Our team is beyond excited to finally break the news: we have recently become an ISO 9001 and 27001 certified company which means our expertise meets internationally recognized standards. The two certifications confirm the quality of work Lemberg delivers to its clients and the security it provides along the way. Here is a brief overview of what these certifications stand for and what they mean to our clients and, of course, to our company in particular.
What is an ISO certification?
ISO, which stands for International Organization for Standardization, is an independent, international NGO that aims to develop standards for ensuring safety, efficiency, and quality of products, systems, and services. In simple terms, ISO certification confirms that the company’s service, manufacturing process, management systems, and documentation procedures meet all the requirements for quality assurance and standardization.
ISO certification is a widely used quality assurance approach that is popular far beyond the IT environment. Most importantly, it is a recurring certification so even if a company has already received it, they regularly need to prove that the quality of their work is only going up, not down. ISO offers various certifications, with each of them carrying its own requirements and numerical classification like 9001 or 27001, the certifications Lemberg has recently received.
What is an ISO 9001 certified company?
All the ISO certifications from the 9000 series focus on quality management. This means that if you’re dealing with an ISO 9001 certified company, you can expect to receive a high-quality product or service that will make it much easier for you to beat market competition later on. ISO 9001 is on the list of the organization’s most recognized standards, it requires companies to meet a number of criteria that define top quality management. In the long term, this certification helps companies level up their customer satisfaction and overall work efficiency.
The quality management system shows what guidelines and principles the company uses in their day-to-day operations. It is like a set of documents, processes, and policies, that determine the best way a company wants to and delivers its services or products to the customer. This means that an ISO 9001 certified company is always meticulous in the way it organizes workflow internally and delivers the promised results.
What is an ISO 27001 certified company?
ISO 27001 is another variation of the standardization, only, in this case, it primarily focuses on ISMS, or information security management system. This means that the certification checks if a company has proper security policies and controls to protect whatever data they receive from their clients. To get the certification, companies have to demonstrate their best security practices and even their plans on upgrading those, no matter how good they are. To see whether a company deserves to be ISO 27001 certified, a third-party representative of ISO tests the existence and effectiveness of its information security controls.
When you arrange a partnership with an external company, one way or another, you will share some classified data that needs top security and protection. This is why choosing an ISO 27001 certified company as a partner is the most reasonable solution, especially if you want your data and upcoming product to be handled with care.
What does the certification mean to Lemberg’s clients?
To put it bluntly, our ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications give another confirmation to the fact that we always deliver top-quality products and services, while following a strict security protocol and keeping all the data given to us safe. Having a third party recognize that should give our current and prospective clients even more confidence in the fact that they can rely on us when looking for a trusted partner.
Here’s what Ros Bulych, CEO at Lemberg Solutions, thinks about this achievement:
What do ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications mean to Lemberg?
With every single process being properly described and documented, all of our team members know what level of performance they need to deliver. On top of that, they always keep in shape to take new quality control and security testing and prove that their expertise meets the highest standards. This basically means that everything in the company runs like a Swiss watch: everyone knows what they are doing, how they should do things, and what rules they have to observe.
Lyubomyr Dutko, CTO at Lemberg Solutions, says the certifications mark a major milestone for the company:
It’s our honor to be an ISO certified company now and we are more than happy to share our expertise with future clients. If you feel like getting more information on our certifications or are interested in starting a partnership with Lemberg, feel free to reach out to us.
