Information security policies and processes
Mallon Technology are accredited to ISO 27001:2013, our processes are internally audited and we conduct an external audit annually and certified by NQA. All audit activities involving checks on operational systems within Mallon Technology are carefully planned and agreed to minimise the risk of disruption to business processes. All internal audits are performed manually.
All Mallon Technology managers are aware that it is their responsibility to ensure that all security procedures within their area of responsibility are undertaken correctly to achieve compliance with Company security policies and standards. If any non-compliance or non-conformance is identified, managers will identify the cause, evaluate the need for actions to ensure that non-compliance's do not recur, determine and implement appropriate corrective/preventive action and the review the action taken. Further to this, the results of internal quality audits are evaluated and reviewed on a monthly basis at the Company Senior Management Team meeting. A companywide non-conformance log is also completed by all Mallon Technology personnel to identify and highlight any trends that might develop. If so, these are analysed and if possible, mitigated against.
