The official title of the standard is 'Information technology - Security techniques - Information security management systems - Requirements' which is again another mouthful.
"Virtual IT are pleased to announce that we are ISO 27001 certified!"
Although not easy, getting certified is straightforward when your security standards are as high as ours have always been. The difficulty is in remaining certified, so at Virtual IT, we ensure compliance with the ISO 27001 standards at all time and apply it throughout our business, every single day.
This means that our customers can be sure we take a systematic approach to managing their sensitive company information so that it always remains secure. This includes our people, processes and our IT system.
A couple of examples where ISO 27001 is at the heart of what we do:
As network security is such a high priority, our network monitoring and security systems are operational 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Our software is configured to notify our IT support team of any immediate issues so that we can be proactively addressing any issues in some instances before you are even aware of them.
To enable secure reliable communication with our clients' sites we have implemented an enterprise-wide VPN solution that allows secure communications between our data centre, our service centre and the machines at your office and located remotely.
You can see we take security very seriously!
Don't be fooled by IT support providers saying they are ISO 27001 'compliant'. That just means they follow the guidelines as closely as they can but self-certify themselves.
Being 'certified' means an independent auditor from an accredited body has been into Virtual IT and ensured that everything we do for our customers meets the required security standards.
"And we have a certificate on our wall to prove it!"
