Watkins continues, ‘I am certain that Tribal’s ISO27001-compliant information security management system will support the delivery of their leading education learning and training services and enhance their reputation as a trusted service provider. There is no doubt that they will soon be reaping the business benefits from gaining ISO27001 certification.’
Mike Fegan, Director of Projects (Services) at Tribal, commented, ‘One of the benefits of working with expert consultants from IT Governance Ltd was the speed with which we were able to organise our efforts based around their in-depth knowledge of the standard. This streamlined the process in terms of time spent attending meetings and telephone conferences, and exchanging lengthy and detailed emails.’

Each step required us to understand what was being asked of us, and IT Governance consultants were there to ensure that we were ready.’
