Helping Australian Valuers achieve ISO 27001 certification
20 January 2022
The fast track to ISO 27001 certification
We are delighted to congratulate Australian Valuers on becoming our latest client to achieve ISO 27001 certification for its ISMS (Information Security Management System).
Australian Valuers provides a wide range of valuation services to individuals and coprorate entities. All the company's valuers office are members of the Australian Property Institute and are registered with the Queensland Valuers Registration Board. Quality management is the backbone of this company resulting in reliable reporting of a very high standard. Its professional staff specialise in their valuation field of choice, which enables the company to provide each individual client with accurate advice in any asset class.
In line with an increasing trend, it was beginning to be asked by some major banks clients to provide assurance of information security management. So, in early 2021 the Directors invited Qudos to assist in establishing an ISMS. The brief was for a system to suit its needs and that could be certified to the ISO 27001 standard. After an initial Gap Analysis, we also provided Qudos3 IMS software plus consultancy and internal audit services. With just a little guidance, most of the system development work was performed in-house. This method achieved a very high level of 'ownership' of the system. Australian Valuers was successfully certified to ISO 27001 by Best Practice Certification in December 2021. A great achievement in such a short period of time!
We are delighted to have played a part in that success, and Compliance Manager, Karen Meredith kindly had this to say about our involvement:
"5 stars is just not enough for this company!! We are privileged to have received both the consultancy and software from Qudos. The Qudos3 IMS software is a total management system that affords the ability to be able to comply with certification requirements, is easy to use and came with extensive personal training and very informative videos and supporting information. This system has allowed us to set up a management system right the first time!! On top of that, Alan and the team are a pleasure to work with, they are highly knowledgeable, helpful and supportive. This is definitely one company we will continue to use well into the future. Thanks Qudos!!"
Australian Valuers has experienced strong growth in recent years, and has recently moved into a brand new Head Office. We are confident that with its new management system and certification that growth will continue into the future.
