Conosco is the Best Place to Work in Security in the UK!

We are proud to announce that Conosco is officially the ‘Best Place to Work in Security’; a title bestowed on us at the 2017 Computing Security Excellence Awards. These awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry’s best security companies, solutions, products and personalities.

Conosco won the award due to the emphasis we place on security, both internally and for our clients. “I am very pleased that Conosco’s commitment to security has been acknowledged with the receipt of this award,” says Information Security Manager Hylton Stewart, “we aim to be a model organisation, setting an example to the wider industry, with security at the heart of everything we do. We ensure that employees of all levels are well-briefed and confident in security. With knowledgeable security leadership, a culture of security has fed down to the entire company.”

Adopting a risk-based approach to our security methodology, a significant portion of Conosco’s resources go towards ensuring we recognise, appraise and mitigate identified risks when it comes to our own information security (IS) stance, as well as that of the clients for whom we provide support and security advisory services.

To ensure that effective security is a company-wide goal, we conduct monthly security awareness training, implement – and audit adherence to – best-practice policies and procedures, and continue to research the latest software and tools to make systems more secure. We transfer this expertise to benefit our clients and the broader MSP industry through our Conosco Security Division: our tailored security service that brings together industry-leading consultants, solutions and threat intelligence to deliver bespoke security strategies and full-scope roadmaps.

“To win such a prestigious, industry-recognised award is a wonderful affirmation that the Conosco approach to business, technology and our team culture is setting us apart as a Managed Services Provider. I’m excited about our multi-national company’s future as we continue to raise the bar when it comes to what clients should expect from their end-to-end technology provider,” says Conosco CEO Anders Reeves.

Demonstrating Conosco’s commitment to information security, we have adopted and been certified against the latest ISO 27001:2013 framework. We formally subscribe to and utilise the global best practices for an information security management system (ISMS). Achieving our ISO certification within only 10 months reflects the strong security culture already built-in to our staffing practices, and security-first technical project designs.

For Conosco, information security is not only about managing infrastructure and data, it is how we go about our business.
