IT Service Provider, Integris, Expands Security Offerings to Help Businesses Achieve Prestigious ISO 27001 Certification


January 18, 2024

IT Managed Service Provider, Integris, is proud to announce the completion of four ISO 27001 Certifications in 2023 through its Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) practice. Companies achieving the prestigious certification include: MedSurvey (Southampton, PA), Heart+Mind Strategies (Reston, VA) and Brado (St. Louis).

Each business handles sensitive data on behalf of their clients. With an ISO 27001 Certification, they can now provide an objective attestation that information security risk is managed, and data is processed in a manner consistent with relevant laws and regulations, prevailing good practices, and the clients’ information security objectives. ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognized and internationally accepted information security standards in the world, specifying the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS within the context of the organization.

“We worked with Integris to help MedSurvey achieve ISO 27001 certification, and we could not have asked for a better guide throughout the process. We were new and mostly unfamiliar with the ISMS, and Integris laid it out for us in a way that made implementation an overall very easy process,” says Chris Foley, Director of Data Operations at MedSurvey.

“ISO 27001 certification may be the sincerest way an organization can express its desire to safeguard its information and assets while simultaneously defending the interests of its member ecosystem. Great job and congratulations to all! A determined team can be invincible,” says Darrin Maggy, Virtual Chief Information Security Officer for Integris.
