Certification & Compliance

Regain control and compliance of your information and data. Ensure that your business is secure and playing by the rules.
With data handling continually becoming more regulated, it’s never been so crucial for your business to follow compliance guidelines to ensure that your data isn’t at risk. Failure to do so could result in vulnerability, fines and reputation – your customers thinking twice before engaging in your services. Economit is accredited to engage with companies for the implementation and audit of both ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials to provide you with support throughout the entire process of becoming certified.

Become ISO 27001 Certified

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised Information Security standard which identifies your organisation as being responsible in that you consistently demonstrate a high standard in the management of information, identifying any gaps in the security, risks to information held and demonstrating best practice in your data management processes within your organisation. Becoming ISO 27001 certified can seem like a daunting task for a business to achieve, however, the benefits of doing so with Economit can outweigh any reservations you may have.

The benefits include:

  • Winning new business
  • Providing existing customers with extra confidence and assurance
  • Reducing your risk of data incidents
  • Improving internal data processing
  • Protecting your business’s growth into the future

Our consultants take you through these stages of obtaining ISO 27001 accreditation:

  • Initial free consultation
  • Scope refinement and gap analysis
  • Planning and preparation of what needs to be implemented
  • Fieldwork to bring together evidence of current practices
  • Analysis of the evidence which is collated
  • Reporting to define which aspects of your practices could be improved
  • Ongoing support to ensure good practices are maintained

Should your organisation process large volumes of information or happen to be in a highly regulated industry, there is an undeniable advantage in gaining the ISO 27001 accreditation.

Gain a Cyber Essentials Certification

The Cyber Essentials scheme has been specifically designed for organisations of all sizes in order to improve the overall standards of UK cyber security in a simple and cost-effective manner. It addresses common cyber threats including hacking, phishing and password breaches and provides a solid cyber security foundation by introducing cyber security best practices.

As both Cyber Essentials certified practitioners ourselves and a Cyber Essentials accredited company, Economit’s consultants take you through each stage of gaining the certification for your business.

In addition to helping to reduce the risks of cyber-attacks, your Cyber Essentials certification reassures your customers that you take IT security and data protection seriously, which can increase your chances of getting through a procurement cycle and expand your business opportunities into further sectors, such as the UK government and MOD.

Our Cyber Essentials consultant will undertake the appropriate assessments, recommendations, report and provide impartial advice to ensure that your business benefits from the certification in a cost effective manner. Following our consultancy process and subsequent change period, a government-approved assessor will verify that the relevant procedures have been put in place and initiate a final assessment to test for accreditation.

Gaining a Cyber Essentials Plus Certification requires the same protections to be in place as the standard version, but this time an independent Certification Body will verify the security posture of an organisation by undertaking a series of practical tests on the organisation’s infrastructure.

We’re proud of our impartial, independent IT consultative approach, which means we can execute your IT strategy with your best interests at its core. It’s why our clients trust us.

Working across the country, but specifically in locations along the M1/M6 corridors including Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Birmingham and London, we’ve helped companies through our IT consultancy services to become certified and compliant in line with their business needs.
