, the global leader in information security and ISO27001-compliance expertise, has reported that its client Workforce Metrics has achieved ISO27001 certification in only three months for under £5k.
Workforce Metrics, an employee relations software provider, joins a group of other clients of IT Governance with fewer than 20 staff, who have successfully achieved accredited certification in the shortest possible time for an affordable price.
Andy Shettle, managing director of Workforce Metrics, said, “The requirement from our clients is to be secure and by planning and implementing an ISO27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS), we are able to offer complete confidence. With cloud deployments increasing, prospective clients are seeking further assurances around information governance (IG) and ISO27001 is an internationally recognised standard, so it was vital that Workforce Metrics achieved this accreditation.
“While Workforce Metrics was acutely aware of the IG ISO27001 standard, we were keen to be led by the experts and so sought the help of IT Governance. Having researched them extensively, I felt very comfortable with their knowledge of ISO27001. This was later confirmed by the expert attention that we received from our dedicated IT Governance consultant.”
Steve Watkins, Director at IT Governance, commented, “The success story of Workforce Metrics is a great example of how a small company can benefit from an internationally recognised information security standard without spending a fortune. It also proves that ISO27001 is truly designed for organisations of all sizes and that it can be a real business enabler.”
Andy Shettle added, “IT Governance helped us to pull the whole thing together in much less time than we had anticipated. I would recommend that if you want the result of UKAS-accredited certification in a timely manner, you should consult IT Governance first! By taking this route, we have gained valuable status in our dealings with existing and prospective clients, and I am confident that certification will help us to gain business by providing the appropriate level of assurance.”
