MONROEVILLE, Pa., March 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanticom, an industry leader in IT Service Management, today announced that its Information Security Management System (ISMS) has fulfilled all requirements to earn certification against the ISO 27001:2013 standard.
ISO 27001:2013 is the global gold standard for information security. It's published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world's largest developer of international standards. Advanticom's audit and certification were issued by A-lign, an ISO/IEC 27001 certification body accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board to perform ISO certifications.
This demonstrates Advanticom's continued commitment to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of its own and its clients' data and information. Advanticom's scope for the accreditation was the following:
- IT Service Management
- Managed Services, Including 24/7 Service Desk
- Systems Engineering
- Solutions Architecture
- Project Management
Security breaches are increasing in numbers and complexity. Many breaches can be traced back to inadequate security controls and processes of a company and its partners. That's why Advanticom chose the highest standard in the world, ISO 27001:2013, to reduce the risk and increase the peace of mind of their clients.
Advanticom's President and CEO, Brian Conboy, commented, "This will be a requirement to operate on any company's IT systems. It's a moral and professional responsibility for a vendor. Operating on client's IT systems without ISO or SOC2 is like practicing medicine without a degree. We wouldn't trust our loved ones to an amateur. We should have the same due care for the IT systems that keep thousands employed. Organizations have the right to work with a vendor who is responsible, serious, and investing in critical systems, processes, and training. Our clients tell us that they don't want to explain to their boss or board why they worked with a partner who did not take IT security seriously. I think we can all understand that perspective. Many vendors claim to be security conscious. Very few have invested in the people and processes to be certified."
Since 1998, Advanticom has built a record of leadership and innovation by delivering exceptional technology solutions, reliable and efficient IT Service Management (ITSM), and IT consulting services. Advanticom is a Pittsburgh-based company that works with mid-size to large companies. Advanticom's passion and expertise drives high value and immediate client benefit during every interaction.
