London-based social media consultancy Carve Consulting LLP has achieved certification to the international information security standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
An award-winning digital consultancy that works with some of the world’s leading organisations, Carve Consulting selected IT Governance’s innovative consultancy solution that delivers the entire project via online consultancy.
The IT Governance ISO 27001 ‘Get A Lot Of Help’
consultancy package enables organisations to get guidance from an ISO 27001 implementation specialist throughout the project, without the associated expenses of hiring a consultant to do all the work.
Kate Halls, head of talent & operations at Carve Consulting, explains why the company chose to get certified to the Standard: “We believe that the best and easiest way to demonstrate to our clients that we are a trusted provider is by achieving certification to ISO 27001. ISO 27001 lends us greater credibility over competitors when tendering for new contracts, even in instances where the Standard is only a preference, rather than a requirement.”
ISO 27001 is used by leading companies all around the world to manage and control information security risks; to protect and preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information; and to establish an information security management system (ISMS) that can be continually improved.
Including a blend of training courses and tools, the online consultancy package is delivered live and online through a combination of Skype, telephone calls and emails.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says: “We are delighted to have assisted Carve Consulting with their ISO 27001 ISMS implementation process. Achieving certification to this international standard is a remarkable achievement for any business, and Carve Consulting is leading the way for other social media consultancy firms to follow suit.”
Carve Consulting LLP was awarded its ISO 27001:2013 certificate on 6 November 2015 by certification body the British Assessment Bureau.
