As part of our ongoing commitment to information security and quality management, Print Image Network is pleased to announce that we have passed our annual audit for ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 9001, with zero non-conformities.
ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management Standard provides a way of ensuring that a common set of policies, procedures and controls are in place to manage risks to information security. It provides a framework for the management of information security risks, which ensures we take into account legal and regulatory requirements.
The ISO 9001 certification is internationally recognised as the most established quality framework, focussed on increasing efficiencies, preventing errors and improving customer service.
Print Image Network takes information security and quality management very seriously. The company is committed to going above and beyond what the policies require to ensure its customers and all data is in the safest hands and that we continue to provide the best service possible.
The retention of both accreditations is crucial to Print Image Network as it continues to provide election printing for local councils, which have stringent internal procedures in relation to their supply chains.
Print Image Network’s Office Manager, Pauline Selfe, said of the audit pass.
“Print Image Network has always been committed to the security of information and customer service. Having held ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certification for four years, we have successfully passed our annual audit, with zero non-conformities. This has helped instil a higher level of confidence with our customers. Our security frameworks are constantly evolving and developing to ensure our service mirrors that required by our customers, the audit structure ensures we are on the right path.”
Print Image Network Ltd, election services and printing specialist, has retained the ISO 9001 certification and has been accredited against the new ISO 27001:2013 standard, demonstrating its commitment to quality and information security.
The company, which celebrated its 15th anniversary this year, is based in the North West and has a loyal customer base of local authorities which spans the length and breadth of the country.
Having held the standard since 2012, the company faced its first three-year re-assessment in August and is pleased to announce that it passed without a single ‘non-conformance’ – an achievement that only a small percentage companies assessed against the new standard actually achieve.
ISO 9001 is a Quality Management Standard which helps to create a more disciplined work environment and improve a company’s overall performance, ensuring quality is truly embedded in its culture and operations. ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security Management certification is awarded to organisations that want to assess risk and prevent information security incidents, which is crucial to suppliers that work with local government contracts. Updated in 2013, Print Image Network had to make the transition from the old ISO27001:2005 standard to new ISO27001:2013 standard.
John Foster, Managing Director of Print Image Network, said: “Achieving the re-assessment of both ISO Standards is a fantastic achievement but we are particularly proud that we did so with no non-conformances. The team at Print Image Network works extremely hard to ensure we are conforming to the policies and procedures defined by ISO 9001:2008 & ISO 27001:2013 and we are particularly impressed with Print Image Network Supervisor, Craig Poyser, who worked extremely hard to prepare for the re-assessment and ensured the transition from the old to new 27001 Certification was implemented within our business.”
The re-assessment marks the second celebration for the company, who earlier this year passed its three year re-assessment for the Customer Service Excellence Standard. Services Director, Stephen Power commented on the company’s achievements in 2015. “Print Image Network has always tried to achieve the highest standards possible, whether that’s quality-related, security-related or customer-related. We understand that in order to work with us our customers want to be confident that we operate in a way which makes them secure about our abilities as a supplier. We are really happy to have been recognised for all our hard work, most of all we want our customers to continue to see the benefits that achieving these certifications and accreditations brings.”
