ID are constantly developing, and quality management and cyber security certifications are something worth shouting about!

ID ISO 9001 cyber security certification
ID ISO 27001 cyber security certification

What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 is the international Standard for quality management. Businesses that are certified commit to consistent quality and customer satisfaction. The certification can also help a company to expand their client base and open up more opportunities. 

What is required to become ISO 9001 certified?

“Intelligent Decisioning Ltd. already had a lot of requirements needed for ISO 9001 in place as they had already achieved certification in ISO 27001, the Standard for information security management. Meeting the requirements for ISO 9001 was therefore a breeze for them. 

Internal Information security and quality awareness are gained through training, company culture, values and strong internal processes and policies, all of which support the organisation for further success and improvement. Intelligent Decisioning Ltd. implemented all of these processes and are now set to continue to strive to satisfy their customers.”

Karen Knaggs, QMS UK

As well as gaining first time accreditation for ISO 9001, we were recently reaccredited for ISO 27001 (Information Security).

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is recognised worldwide as the standard for information security management.  

How did we achieve ISO 27001?

ID  demonstrated that we meet the high standards set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) through our achievement of the ISO 27001 cyber security certification.  

To qualify, we proved that we could not only prevent but defend against potential data system vulnerabilities. This was achieved through a comprehensive suite of information security controls.  

An annual audit, carried out by an external third party, ensures these systems continue to meet the stringent requirements set out in the ISO 27001 standard.  

We also recertified as a Cyber Essentials organisation to further strengthen our position as an organisation who prioritise the security of information. 

A word from our Managing Director

 “We are planning to use our accreditations to provide our customers with increased reliability and security of our systems and information, improve customer and business partner confidence, increase our business resilience and align more closely with customer requirements.”  

“Intelligent Decisioning Ltd are committed to quality management and keeping customer data safe. Achieving ISO 9001 and 27001 has allowed Intelligent Decisioning Ltd to successfully tender for a number of opportunities that would otherwise have been out of scope”   

Managing Director, Andy Smith

Meet Ellen, our new Marketing Coordinator!

Share socially -

Tell us a little bit about yourself! 

I’m Ellen, I’m 21 years old and have just graduated from the University of Nottingham studying English. I’m from Essex and my biggest goal is to be able to travel and meet as many people from around the world as possible. 

Give us some fun facts about you! 

I have a twin sister and three other siblings, so I have always been used to a busy and hectic lifestyle! Over the years I’ve tried numerous hobbies– netball, piano, clarinet, football (for a very brief and unsuccessful period of time), cricket, ballet, and musical theatre. My friends would describe me as crazily busy as I’m always piling projects onto my plate and am constantly in search of the next challenge or adventure! 

Give us three emojis to describe your first impressions of the team! 

The computer emoji because they’re all tech wizzes with a lot of knowledge about things I didn’t even know existed! The handshake emoji because even remotely everyone was very welcoming, and I can already tell they care about working together as a successful team. The T-shirt because I was very happy to hear that they take a relaxed and casual approach to workwear (particularly since on my first day it was 28 degrees!)

What will be your biggest challenge in your first few weeks?  

My biggest challenge will be settling into a full time remote working week as I’m so used to being out and about and seeing lots of people.  

Where did you hear about us and why did you choose us? 

This role was advertised on a recruitment agencies page at my university. I thought it would be so exciting to branch out and start working for a company working in a completely new field to me. I think working with ID will be great for me as I’ll be able to work alongside their current marketing strategist and eventually learn how to develop and implement successful marketing strategies of my own.
