Prior to partnering with Aspire, Opencast faced the task of managing its rapid expansion while simultaneously working to strengthen its security protocols. While maintaining robust security, the company sought to streamline its Information Security Management System (ISMS) to facilitate more efficient management.
The need for a comprehensive risk assessment process was also paramount to ensure the adequacy of existing systems in safeguarding the company, its employees, and clients against the escalating threat of cybercrime. Alongside these concerns, Opencast faced mounting requests from both current and potential clients for extensive evidence of its security protocols. Attaining ISO 27001 certification emerged as a pivotal goal to enhance Opencast’s contractual engagements and present an industry-recognised framework for information security risk management.
