Data Protection and Digital Ethics

Enhanced protection for your sensitive data

Data protection and security is at the core of our company, our people and our red.thread® technology.  We recognise that this is of the upmost importance to our clients as well as needing to be fully compliant with the law.

The foundation of our approach is based on our ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System certification.

Our data protection and security certifications

For over 30 years, our senior management team have been working with businesses in a variety of sectors, each with their own specific data protection and security measures.

This extensive experience, combined with a drive to adhere to the highest industry standards, has resulted in us achieving the following:

ISO 27001:2013

Our Information Security Management System (ISMS) is certified to ISO 27001:2013. This international standard is at the heart of our approach and is underpinned by the associated policy, manual and procedures.

ICO Registered

We take our role in controlling and processing your personal data extremely seriously.  Your trust in us is paramount – and so is our commitment to remain ethical and lawful at all times. We are registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) for our processing activities and strive to conduct our operations in line with their best practice recommendations.

Cyber Essentials

Supported by the National Cyber Security Centre, a part of GCHQ, the Cyber Essentials certification means that our IT systems are secure and meet the standards set by Cyber Essentials.


Digital Ethics

Digital Ethics is still an emerging and evolving topic, but we are engaged now and will strive to ensure that what we do with red.thread® technology, the services we offer and the actions we enable are not only lawful, but are also ethical and just.

We are achieving this through our membership of techUK and the piloting of approaches such as the ALGO-CARE framework.

We are in the business of enabling outcomes through actions that are supported by data driven intelligence.

It’s what we do, but actions have consequences….

Right from the original data source, though processing, analytics and user interactions, the resulting intelligence needs to be used appropriately and in proportion to the potential consequences from any action that is taken.


Enabling outcomes,
without compromise

From saving lives to reducing crime levels, our red.thread® technology is already shaping outcomes across private and public sectors
