ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for Information Security which is published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standard provides the framework for an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS).
It sets out the policies and procedures needed to protect organisations and includes all the risk controls (legal, physical and technical) necessary for robust IT security management. ISO 27001 is designed to cover much more than just IT. An important part of the Standard concerns data security across all areas of a business; whether it is online or offline.

It also places heavy emphasis on incorporating sustainability into organisations’ strategic planning, ensuring that organisations’ commitments to sustainability become integral to their existence.
The key benefits of achieving ISO 14001 are:
ISO 9001 is an internationally recognised accreditation for quality control, one that lays down seven quality management principles. It aims to assist organisations in continually improving and monitoring the quality of their products and services, in a way that strikes a balance between an efficient production process and customer satisfaction.

Cobry’s GDPR compliance
At Cobry we are committed to complying fully with GDPR and our customers can be assured that we take great care in protecting their data and keeping our own systems secure. We have been working hard to update policies to ensure compliance.

If not, click below to find out how to sign the new agreement and ensure compliance.
Google's GDPR compliance
Google has created a website with all of their GDPR related content, compliance, and FAQs collated in one handy location. This website details everything you need to know when it comes to Google Workspace and what you can do to become GDPR compliant as a personal data controller.
Please remember that as part of your GDPR compliance with Google you should accept the new Data Processing Amendment.
Data controllers (Google Workspace users) are responsible for implementing appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure and demonstrate that any data processing is performed in compliance with the GDPR. Controllers’ obligations relate to principles such as lawfulness, fairness and transparency, purpose limitation, data minimisation, and accuracy, as well as fulfilling data subjects’ rights with respect to their data. This means that your company must not wait until a data breach occurs, but be prepared and use all appropriate tools and processes in order to comply with the new GDPR requirements and deal with breaches in advance.
At cobry, we can help you secure your business, and reduce the possibility of any sort of breach happening on your systems. Google Workspace has security features and controls that allow you to better control the data within your Workspace environment, such as:
The process of searching and retrieving information in electronic format. It is useful for legal matters and prevents data loss.
Use Vault to track user activity. Robust audit trails let you see searches, message views, exports and more.
Search across your company’s content in Google Workspace, from Gmail and Drive to Docs, Sheets, Slides, Calendar, and more.
