INCIDENT management specialist FMG has achieved two important accreditations.
The company, based at Bradley Mills, has gained BS25999 for business continuity management and ISO27001 for information security.
The continuity management award endorses FMG’s ability to cope with unexpected events, ranging from computer failure to structural damage to buildings while maintaining a seamless level of service for customers.
It covers a wide range of business areas, including people, premises, suppliers and assets and recognises the business has the systems in place to continue operating should unforeseen events effect activity.
The information security standard recognises the way FMG handles customer information and provides evidence of the company’s ability and systems to ensure the safe management of sensitive data.
Chief executive John Catling said: “Business continuity planning is important for all businesses. The nature of our operation, which includes the need to be there for our customers 24/7 every day of the year, makes this a necessity, not a luxury.
“Together with the ISO accreditation on information security, we’re demonstrating to new and existing customers our understanding of the changing needs and demands of business.
“We hold as absolutely key, the need to maintain the security of confidential and sensitive information. Our people have worked tirelessly to ensure that we have met and exceeded the necessary criteria. The fact that the company has been recognised in this way, makes all the effort worthwhile.”
