We are extremely pleased and excited to announce that we have recently achieved ISO 27001:2013. ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognised and internationally accepted information security standards. It identifies requirements for a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS).
At Smart IT, security is always a top priority. In a time when security threats are widespread and constantly evolving, it is vital to have adequate security controls in place. Every day, the team operates with the goal of providing a secure and reliable service to all customers.
Smart IT are also one of the few Gold certified ESET and Watchguard security partners in the North East. It is testament to Smart IT’s commitment to our customers security
“This will be ongoing to our business security and development plan with more improvements along the way. Our goal is to build and maintain trust and credibility in our partnerships so that our customers feel confident that they’ve made the right decision in choosing to work with Smart IT. Achieving the highest level of security accreditation has been a real team effort.”Jon Proud, Operations Director
Having a robust ISMS minimises risk, and therefore the possible damage caused by a data breach and consequential costs and reputational damage to customers and the provider.
“Along with our ISO9001 certification, ISO27001 will give us a powerful competitive edge, whilst protecting and enhancing our reputation. It will also be an invaluable resource when it comes to avoiding the financial penalties and losses associated with data breaches.Jon Proud, Operations Director
ISO 27001 allows us to remain agile, making risk-based decisions, potentially adjusting company policies and procedures as the landscape evolves. ISO 27001 offers improved business continuity and greater resilience.”
