Mercury Security Management have a long and established relationship with Global QA who over the years having assisted them in obtaining many certifications and standards including: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, NSI Gold & SIA ACS.
Originally Global QA won the contract to provide QMS for Mercury against stiff competition, with their professionalism and all round industry experience being cited as key factors at the time.
Lois Haynes, one of Global QA’s ISO 27001 specialists defined the project requirements, interacted with Mercury’s directors, management and personnel converting Mercury’s shared company knowledge into a working information security management system.
Global QA also provided in-house training on all elements of the system. Additional on-going support was provided in the form of regular on-site visits to advise on structured implementation.
Global QA also assisted in producing the essential documented information in order to provide evidence that Mercury were working to the system for continual improvement, training and assessment purposes required in the process.
A complete documented Information Security Management System (ISMS) was specifically designed for and subsequently approved by Mercury.
At this point in the process Global QA then advised Mercury of the various UKAS (Government approved) CB’s competent to audit their system, they also obtained quotes from the chosen certification body and arranged dates for the assessment.
Global QA work ethos aims to improve the client’s business while at the same time eliminating unnecessary paperwork.
By applying Global QA’s ‘keep it simple’ methodology, the daunting assessment process was undertaken with confidence resulting in a successful outcome.
The whole process was completed and ISO 27001 certification was awarded in less than 8 months – in this case with the added benefit of no non-compliances.
Global QA proudly achieve a 100% first time success rate with UKAS approved Certification Bodies.
“As always Global QA provided an exceptionally good professional service combined with their friendly easy to understand formula. We are proud to add the IS0 27001 to our long list of certifications”
