Share Article

Irish owned company, Certification Europe announced that they have successfully completed an audit and certification of Wellington IT Solutions. Certification Europe audited the company and deemed them compliant with the international best practice standard for information security, ISO 27001. The ISO 27001 standard specifies a management system that demonstrates information security is controlled on an ongoing basis, mandating specific requirements to show control across the organisation.

Certification Europe provides certification and training services in the fields of Quality Management (ISO 9001), Environmental Management (ISO 14001), Health & Safety (OHAS 18001), IT Service Management (ISO 20000-1), Information Security (ISO 27001) and Energy Management (IS 393 / EN 16001). Those certifications are critical to companies seeking every possible advantage in markets that have become increasingly competitive as consumers tighten their belts and seek trust and risk management in the companies they want to do business with.

Wellington IT Solutions are the largest provider to the top 50 Credit Unions in Ireland, and have been key providers of IT software and data backup for Credit Unions in Ireland. Credit Unions have come a long way in the last 20 years and now process a full range of financial services in line with those expected from a bank. Operating to the highest level means that Credit Unions can set themselves apart from other organisations in the financial services sector and give confidence to their members that they are doing everything they can to secure their information.

At a time when all financial institutions are under severe pressure to reassure their customers, Wellington IT Solutions have worked hard to ensure that Credit Unions in Ireland are able to prove their transparency and information security. Managing Director of Wellington IT, Alex Dunne said;

“We have worked with Credit Unions in Ireland for over 20 years, we owe them a duty of care and have worked closely with them to ensure that they have their information security requirements in place. We are particularly delighted that Wellington IT helped the first Credit Union anywhere in the world to achieve the ISO 27001”

Dunne added;

“As we worked to assure the customers of Credit Unions that their information was being protected, we wanted to ‘walk the walk’ ourselves, and so we set about working to achieve the ISO 27001 for Wellington IT. We enlisted an independent body, Certification Europe whose team really understand the Credit Union marketplace, to ensure that our efforts were complimentary to our credit union customers by achieving the ISO as a supplier.”
Commenting on the award of the ISO 27001 certificate to Wellington IT Solutions, CEO of Certification Europe, Michael Brophy added;
“This recent award to Wellington IT which they worked hard to achieve, has proven that the Credit Unions who have a long and well established relationship with the IT company have placed their trust in the right organization. This standard has become hugely important for companies as they work to ensure that they are meeting international standards.”
