The accreditation, carried out by CPG, covers the whole of bluedog’s operation and follows a six-month exercise involving staff in four countries. The London-based company – which has representatives in Spain and Holland and a security operations centre in the Phillippines – was established in 2019 to make 24-hour monitoring and other cybersecurity services accessible to companies of all sizes. Its distributor network now covers the UK, the Middle East, India, the Far East and Australia.

Paul Lomax, co-founder of bluedog, said “ISO 27001 is one of the ultimate security standards and achieving accreditation has always been part of our strategic growth plan. It demonstrates to our clients that we are leading by example and that we take information security very seriously indeed.

“From the company’s point of view, it has also been a very worthwhile exercise, giving us first-hand experience of the world’s most widely used standard and ensuring that staff at all levels have a security mindset.”
