Raising the Bar: Sentry Funding Secures ISO 27001 Certification

We are excited to share that Sentry Funding has achieved ISO 27001 certification!

This important milestone highlights our ongoing commitment to safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our clients’ data, extending across all areas of our business.

Back in October, we wrote about the growing importance of keeping client data secure and confidential in the digital age. In response to this, we have implemented comprehensive policies, processes, and procedures, subject to rigorous and recurrent audits by a UKAS-accredited certification body.

The overarching goal of ISO 27001 is to ensure “the right people have the right access to the right information at the right time”. This is crucial in litigation funding, with multiple parties collaborating around sensitive case data.

We are firm believers that “security is only as strong as its weakest link”, and that’s why our ISO 27001 certification covers every aspect of the Sentry Funding Portal service.

Here are some key areas we’ve been audited against:

  • HR: Our approach to hiring, onboarding, and offboarding staff
  • Supplier Management: Our processes for screening, onboarding, reviewing, and offboarding suppliers
  • Remote Working: Our measures for ensuring the security of (e.g.) home working environments
  • Risk Management: Our strategy for recognising, managing, and remediating risks
  • Incident Management: Our approach to handling security incidents
  • Access Control: Our methods for managing and controlling access to systems and data stores
  • Information Transfer: Our practices for securing and tracking the transfer of data
  • Training & Knowledge: Our approach to training staff and ensuring continual improvement
  • Vulnerability Management: Our strategy for recognising and responding to reported vulnerabilities
  • Business Continuity: Our measures for ensuring the ongoing availability of the Sentry Funding Portal

If you are a client of Sentry Funding and have any questions about our approach to information security, we’ll always be happy to discuss these with you.

Additionally, UKAS offers a useful CertCheck service for validating a company’s ISO 27001 certification. When using this service, it is advisable to review the company’s “Scope of certification” to gain insight into the specific aspects of the business that have been audited and certified.

We are pleased to have completed our ISO 27001 certification under the guidance of AxisOps, our trusted technology partner.
