Open Reality Group Gains ISO/IEC 27001 Accreditation

April 11th, 2016 by Sam Cobley

Keeping your confidential information safe

Information is a valuable asset that can make or break your business and when properly managed it allows you to operate with confidence. We are proud to announce that in November 2015 the Open Reality Group achieved ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management accreditation after a successful audit from BSI.

An organisation can scope ISO/IEC 27001 to cover any set of processes, business areas or systems they wish. Some companies have a very narrow scope, so not all their services may even by covered by the scope of their accreditation. Our scope is wide and covers the provision of consultancy, managed services, hosted IT services using 3rd party data centres and resale of hardware and software for customers own use.

ISO 27001 Logo“We have always taken the security of data very seriously, so I am very proud that BSI have awarded the Open Reality Group ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation for such a wide scope.”

Duncan Little, Managing Director

A word of warning

Our certificate was issued by BSI, a certification body accredited by the national accreditation authority, UKAS. If the body that awarded the certification wasn’t accredited by a recognised international accreditation authority it would lack credibility, because it’s impossible to tell if the audit was performed to valid standards. Therefore when choosing a supplier you should always check the awarding body as well as the accreditation itself to ensure they come from a UKAS accredited certification body.

What is ISO/IEC 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognised best practice framework for an information security management system. It helps us identify the risks to your important information and put in place the appropriate controls to help reduce the risk. This gives you the freedom to grow your business in the knowledge that we are keeping all your confidential information safe and secure.

“Anyone selecting Open Reality as a supplier can be assured that we have an independently audited process to identify and mitigate information security risks.”

Michael Hazell, Compliance Manager
