ISO 27001/2 certified

To ensure the security of your data and service Plan B, in line with IT service best practice, follow ITIL principles and operate an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Plan B’s ISMS is based on and compliant with the international ISO 27001 /2 standards published jointly by ISO and IEC. To ensure the effectiveness of our ISMS we are independently audited annually by the British Standards Institute (BSi) and we are certified ISO/IEC 27001:20013 compliant.

You can view our full certificate here.

Because of the nature of an outsourced, cloud based service, it is essential to the security and integrity of your data and service that you can trust your supplier. ISO 27001 is the only effective standard for IT information security management; it is rigorous and onerous to implement and maintain and is therefore only held by companies that take information security seriously. We would strongly suggest that any supplier of outsourced IT services you consider should be ISO 27001 certified.

Plan B is delighted to announce that after winning the prestigious ‘Best Specialist Business Continuity Company of the Year 2012′, and being shortlisted in 2013 we have been shortlisted for the same award for 2014!

The CIR Awards are judged by an independent panel of experts, who last year recognised Plan B’s innovative service, customer satisfaction rates and 100% invocation record, and placed us ahead of six other shortlisted businesses.

The prestigious 2012 award evaluated Plan B’s DR services and solutions, and also judged on the quality of Plan B’s customer projects and overall satisfaction. These achievements are possible due to Plan B’s unique, rigorous, daily testing regime of customers’ recovery systems. This dedication to service excellence, dramatically reduces customer risk and improves business continuity.

 

Tim Dunger, director at Plan B, said, “We remain one of the pioneers of the disaster recovery industry and continue to be at the top of our game. The fact we have been shortlisted every year we have entered. and also won this award demonstrates that  we continue to be innovative. We’re really delighted for our unique Pre-recovery service to be recognised at such a prestigious level.”

 

The Business Continuity Awards recognise those business continuity, security, resilience and risk professionals whose innovative strategies and industry savvy make them stand out above the rest.

Plan B have also previously been finalists in the annual Business Continuity Awards in 2009 and 2011 (we didn’t enter in 2010!).
