Airhead Achieves ISO 27001


Earlier this year, Airhead Education was very pleased to achieve the Cyber Essentials accreditation, a key deliverable of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme. Whilst it’s an excellent achievement and reflects our commitment to the security of information held by Airhead Education on behalf of our customers, we wanted to push on to the next level.

The internationally recognised ISO 27001 standard was developed to provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.

For the last 6 months, we’ve been working towards our ISO 27001 accreditation with the leading Certification Body, the British Assessment Bureau. We’re now very pleased to announce that Airhead Education has earned the right to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau ISO 27001 certification mark to demonstrate its conformance to the standard.

So what does that actually mean? Well, it means that our systems and procedures have been externally audited and have achieved the required standard, demonstrating that your information is safe with Airhead Education!

Well done 2016 Bett Awards winners!

This time last year, we were sat nervously waiting to see whether we’d won a Bett award or not. In the end we were successful and unashamedly jubilant about it. We know exactly what it’s like. I’m happy to say in 2016 we had a much more relaxed experience, living the dream vicariously through Twitter from a very comfortable, remote location.

Our congratulations go out to all the winners of this year’s Bett Awards and to help spread the word, we’ve created a launchpad of all the companies or products that were successful. The ‘Innovation in ICT’ Bett award has been a real boost for Airhead and so we know the winners will justly reap the rewards of last night’s success.

Congratulations and enjoy the rest of Bett 2016!
