Plan B Disaster Recovery has become the first UK disaster recovery specialist to achieve certification for the new ISO27001:2013 standard. The Information Security Management standard, which came out in October 2013, requires companies to undergo a transition from the older ISO27001:2005 version and be assessed by an auditor before accreditation is granted.

ISO27001 recognises best practice framework for an information security management system.  The new ISO27001:2013 demonstrates commitment to the highest class of information security management and enables businesses like Plan B to gain trust and respect from customers. By identifying all risks within their business and putting in place appropriate controls to manage or reduce them, companies that achieve ISO27001:2013 should have an advantage when being considered as a supplier.

Plan B, a disaster recovery service provider working with a broad range of mid-caps, understands the importance of information security management. “As we are entrusted with handling customer’s critical data we need to ensure that we give all customers the reassurance that we are committed to following best practices. A business relies heavily on the security of their data, and as our business is about protecting client’s IT systems it is paramount that we can instil trust in them and follow through with our promises. Having ISO27001:2013 helps us to demonstrate that level of commitment to our prospects and customers, and enables us to continue to deliver 100% customer satisfaction.” Says Ian Daly of Plan B.
