“Our message to our customers is to trust us with the operation of their on-premise and cloud infrastructure.

By achieving these four ISO certifications BIOS has further demonstrated our commitment to quality service provision and innovation.” Adam Wolf, Technical Director, BIOS Middle East
What do the different ISO’s mean for our customers?
ISO 27001:2013 is a widely-adopted global security standard that sets out requirements and best practices for a systematic approach to manage information that's based on periodic risk assessments. ISO 27001 provides customers an assurance that BIOS have developed a best-in-class Information Security Management System (ISMS), which can manage information security risks that affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
ISO 9001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). This standard demonstrates BIOS’s ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
ISO 22301 is a standard for business continuity. Accreditation means BIOS is able to guarantee planned and effective business continuity management at all levels, including organization-wide identification and understanding of critical business processes, the impact of disruption, and timely as well as orderly responses to business disruptions. This standard protects against and reduces the impact of a disruptive event, while ensuring that business continues with minimal impact to customers.
ISO 20000-1 specifies requirements for BIOS to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and improve an information technology management system. The requirements include the design, transition, delivery and improvement of services to fulfil agreed service requirements of our customers.
