IT Lab has received the International Standard Organisation (ISO) 27001 accreditation, meeting all the criteria and compliance requirements to effectively manage information security for its clients and IT Lab itself.

As an ISO 27001 registered organisation, IT Lab has put in place a comprehensive set of policies and system improvements to manage the security of assets including financial information, intellectual property, employee details and third party information. The accreditation demonstrates IT Lab’s best practice approach to reviewing, maintaining and improving information security to achieve business objectives.

Nick Isherwood, IT Lab’s Director of Infrastructure Services, said:

“Receiving the ISO 27001 certification is another significant milestone on our journey as we seek to continually improve and grow our organisation. Information security is an increasing concern for the businesses, as the threat of cyber security and data breaches become a growing risk across all sectors. We are delighted to have created an information security management system which will enable us to manage information both internally and for our clients, as well as reassure our partners that we comply with the highest industry standards.

“Gaining this accreditation required huge effort from every part of the company and underpins IT Lab’s commitment to delivering the highest quality of service. Being recognised by ISO and IRQAO further validates continuous improvement to guarantee happy customers and that everything we do is baked by our Service Obsession nature.”

In addition, IT Lab has also received re-qualification for its existing ISO 9001 quality management certification. This accreditation demonstrates IT Lab’s ability to drive down costs, increase productivity and boost customer satisfaction through its quality management system. Both the newly-accredited ISO 27001 standard and ISO 9001 are recognised by the International Register of Quality Assessed Organisations (IRQAO).

ISO 27001 is the international standard that describes best practice for an information security management system. To find out more please visit www.iso.org.
