Case Study – Barry Bennett

Barry Bennett is a family owned business that was founded in 1971. From humble beginning’s it quickly grew into one of the largest and most successful office supply businesses in the Greater Manchester Area.

Following the retirement of its founder in 2000, the family dynasty continued but by then had expanded further into the field of educational supplies for disabled students, having a focus on a single source of supply on what was before then a fragmented and fracture supply chain for the individual.

With increasing emphasis on quality standards within the industry Barry Bennett’s realised a need to acquire the enhanced 2701-Information Security Standard and approached OLC for assistance. Our package of measure included:

  • The writing of the company risk asset register
  • Comprehensive in-house 2701 training materials and package
  • Internal audit of security protocols
  • Handling on-site visits from the awarding body

With our assistance Barry Bennett were able to acquire the standard at the first time of asking and in record time.
