Information security platform Hicomply has joined the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Tech Partner Programme.
Part of RICS’s global professional network, the programme is a collaboration platform for innovative data and technology organisations across the globe.
Partners on the programme join forces to produce thought leadership, content and market insights, and initiate conversations about data and technology. Through its Code of Conduct, the Tech Partner Programme requires these global providers of technology and data in the built environment to follow appropriate international standards, act with honesty and integrity, provide a high level of customer service, use data responsibly, show respect, and to actively support diversity and inclusion across the sector.
The Hicomply platform will support organisations working to comply with the RICS rules of conduct and key information security standards like ISO 27001, SOC 2, PCI DSS, GDPR and more.
Ed Bartlett, CEO at Hicomply, said: “We are delighted to join RICS partner programme and to open up the Hicomply community to include RICS.
“The property sector transacts and manages valuable information assets associated with a £250 trillion asset class. Protecting that data is becoming critical to all parts of the sector.
“We look forward to working ever more closely with RICS and ensuring our platform helps property professionals meet data and information security standards which are a core part of the RICS rules of conduct.”
Andrew Knight, RICS, said: “It’s superb to have Hicomply on the programme and we look forward to working with them on joint thought leadership and supporting their work to raise data and information security standards that are critical to our members and their clients.”
