How have we helped Kallidus and what have been the benefits?
Assent have a long-standing relationship over number of years with Kallidus. We have assisted them transition to new versions of both ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 and as Kallidus has grown we have scaled their management system.
We have incorporated key supplier audits as part of the overall Internal Audit Programme.
To help Kallidus key staff learn and understand ISO we have run workshops and training sessions.
Feedback from Jeremy Benson, Internal IT Analyst, from Kallidus
“We first engaged with Assent when we were on our own path to ISO27001 certification. Assent carried out a gap analysis of what was required to meet the standard, and we then used Assent 1 day per month until certification was achieved in March 2014. Assent brought a good documentation set and 27001 implementation and consultant knowledge with them to the project, and this was invaluable in lowering our own internal resource requirements to meet the standard, and how to best make it work in practice.
We have continued to use Assent regularly since our original certification to support our ISMS (including transition to the 2013 standard), and we have also recently extended this support to our ISO9001 QMS too (this also included transition to 2015 standard). As an IRCA certified auditor Rob from Assent carries out our internal audits, he provides us with on-going documentation and advice, and he also maintains a knowledgeable presence at our external certification or surveillance audits which is a great help – he obviously gets more exposure to auditor questions and their interpretation of the standard than internal infosec people can with limited scope and audits per year.
Personally, I find him easy to get along with, a good communicator, and I’ve enjoyed working with Assent over the last 4 years. He also has sufficient gravitas to be able to work at different levels within an organisation. Dealings with other office staff at Assent have always been prompt, courteous and well-organised.”
