Our certifications

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard that sets requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS).  Implementing, and then maintaining, am ISMS ensures that businesses are securely managing information assets and data such as customer and employee details, financial information and third-party data.  The standard requires businesses to put in place robust security controls and processes and embed information security management across their organisation.

AVC Wise Ltd holds certifications in both the ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 Standards, awarded to us by a UKAS-accredited certification body (the British Assessment Bureau). The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole body appointed by the UK Government to provide accreditation to certification bodies. This accreditation is considered the gold standard in the certification of ISO standards, and the only way that an organisation can use the coveted Government-backed national accreditation symbol – commonly referred to as the ‘UKAS Crown and Tick’.

ISO 27001

ISO 9001

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard that sets requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS). Implementing, and then maintaining, a QMS ensures that businesses deliver to a consistently high standard, continually measuring and improving every aspect of their business operations within this regulatory framework.

ISO 9001

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government-backed certification scheme that helps businesses protect themselves (and customers’ data) against a wide range of the most common cyber attacks, with annual assessments to maintain certification.

Cyber Essentials Plus offers businesses the opportunity to take their security to the next level (where a hands-on technical audit of their systems is carried out).  It cannot be undertaken without first being Cyber Essentials certified; and again, there are annual assessments to maintain CE Plus certification.

Cyber Essentials
