NSF International and ISMS Solutions Expanding Partnership

Offerings help organizations navigate requirements of multiple information security standards

Published: Monday, February 6, 2017 - 18:19


(NSF International: Ann Arbor, MI) -- NSF International and ISMS Solutions are expanding their partnership to help organizations successfully attain the requirements of multiple information security standards through a single service. This partnership offers organizations full-service information security consulting and verification services.

In order to conduct business with the federal government, federal contractors are required to meet numerous standards and requirements. These requirements now include multiple information security standards and guidelines. Additionally, many private organizations are voluntarily adopting these same information security requirements to ensure the safety of their supply chains, consumer databases, brand images and intellectual property assets.

NSF International and ISMS Solutions have partnered to expand their service offerings. These services include a proprietary software platform, on-site consulting and cutting-edge technology that help organizations develop, implement and verify compliance with the multiple information security requirements and platforms they seek to meet.

“In evolving business practices, sending data and information that can be proprietary or sensitive to organizations is becoming more commonplace, which increases the potential for added security risks,” said Tom Chestnut, Senior Vice President, NSF International. “The strength in the partnership between NSF International and ISMS Solutions is that businesses and organizations can receive full-service information security consulting, implementation and verification services from two trusted organizations through a single service.”

NSF International and ISMS Solutions originally partnered to create NSF Conformance Works, the first risk and compliance tool designed to help organizations and their supply chains assess their conformance to the new requirements of the revised quality standard, ISO 9001:2015.

“ISMS Solutions and NSF International are leaders in their industries, making this expansion a great asset to companies looking to verify that they meet information security standards,” said Jason Clark, Chief Executive Officer of ISMS Solutions. “Our partnership provides organizations expertise in consulting and compliance to multiple information security requirements.”
