ISO 27001

What is it?

ISO 27001, in simple terms, helps your organization manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to you by third parties as well by managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process.

More information on ISO 27001 can be found here.

Why would I need it?

Having ISO 27001 certification can make a big difference if you are bidding for contracts or tenders. Your company may be exchanging information with others and you may have concerns of the lack of control measures in place. Alternatively it may be a contract requirement or you may be encouraged to have it by your supply chain partners.

Benefits include:

  • Keeping confidential information secure
  • Providing customers and stakeholders with confidence in how you manage risk
  • Having consistency in the delivery of your service or product
  • Managing and minimising risk exposure
  • Protecting the company, assets, shareholders and directors

We said we keep it simple…

We start by seeing what you already have in place and what gaps you have.

Then we agree a plan of action and set some timescales.

We work with you so you understand the process and “de-jargon” it.

We train you and your staff.

We audit the things we’ve implemented and work on areas you still have concerns with.

When you are ready to go for audit, we’re there on the day for support.

We have as much, or as little, involvement with you as you need.

We work on the understanding that you know your business better than we do but we understand systems and ways to improve so we should make a great team.
