Government tender advantage

Get an advantage when tendering for Government contracts with our third-party assessment to recognized international standards.

In the UK, we are seeing the biggest wave of Government outsourcing since the 1980’s, resulting in Government procurement processes increasingly specifying international standards, including ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management and ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management. This is driven by things such as the need for Government to be reassured that key suppliers have frameworks in place to manage information security risks and ensure the continuity of their service delivery.

Aligned with Government frameworks for Information Assurance (IA) and Business Continuity, ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 22301 provide international best practice, to help meet tender requirements, giving you a competitive advantage.

How ISO/IEC 27001 can help

ISO/IEC 27001 provides international best practice for an information security management system. It allows you to demonstrate that you have the necessary policies, procedures and controls in place to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of sensitive information you are managing on behalf of the Government. It can also lead to lower expenditure through a reduction in incidents and provide you with a mechanism to comply with increasing regulation including data protection legislative reforms

How ISO 22301 can help

ISO 22301 provides international best practice for a business continuity management system. It makes sure you have appropriate plans in place, which have been tested to ensure you can recover critical functions as quickly and smoothly as possible. It gives reassurance to clients in your ability to continue when unexpected disruptions, that could affect your ability to meet service level agreements, do occur.
