AMERICAN SYSTEMS announced Monday it was awarded ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 20000-1:2018 certificates from Intertek. The certifications confirm AMERICAN SYSTEMS information security management system for business services and service management services adhere to internationally-recognized standards.
“As part of our continuous improvement and quality assurance initiatives, the impetus for AMERICAN SYSTEMS and its dedicated employee-owners to attain these certifications was to ensure consistency in the way we handle our data and deliver our services,” commented a previous Wash 100 Award recipient Peter Smith, AMERICAN SYSTEMS’ president and CEO.
The certifications were presented by Intertek, a total quality assurance provider for industries around the world. The ISO 27001:2013 certification proves AMERICAN’s information security management systems for business functions are highly efficient. The ISO 20000-1:2018 relates to the company’s service management services.
The two certifications coincided with AMERICAN’s quality management system’s recertification for selected programs and corporate managed processes under ISO 9001:2015 standard in December of 2020.
“We realize the growing importance of information security and top-notch service delivery, both of which are vital to our customers. To be certified under both standards virtually simultaneously is a landmark achievement that our employee-owners can take pride in accomplishing,” concluded Smith.
