As of December 2023, NPIT is ISO 27001 certified. This certification demonstrates that our services meet the highest possible standards for data security, minimising the risk of data breaches or cyber security incidents.
At NPIT, we are dedicated to keeping security awareness a priority across our procedures and practices.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is the global standard for effective ISMS (Information Security Management System). The ISMS includes the processes and procedures that manage security risks, such as cyber-attacks, hacks, data leaks or theft. In addition, it is a common requirement in Europe and is recognised as the highest standard in information security.
This certification demonstrates that we at NPIT take information security seriously. We have the processes and systems in place to protect sensitive data, including personal data and financial transactions.
Why is ISO 27001 important?
According to Research Live, “…in 2023 data breaches cost UK businesses an average of £3.2m, – the two major causes of data breaches are phishing ( 16%) and stolen credentials ( 15%). These breaches allow hackers to steal customer data, infect networks with malware, and launch denial-of-service attacks that can take a business offline”.
As a Managed Services Provider we can demonstrate that, not only is information security our priority, that we have the best security practices in place for your critical information
The benefits of working with an ISO Certified MSP.
Mitigate security threats and cyber-attacks.
As an MSP supplier, an ISO-certified company is constantly monitoring their performance and making sure that their systems and processes are always compliant with highest international standards. In addition, this certification demonstrates robust Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) plans in place. Therefore, in the unlikely event of a crisis, these plans ensure minimised disruption and downtime for your customers and employees.
When you choose an ISO 27001 certified company, you demonstrate your own commitment to international cyber security standards and ensure the protection of your information assets.
Protect your reputation.
If you contain any sensitive information for your clients, you can show your own customers, partners and shareholders that you have taken steps to protect data in the event of a breach. This can also help reduce financial and reputational damage and avoid potentially costly security breaches.
Meet additional regulatory requirements.
Having an ISO accreditation proves that we comply with other relevant UK regulations such as NIST CSF (Cybersecurity Framework), and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union.
Enable your business structure to be flexible and scalable.
As your business adapts and grows, your MSP will have the processes, structures, and framework in place to support your journey. During any changes to business operations, a robust cyber security program will provide quality assurance and prevent downtime.
Protecting and supporting your business.
If preventing cyber-attacks, such as hacking, phishing and malware, is an important consideration for your business, you want to work with someone that is ISO 27001 certified.
This certification proves that you would be working with a supplier that you can trust with all things cyber security while radically reducing the risk of being exposed to cyber threats and business continuity disruptions.
By achieving our certification in December 2023, we prove that we take security safely and that data and cyber security at the core of everything we do. By working with No Problem IT, you can be confident that your business information is in good hands.
It was a lot of work, and required intensive investigation, study and some modification of business processes – coming out of the other side of it I feel that it has ‘solidified’ NPIT, as we know what the structure of the company is, how to keep it secure for both ourselves and our customers and ultimately allows us to grow with confidence.”
