As companies grow and evolve, they often must deal with one form of compliance if not multiple! Most IT companies can offer rudimentary technical support. However, one of our main differentiators is our compliance services. Often growing companies need to seek a 3rd party consulting firm outside of their IT department to handle the compliance. Not with ICE! We have helped countless companies with a variety of compliance requirements over the years.
Not only do we staff compliance specialists that can be assigned to your technical team of experts, but we also are SOC 2 Type II Certified. If your company is looking for
help with compliance from an IT provider they must have their SOC 2 certification, and only about 5% of managed IT providers have their actual certification.
Time consuming and tedious compliance can chew up an immense amount of time and resources. With ICE, your teams can remain focused on growing your core business while we take care of the rest!

Biotech Company Enlists
ICE Consulting’s Assistance
in ISO 27001 Compliance
Industry: Biotech & Life Sciences
Company size: 1,000+ Employees ($4 Billion Market Cap)
Location: South San Francisco, California
Read Case Study
A $100-million-a-year biotech company was seeking compliance based on the ISO 27001:2013 standards published by the International Standards Organization (ISO) located in Switzerland. The ISO 27001 standard is the framework that quantifies the vulnerabilities and threats of the ISMS (information security management system) of an international organization. It includes assessing the processes and policies of how a company uses and controls data. ISO 27001 is considered one of the toughest compliance certifications to obtain and maintain.
This synthetic biology company hired ICE Consulting for help with the IT-related portions of both the preparation and evidence gathering phase, and the audit phase of the ISO certification process beginning in 2018. ICE provided the necessary documents for:
- Capacity planning and incident response planning
- Diagrams such as network time standards and physical network layout
- General policy and security consulting
- Consultation with the company during the audit process to assist and answer questions from the auditors
- 100+ hours of consultation
With the help of ICE Consulting’s compliance specialists, our biotech client became ISO 27001 certified in late 2019, and we have continued to help the company maintain its certified status every year since then. We also assisted our client in obtaining an additional ISO certification for the manufacture of medical equipment, ISO 13485.
