Mainline Instruments is delighted to announce it has been awarded the ISO 27001 Information Security management standard, demonstrating the company’s commitment to providing the highest quality of security to its customers.

ISO 27001 is the only auditable internationally recognised standard that defines the requirements of an information security management system (ISMS). Mainline Instruments was established in 1997 and provides high quality ophthalmic instruments and accessories to the optical community. 

Jack Hawkins, Business Development Director at Mainline Instruments said: “Achieving certification to ISO 27001 through independent external auditors demonstrates our ongoing commitment to protecting sensitive information and it’s been a great process for our business. 

We are thrilled to have been awarded this prestigious certification which recognises the robust processes and strict protocols we have in place regarding privacy and information security. Our clients can be assured that their sensitive information will be as secure as it can be.”

“This accreditation demonstrates to our customers that we take all aspects of IT and data security very seriously. I’m confident Mainline Instruments will be reaping the rewards of all the hard work in the months to come. It’s crucial that we maintain robust Cyber security controls for our business and our customers. The information security management system (ISMS) is hugely important enabling us to manage our posture through our people processes and technology and has enabled us to increase our resilience to cyber threats by managing our information and systems correctly and effectively.”

Mainline Instruments sought the services of Temple Quality Management Systems, which supported the company in order to implement the standard. Achieving ISO 27001 certification recognised Mainline Instruments high level of security protocols and provides an independent, expert assessment that the information, networks and systems are managed in line with international best practice.
