Manx Telecom has retained the internationally recognised ISO 27001 Information Security Standard and ISO 9001 Quality Standard as a combined certificate.
The company has been awarded a combined certification of ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 9001:2015 following a rigorous assessment by Lloyd’s Register, which is one of the world’s leading providers of independent assessment services and is recognised by more than 50 accreditation bodies.
ISO 27001:2013 is the most rigorous security standard in the world. The certification demonstrates that Manx Telecom has identified security risks, assessed the implications, and put in place systemised controls to limit any damage to the organisation and customers.
ISO 9001:2015 is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the involvement of senior management, a process approach, and continual improvement.
Gavin Quiggin, Compliance Manager at Manx Telecom, said: “The scope of the combined ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certification provides customers for all of Manx Telecom products and services with the reassurance of knowing that the company meets high standards which are independently verified.”
Iain Bell, Security Manager at Manx Telecom added: “Meeting the high security standards set by ISO 27001 gives our customers the confidence of knowing that their information is processed, stored, and controlled in a secure manner.”
Manx Telecom has robust and mature Management Systems in place and has held ISO 9001 continuously since 1994, and ISO 27001 continuously since 2004. The company conducts internal audits throughout the year to make sure its processes, procedures, and controls comply with the standards. External audits are completed by Lloyd’s Register assessors every year, and the certificates must be fully reassessed every three years.
In addition to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard and the ISO 27001:2013 standard, Manx Telecom also holds ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management which is due for full recertification assessment this year. Gavin Quiggin is qualified in all of these areas – he is also an ISO 27001 Lead Auditor, GDPR Practitioner and a Certified Data Protection Officer.
