|ISO 27001:2005 - Your information is secure with MBSL - Press Release|
MBSL (McNally Business Services Limited), a premier provider of outsourced accounting solutions and related business services, is pleased to announce that it has achieved ISO 27001:2005 certification.
With this certification, MBSL can provide something that no other accountancy firm in Ireland can offer – independent certification that its business and systems controls are such that they meet international best practice standards.
ISO 27001 is the international standard developed exclusively for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), requiring companies to employ a methodical approach to managing sensitive information and ensuring data security.
The standard comprises ten exhaustive control categories including organisation of information security, access controls, physical and environmental security, asset management, business continuity management, communications and operations management.
There are just over 6,000 companies world-wide certified for ISO 27001. MBSL is one of a select number of accountancy firms globally to attain the critical, leading-edge international standards certification.
In the current economic climate, more and more organisations are choosing to outsource their non core business activities as they seek to reduce their costs and gain more focus on their core business. However, in doing so, there is a greater exposure to breaches of information security as organisations give external service providers access to more and more confidential data.
With ISO 27001 certification, MBSL can now provide additional peace of mind to its clients that risk and exposure to breaches of information and data security is minimised.
This accreditation reflects MBSL’s commitment to operational excellence and maximising customer trust and confidence in the company's infrastructure and security capabilities.
“Our clients will benefit from the peace of mind that we can offer in relation to the security of their information and data when they engage with MBSL.” Says Gerry McNally, Director.
“Furthermore, we see this as raising the bar and setting a new standard for the delivery of outsourced accounting services in Ireland.” McNally continued.
“This is the latest step in MBSL’s development. We have operated in a paperless environment since 2008 and now have achieved independent ISO certification of our Information Security Management System. This reflects our ethos of adopting international best practice, particularly in relation to the security of client information.” Says Karl Houghton, Director & Company Secretary and ISO 27001 project manager.
“This is a significant milestone for MBSL, and we hope our clients see this as a further testament to our industry-leading corporate governance guidelines and security protocols” Says Kieran O’Brien, Director.
Since 1998, MBSL has been providing consultancy, accounting and payroll services to clients, from small companies to multinational organisations. In this time, through its core business of the provision of outsourced accounting services MBSL has built up an extensive client base consisting of a wide range of companies from various industry sectors.
