Vital Technology Group, the Wetherby-based provider of business IT services, has achieved ISO certifications which recognise its commitment and adoption of best practice in the fields of information security and quality management.
The two accreditations, ISO 27001 and ISO 9001, were awarded following a rigorous external audit and ensure that Vital’s systems, processes and procedures meet the internationally recognised standards.
ISO 9001 is an international standard that helps to ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services; while ISO27001 relates to information security management systems.
The independent inspection examined the robustness of Vital’s security controls, and the importance that it places on the protection of its customers’ data.

All of our clients, regardless of the sector that they operate in, are guaranteed the same level of customer service and security of the data that they entrust us with. We’re very proud to have achieved this independent certification and to join the ranks of a select few.
