Akitra’s Automation Revolutionized Sydney, Australia-based Shazamme’s Compliance Journey.
Shazamme is a global web platform specializing in recruiting and staffing solutions based in Sydney, Australia. With aspirations to cement its reputation as a leader in the industry, Shazamme recognized the need to obtain ISO 27001 certification— an internationally recognized standard for information security management systems. However, as a small, dynamic team, Shazamme faced significant challenges navigating the complex and time-consuming certification process. Shazamme needed a streamlined solution to ensure compliance and align with their resource limitations. By leveraging Akitra’s Andromeda compliance automation platform, Shazamme found a simplified solution tailored to Shazamme’s unique needs.

The Challenge

Shazamme faced daunting challenges while striving to attain ISO certification, a critical milestone for their growth plans. The intricate compliance requirements demanded a more efficient approach. In their pursuit of accreditation, Shazamme sought a streamlined solution to navigate the complex compliance landscape while aiming for excellence in the global recruiting and staffing web platform industry.

The challenges they faced included:

Resource Constraints: Shazamme operates as a small team. Rick Maré is deeply involved in various aspects of the business, making it difficult to allocate sufficient time and resources to the compliance process.

Complexity: ISO 27001 certification is a comprehensive framework that requires a deep understanding of security controls and policy management. Shazamme needed a solution to simplify this complexity.

Competitive Edge: Shazamme wanted to stand out by achieving ISO 27001 certification, recognizing that their competitors still needed to complete this certification. They sought an instant recognition of their commitment to security.

Cost and Time-Effectiveness: The manual compliance process they had experienced in the past was costly, time-consuming, and prone to errors. Shazamme needed a more efficient solution.
