Integrity360 today announced that it has achieved ISO 27001:2013 certification. Established by the International Organisation for Standardisation, ISO 27001 is the most widely accepted security standard in the world for information security management systems (ISMS). Companies that achieve this certification demonstrate that they have the technology, infrastructure and internal processes to comply with these strict standards of how sensitive information is protected.
Integrity360 has been certified to ISO 27001:2005 since 2010. ISO 27001:2013 is the latest update to the international best practise information security standard and this version of the standard has superseded all previous editions.
Speaking about the new standard, Ciaran Johnson, Chief Risk Officer / Senior Information Security Risk Advisor said,
“ISO 27001 is the foundation of our information security posture. It enhances the trust our customers and partners have in our ability to secure their sensitive data and information.
Our recertification highlights our ability to integrate our risk management practices with our proven security expertise across all our business. After all security is not exclusively an IT responsibility – it is everyone’s.
The support we received from within the business was a key element in our successful transition and ultimate achievement of ISO 27001:2013 certification. ISO 27001:2013 is now part of our day-to-day activities.”
