How Cyber-Space Has Changed The Way We Export

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise: International Trade 2010UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) has nearly reached the end of its sixth Export Week. UKTI hold a series of export-focused events throughout the UK – empowering businesses to start their venture into exporting or increasing their international trade.

Harnessing the excitement surrounding this occasion – we reflect on APMG’s own success in exporting and its journey towards achieving a Queens Award for Enterprise in the International Trade Category.

Awarded to us in 2012 – the award serves as recognition of outstanding continuous performance over a period of six years. APMG proudly displays the Queen’s Award Emblem as recognition of our enduring commitment to developing leading qualifications – that challenge and reward candidates with critical knowledge and skills.

The award also recognizes the exemplary training delivered by our Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs) who operate across the globe. It’s commendable that our ATOs survive our scrupulous assessment process – so candidates can be confident that our ATOs are committed to providing world-class training.

APMG works closely with product owners such as The Cabinet Office, CESG, The Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM) Consortium and the Service Desk Institute to deliver high quality examinations and accreditation schemes that are recognized and trusted throughout the world.

Born from humble origins in 1993 – APMG has since developed to become the largest accredited personnel certification body in the world – providing accredited certification in project and service management including PRINCE2®, ASL®, BiSL® and Lean Six Sigma.

We now collaborate with over 500 ATOs across the globe to deliver more than 40 certifications. This growth has been stimulated by our passion for injecting additional value into our ATOs by expanding their product range, translating exams into a variety of languages and accessing new markets.

Since APMG was founded – there have been significant developments to the digital format -shaping the way in which services are supplied. Keen to maintain the value recognized by the Queen’s Award – we are adaptive to the needs of our customers and clients. Due to customer preference of reading eBooks and taking their exams online – we’ve allocated resources into developing our online and digital services.

Progressing forward – we’re excited to develop more innovative qualifications that are responsive to industry demands. The menacing shadow cast by the prevalent risk of cyber-crime has necessitated the need for certifications that reinforce organizations’ defenses against cyber-security attacks.

In response we’ve worked with our partners to develop certifications like COBIT®5 – that enable organizations to effectively train their staff and establish strong security infrastructures.

These certifications are early examples of APMG exploring the new markets that have emerged from the cyber-space.
