“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected”. – Steve Jobs
We are delighted to announce that we have been accredited with the ISO 27001:2013 certification.
Whoop whoop with jazz hands! 😊
Having successfully achieved and maintained our ISO 9001 status since 2017, an accredited quality management system which provides a framework that can be used in developing processes through quality improvements; the time has come to step up our expected quality standards to the next level.
Enter ISO27001, (here comes the important stuff)!
What is ISO27001
ISO 27001 is the international standard which is recognised globally for managing risks to the security of information we hold, manage and process.
What this ISO 27001 certificate means to Embridge Consulting as a business is that it allows us to provide our people, our clients, suppliers, partners and all other key stakeholders, with the certified assurance that we are managing the security of your information not only to industry best-practice standards, but above and beyond the normal expectation for secure managed systems.
“We are absolutely thrilled to achieve such an important milestone. This is recognition of the incredible work that our team has delivered achieving this today. Our approach to information security has always been top of our agenda, especially given some of the high profile clients we work with it has been a necessity, however achieving formal recognition through this prestigious accreditation cements our commitment to our quality of service as well as our approach to ensuring our customers can be confident with our robust approach to information security. A huge congratulations to the whole team that have been involved.”
ISO 27001:2013 (the current version of ISO 27001) provides a set of requirements and best practice standards of excellence for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard adopts a process-based approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, maintaining, and continually improving any ISMS.
In a nutshell, the ISO 27001 standard and ISMS provides a framework for information security management best practice that helps us to:
- Protect client and employee information
- Manage risks to information security effectively
- Achieve compliance with regulations such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’)
- Protect the company and its key stakeholders and interested parties
Protecting information is absolutely critical for the successful management and smooth operation of any organisation and it is not only way up on our Embridge ‘must have’ list, but it’s at the heart of everything we do.
