London, UK - November 1, 2019 - BM TRADA to highlight the benefits of ISO 27001 at Tech Connect Live 

Leading international certification organization, BM TRADA, part of the Element Group, will be providing expert guidance on information security management systems certification at Tech Connect Live.

Aimed at key decision makers from the UK and international tech sector, Tech Connect Live 2019 will be held on Tuesday 19 November at Arena MK in Milton Keynes.

As experts in management system certification, the team at BM TRADA will be discussing the benefits of ISO 27001 certification, with Dom Fullwood on Stand D03 offering specialist guidance.

BM TRADA works across the UK to provide crucial management systems certification, and is seeing an increasing demand for ISO 27001. With a growing emphasis on data protection globally, ensuring certifiable integrity of information security practices is essential for many businesses. The certification is applicable and important to businesses of any size in any sector, with recently introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requiring more stringent measures in the protection of data.


Rob Veitch, EVP Fire and Building Products at Element, said: “We’ve entered an age where more of our personal data is held online than ever before. While this undoubtedly has numerous benefits, it has also resulted in increasingly sophisticated methods being implemented to steal personal information across a range of sectors.

“If a business needs to hold data securely - as most do these days – ISO 27001 certification is the best way to ensure that it is done properly, and offers reassurance to employees and stakeholders. We used to find that ISO 27001 was taken up by organizations with particularly sensitive data, but since GDPR last year we’ve seen a significant uplift in this area. There is much more awareness of data protection and companies are increasingly expected to have certification in place to prove that they are taking it seriously. Data security is only going to become more important to businesses and individuals. Tech Connect Live is an ideal opportunity to speak with Dom and find out the benefits of ISO 27001 and what it could mean for your business.”

Tech-Connect Live is the UK’s largest technology event, and will provide a unique forum for leading technology companies, tech buyers, start-ups, and investors to meet and discuss the key tech trends facing the sector in 2019.
