This encompasses that robust systems and processes necessary to maintain information security and continuity of service and operations are guaranteed between our two local datacenters.

The Preparations:

ISO 27001 & 22301 is a daily task. Internally the organization is confronted with processes for everything. But it comes with a cost — the cost of transformation and commitment to follow through set policies and procedures. It brings in the perspective of information security & business continuity on everything that happens within our organization. It engages all functions of our organization from Commercial Affairs, Operational Affairs, HR to Finance. This requires commitment from all the departments of our organization for the ISO 27001 & ISO 22301 to function correctly.

The Main Benefits of Certification:

  • Trust and Security: As your Trusted ICT partner we ensure our services are safe, reliable and redundant. Being ISO certified not only draws in customers but also International business partners that help deliver innovation driven ICT solutions.
  • Improved Productivity: Complying to the ISO processes, structures, policies ensures our company from repeating errors and this helps increase our inner productivity which also helps our customers stay efficient.
  • Well-trained and dedicated employees: We ensure all staff is aware of our policies and thereby understand relevant processes, and that managers control this as part of their duties. We are committed to providing our customers and partners with the highest level of information security, business continuity and reliability, with respect to management of exposure to disruptions to their business.

To continuously provide an excellent and high-quality service to our customers, continuous investment and development in a state-of-the-art infrastructure and expert staff is one that will undoubtedly be continued.

We will therefore continue to undertake the necessary actions that comply to the ISO standards.
