Simpson Associates, a leading data analytics consultancy, today announced its certification for ISO 9001 and ISO 27001, awarded by the Centre For Assessment (CFA). These demonstrate how Simpson Associates processes are of the highest quality, and how data is safeguarded to the upmost degree.
Giles Horwood, Managing Director of Simpson Associates, said: ‘As a data and performance management expert, we have always prioritised data security and integrity, and it is great to be officially recognised for our efforts. ISO 27001 validates our approach to security in our work and the data we handle, and is a level of reassurance to our customer. Plus, ISO 9001, the Quality Management accreditation gives our customers peace of mind they are working with the best data experts in the industry. The whole of Simpson Associates has worked towards adhering to the ISO standards, enabling our certification.’
ISO 27001 is an accreditation for Information Security Management, and demonstrates that Simpson Associates have identified and mitigated any potential security risks, in order to provide outstanding safeguarding for information assets and personal data. As a data company, they understand how important it is to keep their customers’ data safe, so although they already had procedures and safeguarding in place, this certification validates how they deal with data to protect their customers. As well as developing credibility and proving the culture of security, this accreditation is another layer to protect against cyber-attacks and data leaks, and also allows Simpson Associates to comply with the most recent legal regulations. Primarily, ISO 27001 adds security not only to Simpson Associates work and the data they handle, but also as a level of reassurance to their customer, confirming that Simpson Associates is the most trust-worthy data analytics consultancy in the market.
ISO 9001, the Quality Management accreditation, gives Simpson Associates recognition of best practice, showing how our Quality Management System is continually improving and striving for excellence. This means they can concentrate on their customers, working effectively with them to provide what they need. In turn, this will allow customers to be more satisfied with the service or product that Simpson Associates supply.
Obtained through extensive external audits, these accreditations are internationally recognised, and reiterate Simpson Associates’ dedication to continual improvement and commitment to meeting and exceeding conditions and expectations to provide the highest quality service they can offer.
