Solving the ISO 27001 time issue using ISMS.online
Achieving ISO 27001 can bring a whole lot of growth to an organisation. Running an efficient Information Security Management System (ISMS) demonstrates to your customers, supply chain and potential new business relationships that you take information security seriously, (just as everyone should).
The certification can open up new doors and possibilities in the business world but is often placed in the ‘too hard’ or ‘too time-consuming’ box by many busy organisations. That is until now!
During a recent ISMS.online ‘kickoff’ webinar with one of our newest customers we received really enthusiastic feedback on the benefits of the platform and, as it’s not dissimilar to what we hear from other happy customers, we asked if we could share it to inspire others like them
Think Evolve Solve is a specialist data company based in Dublin, that helps organisations all over the world to understand the potential of the data they hold. Their own TES Data Platform also gives business users the tools to connect, share and analyse data in a smart and efficient way.
This high-end consultancy is focused on achieving ISO 27001 certification and like many organisations, implementation needs to fit in with ‘business as usual’. Founder and Managing Director, Thomas Russell, recognised that Think Evolve Solve needed more than generic policies to achieve ISO 27001 and needed a solution that would easily facilitate efficient implementation.
“We’re a progressive, agile and paperless business and we’re not just looking for an ISO 27001 certificate, we want our ISMS to reflect the way we run our business.
It’s why we knew that buying an off-the-shelf document toolkit was not the way to go.
We’ve already got many of the policies in place, we just need to ensure they meet the standard, fill in any gaps, and improve efficiency in how we manage our ISMS on an ongoing basis.”
Think Evolve Solve also understand the importance of security in the supply chain and wanted to ensure this was integral to their ISMS. Being paperless, they wanted to make sure it could all be managed in one online environment with dynamic and interactive tools for risk management and other processes.
“We solved all of the above and more. ISMS.online makes managing ISO 27001 and the GDPR so much easier. It has really simplified the approach – The platform has everything structured for you already.”
Think Evolve Solve has also adopted the ISO 27001 Virtual Coach package “the Virtual Coach is a great addition … the team and I have access to expert guidance every step of the way and can access it where and when we want. It means we can work at our own pace to ensure we reach our goals as quickly as we can…and at a fraction of the cost of other solutions”.
We wish Think Evolve Solve all the best with their ISO 27001 and GDPR achievements and will keep you updated on their progress.
