SPECIALISTS IN INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (ISO/IEC 27001)  

 

Why choose Gamma?

Here are eight good reasons to buy from Gamma:

1. Gamma’s consultants are leaders in their fields

Our consultants have many years experience in their fields of expertise and are internationally recognised for their knowledge and commitment. They regularly speak at conferences, publish articles and author books. They solve problems, not just identify them. Our client list demonstrates our reputation and credibility.

2. Gamma advises governments, large organisations, charities and SMEs

Our clients are diverse, world-wide and wide-ranging. We develop long-term relationships; in one case, lasting more than 20 years. We build and blend experience, familiarity, loyalty and value for money.

3. Gamma has an in-depth understanding of standards

Gamma was one of the developers of the original British ISMS standard (BS 7799-2: 2002) that become ISO/IEC 27001:2005. We were active participants in the recent revision of ISO/IEC 27001. As National Body Experts we get involved with many other standards in the ISO/IEC 27000 series, and act as project editors as well. We helped develop UK and European security evaluation criteria, as well as the “Common Criteria” international standard (ISO/IEC 15408). Of course, we don’t just develop standards; we use them in our daily work. We were one of the first SMEs to be certified against ISO/IEC 27001. We have helped many organisations, large and small, to achieve certification.

4. Gamma is active in research

Gamma has always been active in the field of information security research. Since 2000 we have concentrated on management systems and internal control. Much of our expertise does not come from reading books, it comes from our own scientific research and innovative thinking. We helped develop the IMS-Smart management system philosophy which includes the “tell it like a story” approach to risk assessment/risk treatment; an architecture for integrated management systems and the concept of opportunity exploitation plans. We also have interests in the application of security management to industrial control systems, and to the particular security problems experienced by small companies and charities.

5. Gamma has provided consultancy across the globe

Gamma has assisted customers to develop their own capabilities. We have done this in India, Kuwait, Mauritius, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, as well as in the UK. We have done this for very large organisations and very small ones; well established organisations and start-ups. We have run training courses for the British Government and in India, Kuwait, Mauritius, Norway, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea and Switzerland for other organisations. We have carried out ISMS external audits, participated in an ISMS assessment that led to the accreditation of an certification body and have performed the quality assurance role for another.

6. Gamma is experienced in dealing with senior stakeholders

Gamma is used to dealing with senior people, talking their language and seeing the world from their perspective.

7. Gamma is an established company with a worldwide reputation
