Newcastle-based global sales and marketing specialist, durhamlane, has been awarded the internationally acclaimed ISO27001 certification for its implementation of Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). 

This prestigious certification recognises durhamlane’s commitment to managing and protecting information and data. Achieving the accreditation required a rigorous audit of the company’s information security controls, policies, and procedures and saw the firm investing in a full-time Sales Operations department to optimise data transfer and quality. 

Speaking about being awarded the accreditation, Jake Spence, managing director of durhamlane, said: “As a global sales and marketing business, we take the security of our clients’ information very seriously. We have invested heavily in constructing a robust framework to protect the security, privacy, and compliance of that information. Achieving this certification is a major milestone for us and lets our clients know that their data is in safe hands. 

“Ultimately, information security is the responsibility of everyone in any organisation and the way our team has got on board with our new ISMS and policies has been a cornerstone of the successful audit process. It truly reflects the company’s ongoing best practices in pursuit of meeting the most rigorous of industry standards.”  

ISO27001 is the international standard for information security management, recognised by governments, businesses, and organisations worldwide. The certification demonstrates that durhamlane has implemented a comprehensive and systematic approach to managing and protecting information, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability. 

The certification comes after an excellent financial year for durhamlane, with a 31% revenue growth and turnover surpassing £6.3m. The firm has secured a significant number of 6-figure contracts and expanded its presence in North America, with large global clients such as RS Group, Siemens Healthineers, ABB, Nasdaq, Wolters Kluwer, Belden, and British Council.
