Business continuity experts, Jermyn Consulting, has demonstrated its unique understanding of the needs of the IT sector developing a bespoke strategy to support a leading cloud services provider to achieve ISO 22301 certification.
The company was called on by Techgate plc, which it has worked with extensively in the past, to help support its application for the ISO 22301 standard as part of its own strategy to demonstrate robust business continuity to clients.
Jermyn Consulting, which specialise in developing workable business continuity management systems (BCMS) ensured that Techgate plc achieved ISO 22301.
The BCMS is now embedded within Techgate plc to future proof its offering.
Jermyn Consulting director Gary Donlon said:
“Techgate plc already had certification to BS25999:2007, but recognised it was vital to their growth strategy to transition to the ISO 22301 standard.
“Also important was that they guaranteed it would be sustainable.
“Jermyn Consulting’s approach was to analyse the existing BCMS, identify where it needed changing and future proof Techgate plc’s investment with a secure BCMS delivered through system updates, staff training and mentoring of the team.
“This gives both their clients and staff peace of mind that a robust and workable system is in place.
“Our solution was a cost-effective way of supporting the incumbent business continuity manager through knowledge transfer of the subject-matter, and mentoring during the implementation works.
“Jermyn Consulting’s model is to work with, not for, our clients to deliver results.
“Our 100 per cent success rate is testament to this approach.”
Graham Green, operations director at Techgate plc said:
“Having these accreditations allows us to prove to our customers that we provide and maintain the highest levels of service delivery and management for our bespoke IT solutions.”
“Jermyn Consulting has always worked extremely well with our people and have a thorough understanding of the subject matter as well as the challenges and pitfalls that can arise from implementing this management system in a company of the scale and size of Techgate.
“During the transition process they provided a light touch approach that was very efficient, providing us with lots of value-added and the outcome that we wanted.
“Techgate believes that its BCMS, along with its Information Security Management System (ISMS), underpins the management and technical approach to providing the resilience and security to all business practices that its customers are looking for and appreciate.
“Jermyn Consulting’s support through the transition from BS25999 to ISO 22301 helped us ensure that we successfully negotiated the transition audit at the first attempt.
“We have no hesitation in recommending them to other business similar to ours.”
