The team at ExtraMile Communications are celebrating the successful certification of ISO 27001 Information security management, arguably the most rigorous in terms of the standards for its requirements and certainly the most prevalent, given the focus on security, post GDPR.

ISO 27001 is part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards, and defines the requirements of an information security management system. This system is inclusive of people, processes and IT systems, and ensures all assets within these fields remain secure by applying a risk management process. This standard is in addition to the existing accreditations held by the company, ISO 9001 Quality management and ISO 14001 Environmental management, proving its commitment in operating to a set framework to achieve company objectives.

Enlisting the services of recognised ISO specialist, ISO Quality Services Limited, to assist with the implementation, allowed ExtraMile to look closely at all existing processes and procedures to ensure compliance, whilst also receiving constructive advice on the standard as a whole.

Gabrielle Hadley, Managing Director, said: “We are utterly delighted to be one of 40,000 companies across the world who have attained this valuable accreditation, setting us apart from other marketing agencies locally and globally”
