Why Did Intergy Become ISO 27001 Certified?

As a provider of business critical IT services, our clients trust us to protect their data, and the last thing we want to do is let them down. We have a duty of care to take all reasonable steps to protect our clients’ confidential information.
For us, becoming ISO 27001 certified was about doing the right thing by our present and future clients, by taking concrete and visible steps to improve our security posture. The certification we have achieved applies to our internal policies, procedures and systems, as well as all stages of the software development life cycle (SDLC), our quality assurance procedures, and the hosting services we provide.
It sends a clear message to prospective clients who attach a greater level of importance to security; we understand your concerns, we share them, and we take them seriously.

What is ISO 27001?

Information security incidents have the potential to cause considerable financial and reputational damage to businesses of all shapes and sizes. The ISO 2700 series standards aim to help companies manage the risk of cyberattacks and internal data security threats, ensuring personal data, company data and intellectual property is protected at all times.
What is ISO 27001

The ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s best-known standard for information security. It sets out the specifications for an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) with a view to managing different security controls, regulating the flow of information and achieving central governance. The standard’s bestpractice approach helps organisations manage their information security by addressing people, processes, and technology.

The certification ultimately recognises businesses for demonstrating a high degree of dedication towards making information security a cornerstone of their internal and external processes. It is proof that businesses not only meet regulatory requirements but are dedicated to continued compliance. The road to achieving accreditation is a lengthy but rewarding one, with several considerations across every facet of a business’s operations. To adhere to the standard, businesses need to systematically examine information security risks, mitigate those risks with a range of information security controls and adopt a management process for those controls. Our process for applying and earning ISO 27001 was highly detailed, and we’ve summarised the main aspects of it below.

The Certification Process

Achieving ISO 27001 accreditation was both demanding and extremely rewarding for Intergy. The numerous controls, evidence requirements, and policies that were developed required us to adhere to the highest standards of information security, reliability, and transparency. In applying for our ISO certification, we were audited against 114 specific controls across 18 domains of our operations, and doing so required us to ensure that our existing policies and procedures were updated, clear, and highly secure.
