Risk Associates has certified Contour Software (Pvt.) Ltd Pakistan as per the Information Security Management System, which complies with the standard's requirements to meet the need of customers through an effective quality management system.
Contour Software started in Karachi in 2010 with a little over a dozen people and has grown to more than 1,400 staff in less than 12 years, with offices in Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad, serving all client divisions across the globe.
Contour was founded in 2010 as a result of 18 months of pre-acquisition diligence, as well as pilot projects involving Pakistani freelancers, and Constellation Software's ultimate acquisition of Gladstone PLC UK (via Constellation's Jonas operating group). Syed Bilal Mahmood, who had been working to prove the concept within Constellation's Perseus (formerly named CHS) operating group, moved from Canada to Pakistan, post-acquisition, to take the Karachi branch forward, as a joint venture between the two operating groups, before eventually expanding to serve most of the parent organization's operating divisions.
During the ceremony, the Managing Director – Mr Kashif Hassan and Mr Noman Jehangir – Director of Certification Services at Risk Associates, presented the certificate to Mr Bilal Masood – Managing Director of Contour Software (Pvt.) Ltd on the 10th May 2022. The event was attended by Mr Waseem Ahmed – Director Finance and Operations, Ms Javeria Syed – Director HR and Mr Zafar Abbas – Jr. GRC Analyst with other teammates.
Risk Associates congratulate Contour Software (Pvt.) Ltd on achieving this compliance milestone and consider this a mutual accomplishment for Risk Associates and Contour Software (Pvt.) Ltd Pakistan. Furthermore, we wish Contour Software (Pvt.) Ltd Pakistan success in their endeavours along the path to an enhanced Information Security Management System.
