The official accreditation is the world’s most recognised standard for information security, used to certify companies and their information security management systems.

It recognises the robustness of Commsworld’s systems, ensuring their customers information is pro-actively managed to the latest levels of security and protection demanded of businesses in the modern digital world.

ISO27001 was awarded to the Edinburgh based Communication specialists following a review by external auditors lasting 9 months, endorsing the security and strength of the company’s data policies and processes.

Ricky Nicol, Chief Executive, is delighted with the new accreditation seeing it as an extremely important endorsement of the business.

He said: “Service standards and quality are of the utmost importance to us. We endeavour to provide only the best expertise within the industry and as such invest a great deal of time, money and resources to ensure we do so.

We are proud to have many recognised accreditations as well as awards for our contribution to the industry and this one in particular is very special as we believe there are very few firms of our size in Scotland who have received it.”

He added: “Gaining ISO27001 signifies an extremely important step for us commercially as it will allow us to show recognised security credentials to business who insists on that level of accreditation, therefore opening the door to a number of potential new clients who we believe could benefit from our expert services.

There are also many other benefits as it will allow us to retain and reassure current clients, reduce some costs such as insurance premiums and therefore increase our profitability.”

Commsworld can also boast in-house ISO expertise in the shape of John McDermott, Head of Service & Operations, he revealed the firm soared through the meticulous audit process.

John said: “When the auditors find something that breaches their compliance regulations it’s called an exception and they found absolutely zero exceptions at Commsworld.

I have been working in the ISO field for many years both at Commsworld and elsewhere and I have never heard of this before, which is a phenomenal result and an indication of the high standards we insist on.

The accreditation is a fantastic pat on the back to everyone here, but more importantly should send out a very reassuring message to all our current and future clients.”

Commsworld, founded in 1994, is Scotland’s leading Unified Communications specialist and Network Provider, providing customers with a full range of integrated communications solutions.

The firm offer a flexible ad-hoc service that is tailored to their clients needs and proudly boasts its own network, the only indigenous Scottish network of its type, serving Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

This means businesses located next to a Commsworld enabled POP can benefit from quicker access to data without it being bounced through servers in London or Manchester, which is the case with more traditional bigger providers.

ISO27001 is the Internationally recognized standard for information security. The latest version has been updated to reflect the demands of cloud based businesses and is awarded following formal assessment of a company’s policies and practices for managing data and communications.
