ISO has become essential to IT Providers

13 Nov, 2017

In a guest article provided by EBC Group Limited, they explain why ISO certifications are essential for the IT sector.

 

ISO 27001 for Information Security Management has become the standard that all cloud service providers should challenge themselves to attain and maintain. EBC Group place considerable importance on being accredited to ISO standard in order to provide our clients with the additional confidence required to host their mission critical systems with us. Being able to provide externally audited, best practice, demonstrates our commitment in providing customers with an efficient and reliable service, that we are continually looking to improve.

The ISO 27001 standard provides the framework for an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS). It sets out the policies and procedures needed to protect an organisation and includes all the risk controls and provides an effective way of ‘establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system.’

Managing Director Richard Lane commented “The accreditation highlights that EBC Group are able to protect our client’s data and manage the availability of sensitive information. It demonstrates that we have IT security management systems and controls in place to combat cyber-attacks and other threats to data integrity and our private cloud offers the highest levels of protection to our clients.” He added EBC Group has a commitment to best practice and gaining the highest level of accreditation within IT Security. Our ISO 27001 certification, alongside ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems as well as Cyber Essential Plus sets us apart from many of our competitors.”

The ISO certification enables us to demonstrate our ability to meet customer requirements and gives them the trust that our data centres are secure and reliable. We are dedicated to improving and developing our processes to best support our clients and certification enables us measure and asses our performance, providing a benchmark of our service delivery in turn helping to improve our services.

EBC Group provide a wide range of cloud services, including Infrastructure as a Service and Disaster Recovery. Our privately owned twin data centres provide a secure and reliable way for our clients to host their services in a private cloud environment.
