IM Welcomes Applied Risk Management LtdMarch 11, 2015
A new member of the IM Business Club is Applied Risk Management Ltd. This is a new company that commenced trading on 1st February 2015.
Applied Risk Management Ltd was formed by Andy Mills with the aim of assisting UK-based organisations big or small to define, implement and maintain management systems for Quality, Information Security, IT Service Management and Business Continuity & Crisis Management.
Andy has senior management experience with large and small businesses, including start-ups, covering telecoms, data centres, IT systems design, deployment, operations and support. He also has experience of data transmission equipment design, manufacture and software development. Andy is a founding member and shareholder of a data centre company which is now the UK’s fastest growing data centre business. Andy implemented management systems which enabled this data centre company to achieve ISO certifications for Quality, Information Security, IT Service Management, Environmental Management and Health & Safety Management.
This means he knows how businesses run, the challenges they face, and how to implement effective corporate governance, risk and compliance (GRC) management systems. i.e. all the ‘non-functional’ aspects required by a business to make it scalable, resilient, and able to fulfil its obligations and customer’s requirements.
Andy said that in his experience Government departments, local authorities and the larger & more discerning organisations increasingly require their suppliers to hold relevant ISO certifications such as ISO 9001 for quality and ISO/IEC 27001 for information security. Being independently audited and certified against an internationally recognised standard speaks volumes about the integrity of your organisation.
In addition to being a member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology and a member of the Business Continuity Institute, Andy is a qualified ISO management systems auditor.
Contact Andy by email or by phone 07773 402952 if you think your organisation would benefit from assistance with defining and implementing policies, processes and management systems, regardless of whether or not you aspire to gain ISO certifications. If you already have ISO certifications Andy can assist you with internal and supplier auditing and/or transitioning to new versions of the ISO standards. Andy is offering competitive consultancy rates for IM members and local businesses.
