We’re extremely proud to announce Champion Health has achieved the highest internationally recognised security standard: ISO 27001.

“We know information security and privacy is critical both within Champion and for the clients that rely on us. Achieving the ISO 27001 is not an easy process, but it’s well worth it.
“It demonstrates to our customers that we take security seriously and are committed to keeping your data safe. It’s yet another step that we have taken to protect our customer’s information,” remarks Ricky Bailey, CTO of Champion Health.
What are the benefits of ISO 27001 to our clients and users?
The ISO 27001 certification shows that Champion Health prioritise data security and ensures that our information security management provides:
- Assurance with legal, regulatory and contractual obligations

- Protection of critical assets
- Protection of Personal Data as defined by GDPR
We understand that Champion Health is integral to supporting the wellbeing of thousands of employees across the country. For those users, the ISO 27001 certification proves to them that we’re dedicated to security and privacy.
What is ISO 27001?
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is an independent organisation that defines the global standards for security and safety.
The ISO 27001 is part of the 2700 family of standards, which all relate to information security. In particular, the ISO 27001 demands an organisation has an information security management system: a documented process for managing sensitive company information, HR processes and more.
What does being ISO 27001 certified mean?
The ISO 27001 is the only international standard defining an information system security management system (ISMS).
This means the systems and policies Champion Health uses to defend against hacks, data leaks or theft are internationally recognised at the highest level.
By achieving this certification, Champion Health stands alongside Microsoft, Google and Amazon, as organisations who have provably implemented information security best-practice.
During the rigorous certification process, Champion Health has implemented organisation-wide security training, conducted in-depth risk assessments and much more. This was subsequently verified by the British Assessment Bureau – an ISO certification body.
