Initially, we hired another party to help us with the ISO27001 implementation. They provided us with templates, so we could start the process ourselves. However, we noticed that this approach was not right for us. We made very little progress, as we have many other priorities as a company. This made the project disappear into the background. We needed a more practical approach to getting the whole thing off the ground and came across PuraSec.
After the first conversation with PuraSec, the entire process seemed so much clearer and less difficult, making it manageable. PuraSec provided us with guidance to speed up the process ourselves, which has resulted in significant time and cost savings. In only three months time we were ready for the audit!
As an organization, we think it is important to have our processes in order, but also to constantly improve them. We were already doing quite well, but we thought it would be valuable to record this within our organization. In addition, we noticed that the ISO27001 certification is becoming more important to our customers. Often the certification is even included as a requirement in tenders. It used to take us a long time to answer all questions referring to the quality of our ISMS. Now we are able to just refer to our ISO27001 certification, which is a lot more efficient.
Additionally, we wanted our ISMS to be digital, preferably in Confluence. We are therefore very happy that we have found Instant27001 as a suitable framework. Thanks to this framework, we were able to automate a large part of the process, which saves a lot of time. This is a solid setup where everything can be traced back to. With the knowledge of PuraSec, everything is properly arranged which enables us to continue on the right track, now and in the future.
PuraSec did a great job in guiding us through the process and motivating us along the way. Based on their questions we provided input that laid the foundation, avoiding complex thinking on our part. We have experienced our collaboration with PuraSec as very positive and we appreciate PuraSec always taking the time to answer our questions. It was great to see that PuraSec immediately understood that keeping things simple and having a pragmatic approach was very important to us.
Almost effortlessly we established the ISMS, with as icing on the cake the much-anticipated certification!
