Boom! Pancentric secures ISO certification for the 6th year in a row

Pancentric's commitment to the ISO 27001 standard has been constant for over half a decade now. And quite rightly with cyber threats on the rise. 

Boom! Pancentric secures ISO certification for the 6th year in a row

Equipped to cope for 6 years

Be honest, would you say your business is in the vulnerable camp, or in the equipped to cope camp when it comes to cyber risk?

Back in 2018, pre-ISO certification, Pancentric was definitely in the vulnerable camp.

Like most organisations, we had a number of information security controls but we didn't have what's called an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

Without an ISMS, a company's security controls are typically disorganised and disjointed, having been implemented often as point solutions to specific situations and this can leave the business vulnerable to cyber risks.

I'm delighted to say that Pancentric is now firmly in the equipped to cope camp - and has been for 6 years. We underwent our LRQA audit last week and secured formal confirmation of our continued certifcation this week. 

Cyber threats are a real danger

It's easy to brush off cyber threat stats as scaremongering or not directly relevant to me. But its very real. It's happened to us in the past, it can happen to your business.

Our ISO commitment has helped us minimise the impact of attacks and in turn equipped us to make our systems and defences even more robust.

Some sobering stats from Forbes;  

  • There were 2,365 cyberattacks in 2023 with 343,338,964 victims.
  • 2023 saw a 72% increase in data breaches since 2021, which held the previous all-time record. A data breach costs $4.45 million on average.
  • Email is the most common vector for malware, with around 35% of malware delivered via email in 2023.Ninety-four percent of organizations have reported email security incidents.
  • Business email compromises accounted for $2.7 billion in losses in 2022.
  • Information security jobs are projected to grow by 32% between 2022 and 2032.
