Most people know Will.i.am as the frontman of the Black Eyed Peas, or more recently as the enigmatic guy on BBC1’s Saturday night TV show The Voice, but did you know he is also Intel’s director of creative innovation, co-founder of Coca-Cola’s EKOCYCLE initiative and a tech entrepreneur in his own right? Yep, changed my thinking too.
“Big data”. No two words have been more commonly used across Digital Marketing over the last 12 months or so. It seems like every digital marketing event (and there are a lot) has a Big Data themed keynote, every digital news website (think Econsultancy, Mashable, The Drum) has a weekly Big Data article and every software vendor has developed a Big Data message. The Guardian even has a dedicated Big Data area on their website. But what exactly is ‘Big Data’? For such a popular topic, there is a large amount of confusion. Let’s have a look at a few definitions:
Wikipedia goes with:
Big data is a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications
We are proud to announce the news that we continue to be an IS0 27001 certified company for a further 12 months.
Recently, we had our annual surveillance visit from an external UKAS certification body, which involved a two day audit at Auros HQ, checking that our working practices are in line with our ISMS (Information Security Management System).
After a rigorous two days of checks and inspections, we were greeted with the news that we would continue to be certified.
This is our second year of being an ISO 27001 certified company, however the roots of our ISMS stem back to early 2009 when we began the process of formalising our working practices in relation to information security. In a nutshell, the point of our ISMS is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our physical and information assets. We continually look to improve the way we work and the service we provide and continued ISO accreditation is a great endorsement of our efforts.
