“The business benefits from ISO/IEC 27001 certification are considerable,” said Phil Jones, ITS business manager. “Not only do these standards help ensure that our security risks are effectively managed, but our adherence to the standards transmits an important message to our customers and business partners. ISO/IEC 27001 plays a very important role in the monitoring, review, maintenance and improvement of our information security management system. It will give other organisations and customers greater confidence in all the ways they interact with us.”

The ISO/IEC 27001 certification will support ITS’ business growth and objectives by providing a competitive business advantage and assuring its customers that the data they have entrusted to ITS is protected by a strict set of globally accepted information security controls, minimising the risk of data loss.

ITS offers a reputation for commitment and quality built on over 50 years of IT services. It is backed by the financial stability and investment of its parent company, the global data services business Reynolds and Reynolds. These high standards and financial stability allow ITS to invest in a nationwide network of IT engineers and set of managed data services.
