Leading information security, data privacy and business continuity SaaS platform ISMS.online has been chosen by Tech Nation to participate in its Upscale 7.0 programme. Upscale 7.0 is a six-month programme curated by the UK network for tech entrepreneurs and is designed to support the UK’s most promising tech companies accelerate their growth. This is the second time ISMS.online has been invited to participate in one of the network’s programmes, having been included in the cohort for the UK’s inaugural cybersecurity growth programme, Tech Nation Cyber, in 2019.
ISMS.online is the most practical, easy to use and comprehensive path to privacy, information & cyber security success. It helps organisations from all over the world quickly achieve standards such as ISO 27001 or meet regulations like GDPR. It does that with an all-in-one-place, cloud-based platform and, where appropriate, complementary consultancy services.
ISMS.online CEO, Mark Darby said, “We’re delighted to find ourselves working with Tech Nation again and we’re in fine company with our other cohort members. The governance, risk and compliance market is booming, with new players entering every day. Tech Nation’s independent acknowledgement of our market appeal validates our frontrunner position in as the most simple, secure and sustainable ISMS (information security management system) solution.”
The announcement comes at a pivotal time in ISMS.online’s continued growth trajectory. The company is expanding on early successes in APAC with a local presence to invigorate the market and is primed to launch its Partner Programme, to make a robust security posture even more available to organisations of all sizes and budgets across the globe.
Darby continued, “Legacy thinking in the industry centres around the notion of ‘trust’ however, with threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, we don’t think trust goes far enough. The supply chain needs certainty. Powerful customers are increasingly demanding demonstrable infosec from their supply chains in the form of standards certifications. We start customers off with ISO 27001. This process has traditionally been high cost and time-intensive, putting smaller organisations at a distinct disadvantage in the current worldwide acceleration to attain the standard. In addition, local and regional standards and frameworks may also be required for a demonstrable infosec posture to deliver certainty.”
“Until now, there has been no simple and affordable management tool to accommodate, coordinate and sustain an organisation’s entire infosec, privacy and business continuity needs all in one place. We’re on a mission to democratise infosec by making our affordable solution flexible enough to be the only software an organisation needs to achieve the most robust security posture possible.”
