IT Governance Ltd
, the management systems and compliance experts, have announced that they have been appointed by Ely-based audio visual production firm QAV
to assist them in complying with the ISO27001 information security standard and the ISO9001 quality management standard.
QAV has identified that achieving accredited certification to ISO27001 and ISO9001 is necessary to address the management system requirements of its clients and that it will benefit their relationships with stakeholders.
Steve Watkins, Director – Training and Consultancy at IT Governance, says, ‘QAV are committed to achieve ISO9001 and ISO27001 in parallel, through a single project, which means that IT Governance can pull on our extensive management systems knowledge and experience to deliver efficiencies in time and resource requirements to achieve these standards, in comparison to approaching them separately.
‘Our management systems background makes us confident of delivering an integrated management system that really works for QAV; our specialist information security knowledge means that the solution will be pragmatic whilst providing QAV’s clients with the assurances they require.’
Watkins continues, ‘By implementing an ISO27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS), QAV will ensure that it has taken all precautions to minimise risk to its operations, ensure it has cost-effective security and improve the general efficiency of the organisation.
‘The fact that our client already employees robust security processes facilitates the implementation of an ISO27001 ISMS. We are confident, that with the help of our experienced consultant, QAV will achieve certification within the required timeframe.’ adds Watkins.
As ISO27001-certification is increasingly adopted as best-practice information security management by small and large organisations, so more and more companies are being required to comply with the Standard as a basic prerequisite of entry to contractual negotiations.
IT Governance’s ISO27001 consultancy service is designed to take all the hassle away from the client by providing the skills and advice required at a cost the client can afford. The IT Governance consultants are qualified Lead Auditors and have a proven record of supporting in excess of 100 clients through successful ISO27001 certification projects.
Further information about the IT Governance ISO27001 consultancy service is available online, from www.itgovernance.co.uk/iso27001_consultancy.aspx.
ISO9001, the Quality Management Standard, is a best practice standard that guides companies and organisations internationally to implement a ‘best-in-class’ QMS. By implementing ISO9001 organisations benefit from cost savings as a result of operational efficiencies, improved quality management and internal processes, higher return on assets and greater profitability.
IT Governance offers a flexible ISO9001 Quality Management Consultancy Service which can be tailored to any clients’ requirements.
