Thanks to the hard work of our team of experts we have been awarded the ISO 27001 – Information Security Management certificate which further outlines our commitment to security.

What is ISO 27001 certification?

 

Formally referred to as the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management standard, this framework outlines the criteria for businesses to effectively oversee information assets and data in accordance with globally acknowledged standards. It has a resilient methodology for the management of assets such as customer and employee details, intellectual property, financial information, and third-party data.

ISO 27001 mandates that organizations conduct assessments of information security risks, establish sturdy security controls and processes and integrate information security management throughout the entire organization. This standard applies to a broad spectrum of organizations involved in data collection and processing, encompassing small and medium enterprises (SMEs), corporate entities, and non-profit organizations.

 

Why did we pursue the ISO 27001 certification?

 

At base we are committed to security for both ourselves and all our customers. We are constantly striving to be at the forefront of information security and ISO 27001 compliance further demonstrates our outstanding security practices.

It further shows our commitment and shows our customers know that we are managing their data with security controls aligned with ISO27001.
