What is an ISO Certification?
The International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, is an independent, international agency that has developed quality, standard, and safety standards for products, services, and systems that are trusted by industries and businesses all across the world. Because of the breadth of products, services, and systems that the ISO creates standardization for to ensure consistency, there are different criteria and standards associated with each certification.
The ISO 27001:2003 certification is one of the hardest and most prestigious certifications to achieve and takes the business a lot of effort to maintain. The certification is for information technology, security techniques, information and security management systems. It guarantees that a standardized framework is being followed for information security. At Global Virtuoso, we work hard to maintain our ISO 27001:2003 certification because we want to provide those looking to outsource systems and services like these with the very best. We also want to ensure that our organization can adequately protect our databases, our people, our clients, and all of the processes that we use to serve our clients. ISO certification tells our clients that we are making good on those promises of competency and expertise.
How Does ISO Certification Benefit Outsourcing Clients?
An ISO certification is imperative for an outsourcing provider to hold and clients looking to outsource services such as accounting or healthcare should always look for this standard. The ISO certification gives clients confidence that they can trust the organization they are outsourcing systems or services to. It also assures a consistent quality of those systems and services.
ISO certifications are a stamp of approval from the biggest and most widely recognized authorities in standardization. When outsourcing systems and services to an organization like Global Virtuoso with an ISO 27001:2003 certification, clients can expect high quality standards to be met consistently, better reporting and communication, and better services for their customers overall.
