ISO 27001 Certification

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) increases the pressure on organisations from regulators, clients and the public to provide solid assurance that the way in which they manages their data preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information. Consequently, there has been a rapid growth in certification to ISO 27001 – the international standard for an ISMS (information security management system).

We have helped more than 600 companies achieve ISO 27001 certification, and because we are backed by the team that led the implementation of the world’s first ever ISO 27001-compliant ISMS, we can guarantee certification. Your journey to success starts with us.

Prepare for certification

How long does ISO 27001 certification last?

Once certification is granted it is valid for three years, although the ISMS will need to be managed and maintained throughout that period. Auditors from the CB will continue to conduct surveillance visits every year while the certification is valid.

Much of this has been down to the mentoring and coaching style IT Governance has used to steer us to our goal.”
