PDMS amongst the world's first to be awarded new international quality standard
31 July 2014
PDMS are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the International Security Standard ISO 27001:2013 by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.
Published in September 2013, the latest ISO 27001:2013 standard is the recognised international benchmark for information security management and supersedes the ISO27001:2005 standard - previously held by PDMS.
The new international security standard places greater emphasis on management leadership, performance and metrics, risk management and stakeholder requirements - with wide-ranging requirements for its implementation, operation and maintenance. PDMS, who also hold ISO9001 and ISO14001, were originally awarded certification to ISO27001 in 2005.
Simon Edwards, Quality and Standards Manager at PDMS commented, "We are very proud to be one of the first companies not only in the Isle of Man, but worldwide and in our industry, to have achieved this new certification. It demonstrates a company wide commitment to provide the best business processes for our clients, as well as our continued investment in remaining at the forefront of information security".
Chris Gledhill, Managing Director at PDMS added, "Achieving ISO 27001:2013 clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to security and protecting data. It gives our customers added confidence that their valuable information assets are secure with us. I would like to thank the team at PDMS for all their hard work in helping us to achieve this new certification".
