EOL earns its fourth ISO accolade

VAR EOL IT has bagged an International Standards Organisation (ISO) certification in security management and plans to use it to push into the public sector.

The firm has completed certification for the ISO 27001 for information security management systems, which less than one per cent of all UK firms have so far completed.

This brings the firm’s number of ISO qualifications to four; the others being ISO 18001 for occupational health and safety management, ISO 9001 for quality administration systems and ISO 14001 for environmental management systems.

Richard Parker, managing director of EOL IT, said: “This latest ISO is all about data security. A number of our competitors have this, but the immediate benefit for us is when tendering to clients.”

Parker added that the firm intends to go for larger public sector contracts now that it has four ISO standards. “There is only one other firm that I know in our sector with all four ISO certifications. It is all about putting in best practice to the business.”
