The International Association of Contract and Commercial Management (IACCM) has adopted ISMS.online, the powerful cloud software from Alliantist, to achieve cyber and information security management success.

President and CEO of IACCM Tim Cummins, explained why it has chosen to heighten its security posture now:

IACCM brings together over 40,000 members from more than 160 countries, across 16,000 organizations.  We like most of our members are seeing increasing challenges around cyber and information security. With growing regulatory privacy demands like the EU General_data_protection_regulation_gdpr”>General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) coming in, the time is right to invest and clearly demonstrate our credentials in this space.

As a global, professional body we understand the importance of certifications and accreditation. As such we have chosen to follow ISO 27001:2013, a well recognised global standard for information security, and will achieve independent certification of that in due course.”

Sally Hughes COO of IACCM explained why they selected ISMS.online.

“We do almost everything online nowadays and have a workforce in different locations.  It made sense to look for an information_security_management_system_-_isms”>information security management system (ISMS) that complements that way of working. ISMS.online offered us that, along with the chance to quickly describe and demonstrate our ISMS works well, saving a huge amount of time over other options.  The cloud platform also enables us to connect in our supply chain so we can demonstrate that trust and assurance extends to our key suppliers as well.”

Mark Darby is Chief Executive of Alliantist.  He commented

IACCM has been at the forefront of innovation and change over many years.  The threats from information security and privacy actually creates great opportunities for contract and commercial professionals to add even more value for their organisations. We are delighted to be working with IACCM on its ISMS goals and look forward to sharing our experiences with the members as part of the wider relationship investments.”
