IT Governance, the leading provider of information security and ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS) implementation expertise, is delighted to have helped Sigma Systems Canada LP (“Sigma Systems”), the global leader in catalog-driven software solutions for communications, media and high-tech companies, with its implementation of an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS.
ISO 27001 is the international best-practice standard for an ISMS, helping organisations demonstrate to clients, suppliers and stakeholders that they have the appropriate information security controls and processes in place to prevent data breaches and cyber attacks. An ISMS helps organisations implement processes, documents, technology and people to manage, monitor, audit and improve their information security consistently and cost-effectively.
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “We are delighted to have provided the guidance and leadership to support Sigma Systems with successfully implementing their global ISO 27001-compliant ISMS project. Implementing an ISMS involves business-driven risk assessments, which consist of being able to identify and treat security threats according to the organisation’s risk appetite and tolerance. The entire implementation project can take up to a year depending on the organisation’s complexity and size.
“A global ISO 27001-compliant ISMS project such as Sigma Systems’, which covers the UK, Canada, India, Japan and Brazil, can create various challenges, but, if supported by in-house management alongside IT Governance’s expertise and support, successful implementation is guaranteed.”
The Chief Financial Officer of Sigma Systems, Robert said: “Implementing an ISO27001-compliant ISMS demonstrates Sigma Systems’ accountability and leadership in this key area across from our customers. IT Governance has been a strong partner with a complimentary footprint to our global business – critical elements to a successful implementation of our ISMS”.
Implementing an ISMS means Sigma Systems is demonstrating its commitment to good security practices and data protection. The ISMS improves the structure and focus of Sigma Systems’ information security, clearly setting out information risk responsibilities and increasing productivity.
