A Darlington-based ICT solution service provider which works with schools across Darlington for all things technical and data protection has successfully passed an internationally recognised certification.

IT Systems passed its ISO27001:2013 certification in 2018 following an independent review, assessment and audit of their Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The recent re-certification reaffirms IT Systems development of their ISMS and endorses their activities, processes and procedures to deliver ICT solutions and services to the education sector.

“Our re-certification is a result of years of honing and developing excellent working practices, ethos and values for maintaining high standards of information security which is expected.

Our customers hold some of the most sensitive data and as such we give it the attention and care that it requires from a solutions provider.

In the last twelve months, we have watched ransomware attacks increase on a massive scale in the Education Sector,” said Tristen Coad, Technical Director.

“I am very proud of our re-certification and how all members of our team have embedded information security into every fibre of their work.

This shows that IT Systems continues to ‘level-up’.

IT Systems is setting the standard for its customers’ expectations for security when it comes to providing high quality ICT solutions in education,” said John R Agar, Managing Director.
