to companies of all sizes, including:

  • Helps to identify and manage risks for personal information,
  • Supports compliance with data protection legislation,
  • Allows continuous control and improvement of processes,
  • Strengthens the trust of customers and stakeholders,
  • Maintains corporate reputation.

As Formalis, we are pleased to announce that we have renewed our BS 10012 certificate. The acquisition and renewal of this certification is made possible by strict controls by independent auditors. It is accepted as an important criterion throughout the world in terms of compliance with the laws on information security and data privacy.

Regarding GDPR compliance, there are two standards accepted as the indicator of the framework of personal data protection: BS 10012 Personal Information Management System (PIMS) and ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS). We, as Formalis, hold both of these certifications.

The information security of our customers will continue to be our top priority.
