We are hugely proud to have been awarded ISO27001 certification – the highest, most demanding certification in the field of information security management. IT companies increasingly seek ISO27001 certification for their own operations, and larger non-IT companies increasingly require their IT service providers to show that they are certified.

The ISO27001 certification covers Littoralis itself, and our Disc crime management system which is used throughout the country by a variety of crime reduction organisations for sharing information about offenders as well as current awareness among Disc members, and direct-to-police crime reporting.  It confirms that Littoralis applies the highest standards of information security throughout its organisation.

Disc is a unique crime information-sharing system that’s helping drive down low-level crime and antisocial behaviour (ASB) in more than 450 towns and cities across the UK. It empowers communities to ‘self-manage’ low-level crime and ASB, and enables police to work with them to deliver a new kind of effective, joined-up community policing. Each Disc implementation can link together into flexible networks to exchange crime and offender information locally, regionally or nationally.

Chief Executive of Littoralis, Charlie Newman explains “Compared with the types of organisations that usually achieve ISO27001 certification, we’re ridiculously small – so we’re really proud to have achieved ISO27001 certification within five months of the project being started. Big congratulations to Dave Jackson who led this project in-house for us, and thanks also to Aston InfoSec for their invaluable guidance”.
