Membership and registrations

At Verifile, the word ‘quality’ is used a lot in relation to the data sources we use. However, our insistence on guaranteeing quality extends further still; to the way we run our business.  As well as being members of several industry trade bodies, we currently have four ISO accreditations (see below) and have been accredited by Investors in People with their Silver Award. We’ve been awarded our Cyber Essential Plus certification, confirming our commitment to data security, and hold the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Gold Award for security screening.

We’re working on more accreditations as we speak; all part of a drive to prove that we have the framework within which data accuracy, integrity and security is guaranteed.
