1 min read

Q-CTRL, a developer of quantum technologies through quantum control infrastructure software, has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2022 certification.

The certification makes Q-CTRL the first independent software vendor (ISV) in the quantum technology sector to obtain this internationally recognised standard.

The standard outlines best practices for information security management system (ISMS) implementation and conformity with this International Standard means that an organisation or business has put in place a system to manage risks related to the security of data owned or handled by the company, and that this system respects all relevant best practices and principles. In many cases it is a mandatory precondition for commercial engagement with large vendors.

The policies and controls Q-CTRL enacted in obtaining ISO 27001 certification strengthen the company’s position as a trusted partner delivering software products to the quantum tech industry and quantum computing end-users.

"Achieving ISO 27001 certification is a significant milestone for Q-CTRL. It formalises the emphasis on professional product engineering, delivery, and security. As we work with some of the largest tech enterprises in the world, it's crucial for us to ensure our security practices are at global standard," said Matthew Rogers, Head of Operations, Q-CTRL.

Q-CTRL is currently collaborating with a number of private and public-sector clients including IBM, Xerox PARC, and Transport for New South Wales and being able to provide this new level of assurance will help to eliminate hurdles that typically slow down the due diligence and contracting processes, allowing Q-CTRL to grow revenue-generating opportunities more rapidly.
