Brigantia Partners Limited is a reseller of “best-in-class” cybersecurity software, based in Thirsk, Yorkshire. The business supports numerous security software vendors and thousands of channel partners, helping them to grow and in turn, secure their customers’ businesses. Given the nature of the software products and services that they sell, the client base and commercial relationships, Brigantia recognised the need to achieve ISO 27001 certification to demonstrate that they operate a robust and secure Information Security Management System. The task of setting up the ISMS and achieving ISO 27001 certification was charged to Rupert Abrahams. Brigantia Partners received their ISO 27001 certificate in December 2023 and this is what Rupert had to say:
“The 27k1 application has been great at simplifying and guiding us through the process of achieving the ISO 27001 accreditation. When we started our implementation, we were using multiple spreadsheets to manage our Information Security management system. We bought the application to try and simplify this and since using it the whole process has been a lot easier. We have found that we can manage all aspects of our system within it including the documentation, asset management and running the audits and risk assessments.
It is very easy to use and navigate as the application is laid out very clearly with different sections and intuitive to use, and we required only minimal training. When we have need any support 27k1 have responded very quickly and dealt with our queries.
When doing our full audit, the application made it so easy to demonstrate our compliance against the controls and the reports module was particularly helpful in showing activities that had been carried out. Our auditor did say that he thought the application was particularly helpful in guiding us through the process and the proof of this is that we breezed through our certification!”
