DMI Earns ISO 27001:2005 Certification
International Quality Assurance Certification Recognizes DMI’s Effective Process in Mitigating Risk in Information Security Management
Bethesda, MD—May 18, 2011—DMI (www.dminc.com), a leading IT solutions and business strategy consulting firm, announced today that it has earned an International Organization for Standardization Certification in Information Security Management Systems (ISO 27001:2005).
ISO 27001:2005 is an Information Security Management System (ISMS) standard published in 2005. It formally specifies a management system that brings information security under explicit management control. DMI has earned its ISO 27001:2005 certification by implementing proven processes for mitigating risk in information security.
ISO 27001 requires that management:
- Systematically examine the organization’s information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities and impacts;
- Design and implement a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable; and
- Adopt an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organization’s information security needs on an ongoing basis.
Leading government and commercial organizations have come to trust DMI to reliably and securely manage their most vital information assets. Formal certification of DMI’s information security procedures offers further assurance that DMI can be counted on to safeguard its clients’ most critical information resources as it delivers transformational services and solutions in the areas of strategic business transformation, software systems modernization, enterprise information services, cyber security solutions, and fiscal discipline for federal and other government agencies.
This is DMI’s second ISO certification. In 2009, the company received its ISO 9001:2008 certification for project management of IT and account services for Federal and other government agencies, including the development of software.
