“A bad system will defeat a good person every time”
– W. Edwards Deming

Your organization’s management system largely determines outcomes such as security, safety, sustainability, satisfaction and profitability. The average cost of a single incident can total over $5,000,000. The cost of attacks can in fact be astronomical. Consider the cyber attack on shipping giant Maersk in 2017, with reported losses of approx$300 million.

Cyber threats are constantly evolving. Management systems that are pro-active in identifying and addressing the risks are better equipped to adapt to this rapidly changing environment. A well implemented cyber security management system increase the reaction time of a company to an incident by 75%, should one occur. Often cyber attacks happen due to a lack of awareness of personnel or a lack of basic security measures.

For over 30 years QMII has asked organizations to ‘Appreciate Your Management System’ and to develop it based on the “as-is” of the system; end result- a system that works.  We do not come with templates to replace your existing system. QMII consultants work with your team to assist you in adding value to your organization while also meeting the new requirements.

QMII works with your team to ensure that your organization gets a complete package, which includes motivated managers and leaders. Our cyber security solutions include integration of the requirements of ISO 27001 into your existing management system. This includes addressing the IT, Physical and Human risks. In addition, QMII can also assist with end to end software solutions and the necessary IT support to ensure a stable infrastructure.

QMII exhibited great proficiency and efficiency in providing all deliverables on schedule, including enhancements that improved the overall quality of the final product. By using their past experience of management systems, QMII avoided potential pitfalls during product redesign and development to help ensure a seamless transition phase from the old work procedures to the new centralized work procedures.

Here are some tough questions to consider:

  • Does your management system address the cyber security concerns of your stakeholders?
  • How well does your system address risks from cyber threats to enable  a pro-active and ready system?
  • Does your system identify risks/opportunities to drive continual improvement action?
  • How is the performance of the system measured?

What can we Do for You?

QMII’s goal is to enable organizations to successfully apply process and system thinking in the real world to fulfill the management’s objectives. We help your organization realize the benefits of achieving a functional management system, that also conforms to ISO & other standards.

consulting options

We work with you on your management system so it can be used in one office, several facilities or across a global network of locations for excellent execution.

We offer three broad approaches to meet your needs and budget:

  1. Enable your team: via our tailored on-site, virtual or public classes;
  2. Share the responsibility: work with our management systems consulting team;
  3. Outsource your project: we develop your management system.

We look forward to hearing about your objectives so that we may tailor viable solutions that deliver the results you demand of your management system. Since each company’s objectives and existing systems are different, QMII will work with you to customize the solution to meet your requirements and your needs.

QMII has been a pioneer in integrating quality systems into a broader business context. We never accepted the limited boundaries of being mere ISO consultants, and instead have developed approaches that will help you enable your management system to:

  • Fulfill objectives and other requirements;
  • Meet external cyber security mandates;
  • Ensure corporate social responsibility; and,
  • Address risk, prevent loss and add value.
