Trendspek gains ISO accreditation for Quality & Information Security
Sydney, Australia, 18th June 2020 – Sydney based Trendspek, is rapidly gaining traction as a global leader in Digital Twins through its interactive asset visualisation software. Trendspek transforms how infrastructure is assessed and managed through the creation of digital replica’s of physical structures, enabling remote access to asset data and significant productivity and cost efficiencies.
The tech startup has now just been awarded two ISO Certifications including ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 9001:2015 for its Quality and Information Security Management systems making it one of the few software providers to achieve this level of certification.
Data security is of critical importance across key industries adopting the technology, including Oil and Gas, Rail, Facilities management and Telecommunications. “Being the asset software of choice for so many multinational organisations we know that data security continues to be one of their highest priorities. Achieving ISO certification displays our commitment to the highest standards of data protection and product quality” says CEO Derek Feebrey.
The rigorous International Standard ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management Systems and International Standard ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security Management Systems was achieved after an exhaustive audit of the company’s internal operations and systems.
Trendspek now complies with the following management systems’ standard requirements:
- ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System Requirements
- ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System Requirements
With COVID-19 restrictions forcing the industry to move to remote data almost overnight, the risks associated with data security increased significantly. Trendspek continues to prove its commitment to protecting sensitive data, ensuring quality and maintaining reliability by meeting the extensive criteria of the ISO standards. Trendspek pledges to maintain the standards by complying with regular surveillance requirements and audits.
The Australian owned and operated company is growing rapidly and has just raised over $1.1M in seed funding led by the Sydney Angels investment group. Digital Twins are becoming a necessity in today’s environment, offering remote access to asset information, improved safety and a more efficient and cost effective means of managing maintenance and planning.

The ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards helps organisations keep information assets secure. Using this family of standards organisations can manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to them by third parties.
About ISO 27001
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the best-known standard in the family providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an international standard for IT systems that provides the policies and procedures for keeping a company’s IT assets secure. A major part of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is keeping an organisation’s risk management strategy in check, identifying problems that may put a company’s data at risk and putting into place the processes and procedures to prevent problems occurring.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 brings together the systems and guidelines, plus certification if a business is audited to analyse its processes. Before ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (or BS7799 as it was first known) was developed in the 1990s, organisations often had multiple services handling the data security and risk, and so ISO/IEC 27001:2013 was developed to bring all of these together under one standard.
To achieve ISO/IEC 27001:2013 compliance there are seven areas companies need to manage: the context of an organisation, leadership, planning, support, operational planning and processes, evaluation process and improvements. ISO/IEC 27001:2013 establishes a higher trust rating between organisations of different sizes since IT infrastructure will carry the same security requirements, making it easier to transfer and store sensitive information.
About ISO 9001
ISO/IEC 9001:2015 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement).
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO/IEC 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
