One of the largest IT distributors in the country, Total Computer Networks (TCN) provides IT Equipment, Configuration and Managed Services.
Total Computer Networks approached Assent in 2016 as they prepared to implement ISO 27001:2013. We were pleased to provide a gap analysis to highlight existing strengths and weaknesses within the company’s operations, helping TCN to plan an effective roll-out on the standard.
Capitalising on the knowledge and relationships built during the gap analysis, we agreed an expanded ISO project bringing in to scope ISO 9001:2015 transition work and full ISO 27001 implementation; which completed successfully in 2018 with certification under BSI.
ISO Project Management
TCN and Assent successfully collaborated through a series of onsite meetings, and via our online project management tool which allowed us to discuss tasks and track their status.
An integrated internal audit programme was also established to reduce disruption to the business and increase the effectiveness of the management system.
Additional Compliance Support
With the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming in to force during the project, Assent was well placed to provide consultancy resource to help TCN become compliant before the May 25th Deadline.
Bespoke Cross-Site Training
With our in-depth knowledge of TCN’s integrated management system and data protection arrangements, we were able to develop and deliver effective compliance training across their Kettering, London and Manchester offices.
Jo Spencer, Total Computer Networks said:
“Assent were one of three consultancies recommended by BSi, but after speaking with all three Assent were our clear favourite. Throughout the process they were patient and professional, taking the time to understand our business and guiding us through both the transition to ISO 9001:2015 and a successful ISO 27001 certification. We’ve continued to work with Assent for tailored training and consultancy services and highly recommend the team at Assent to anyone in need of ISO consultancy. “
