Vanilla Achieves ISO 27001 Certification

Vanilla Solutions are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the standard for Information Security Management, ISO 27001. In achieving this we demonstrate that our services meet the data security needs of customers through an effective quality and information security management system.

The certification reassures our customers and business partners that our approach and delivery is industry-leading across our entire portfolio of products and services.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is an information security management standard that defines a set of information, security and management controls. By obtaining this internationally recognised standard, it means that as an organisation we have:

  • Examined our information security risks and implemented a systematic, risk-based approach to managing the security of our information assets
  • Implemented internal processes to test for company-wide conformity
  • Adopted a management process that frequently reviews these controls on an ongoing basis
  • Successfully passed an external audit conducted by BSI, the industry-standard in auditing to test for conformity

Why Vanilla Felt This Was Necessary

Vanilla Head of Technology, Mike Hollifield stated “We’ve taken the time to work on our internal systems and processes ensuring they are compliant to a highly regarded standard such as 27001. By achieving this accreditation, we are in a pretty unique position within the IFS community. Internally it has created a positive culture within our organisation and enhances employee professionalism by clearly defining expectations and goals for business success.”

Vanilla Solutions has both ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 Accreditations

Vanilla has taken another step forward towards being recognised as the industry leader in IFS Applications ERP. The new accreditation is further strengthened by our ISO 9001 certification, the standard in Quality Management gained in 2015. We believe that by having this additional certification Vanilla vastly reduces the risk for our clients as well as giving them greater peace of mind by working with us.”
