Having assisted an online intranet business, Interact, to achieve ISO 27001 certification we caught up with their amazing Security Manager, Sara Burgess.

“While my company was taking its first steps towards ISO27001 certification, Joe Elding [GB3’s Technical Director] was brought in to ‘sanity check’ the policies and processes I’d written, ensure we had covered or were in the process of covering, all the relevant areas of the standard and to give management an indication as to how much work might be needed before we could put ourselves forward for formal auditing. In each of these area’s and a whole lot more besides, Joe was outstanding.

“Joe helped me understand points I’d found tricky and gave a belief in myself, in what I knew and what I was doing. It was wonderful having that sounding board to ask questions of and check details with and Joe really helped to build my confidence in the task”

ISO27001 certification was not only a first for my company, it was a personal first too. While I’d studied the standard and read a lot of books, websites and white papers, I had no formal training. Joe helped me understand points I’d found tricky and gave a belief in myself, in what I knew and what I was doing. It was wonderful having that sounding board to ask questions of and check details with and Joe really helped to build my confidence in the task.

Joe was very thorough, logical, friendly and professional in his approach. He went through my policies and procedures, and talked me through the audit process to ensure I would know what the auditors were looking for in terms of content and evidence. He was knowledgeable, not just on the standard and audit process but also on ‘esoteric’ aspects of passing ISO27001 certification that simply can’t be learnt from a book, but only with experience.

I was delighted to have Joe’s help and I think his advice early on played a key role in my company getting it’s ISO27001 certificate first time round and in just under a year. I would wholeheartedly recommend Joe’s services if you are serious about achieving ISO27001 certification.”
