  1. congrats to them even though we don’t know what it means.
    Abi it would add to my account balance that is looking like this year in numbers, till then am unintrested.
    Lets meet again another time on @gidichaser thank you.

  2. This Standard has nothing to do with Infotech Security. It is only about Service delivery Compliance and following of right processes!
    If it is not ISO27000, then their infotech security still needs to be checked.
