CRI Advantage Recertified for ISO 27001:2013 – Information Security Management System


CRI Advantage (CRI) is a mature, process-driven organization providing services and solutions to customers spanning commercial, state and local governments and the federal government. CRI is dedicated to investing in standards to ensure high quality and exceptional value for its customers. CRI was recently re-certified for International Standards Organization (ISO) 27001 certification. 

The ISO 27001 is an international standard that requires an information security management system to be established, implemented, maintained, and continually improved within the organization. The ISO 27001 standard preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed. To achieve this certification, an external auditor reviewed CRI’s implementation for adherence to the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard. 

We take our information security approach very seriously at CRI. Attacks on small businesses, technology providers and government contractors have substantially increased over the last several years as attackers have found these are easy entry points into larger organizations. Protecting the data of our customers, employees, and our company is a top priority for us,” stated Monte Brookshier, CEO of CRI Advantage, Inc. “In response, we have put in place extraordinary proactive processes, risk-based methodologies, and best practices to ensure that information we are responsible for protecting is managed, stored securely and monitored so our clients can have complete confidence in the safety of the digital information they share with us. Gaining ISO 27001: 2013 certification allows us to deliver a rigorous and unique level of Information Security protection that very few of our competitors can offer at this time,” Mr. Brookshier continued.
