2018 year in review at Qualsys

Governance, risk and compliance professionals have enjoyed an exciting year, whether they've been focusing on implementing new systems, optimising processes or improving their culture of quality. 

Qualsys has been right at the heart of this activity, welcoming new team members, new products and customer old and new.

We couldn't have done it without our loyal customers. We are now approaching 500 implementations with the addition of the new customers below: 


Our 2018 highlights

We started off the year by launching our GRC training workshop calendar.

Throughout 2018 we ran eight workshops on hot topics such as:

  • The GDPR
  • ISO 9001:2015
  • Building a culture of quality
  • Risk management

We welcomed attendees from E.ON, Plusnet, Severn Trent Water and more.

Kate became part of the BSI's quality committee in November, meaning she will influence and guide changes to future standards. 

We welcomed some fresh faces to the services, development and account management teams.

And to close off the year, we passed last week's ISO 9001:2015 surveillance audit with no non-conformances and a glowing report.

2018 was our biggest and best year to date. But we can't wait to show you what we have in store for 2019.
