CVCheck is proud to be at the forefront of information security. Our Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) are designed to satisfy the policies and processes set out in the ISO 27001 framework.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is a non-mandatory global standard mechanism for managing information security and privacy. To achieve accreditation, CVCheck was assessed by an independent accreditation provider to ensure that it has the policies, processes and systems to protect data across approximately 144 different controls. CVCheck achieved ISO 27001 accreditation in 2021.
What external legislation regulates CVCheck’s handling of data?
CVCheck complies with three sets of privacy legislation and one international standard. These are:
- Australian Privacy Act 1988
- New Zealand Privacy Act 2020
- European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- ISO 27001 – international standard for information security management
As a provider of third-party background screening services, we receive, store and interpret vast amounts of data belonging to individuals and organisations globally.
Because of this, privacy and trust are the cornerstones of what we do at CVCheck. Ensuring the protection of our customers’ data is at the heart of our business, and we treat all data with confidentiality in accordance with Australian, New Zealand and international privacy laws.
