Simple and secure

We are delighted to announce that Forfront Ltd has been awarded ISO 27001:2013 - the international standard for information security management systems (ISMS). 

e-shot is used on a daily basis by public sector organisations and enterprises to send important communications to millions of private citizens as well as professional audiences such as police officers and other public servants. 

The security of this data has always been our highest priority and we continue to strive for excellence in this respect. The ISO 27001 accreditation is the latest reflection of those efforts. 

About ISO 27001 

Established by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the ISO 27001 certification requires the assessment of an organisation’s information security management controls. 

The ISO 27001 certification establishes a leadership commitment to the ISMS by ensuring proper organisational obligations to awareness, communication, personnel and objectives in relation to our services, in particular the marketing automation platform e-shot.  

Certified activities

Forfront Ltd has been awarded ISO 27001 certificate for the following activities: 

Provision of Marketing Automation Platform and Bespoke Software Solutions

Using the ISO 27001 model we were able to systematise the work we were already undertaking on. By achieving the certification, we can now more effectively demonstrate our commitment to security to our customers and partners.  

Fantastic feedback 

We were particularly proud of the feedback provided by the URS Lead Auditor at our certification audit. The following is directly quoted from the Audit Report; 

“Noteworthy effort:   

  • High level of awareness and understanding of the importance of Information Security from top management to employees   

  • High level of human resource management in relation to information security (Employee handbook, detailed procedures related to employees entering and leaving the company)   

  • Very strict policy in relation to IT support and maintenance (all resources inside the company)  

  • Very detailed and specific IS policies  

Management has clear vision of ISMS development in the future and activities that need to be done. Ambitious but realistic ISMS objectives confirm this” 

Secure solutions for the public sector 

We are delighted that this accreditation will further inspire confidence from our customers and partners that we will meet their needs and expectations for security controls and information handling.  

e-shot is available to procure via various frameworks including G-Cloud and NHS SBS – we also provide development services and bespoke solutions via the DOS framework.  

Although full details of our security procedures and policies are not made publicly available, we can provide additional information on request.
