SureCloud Achieves ISO 27001 Accreditation
September 2017 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
SureCloud(r) has attained the ISO/IEC 27001 security certification for Information Security Management, demonstrating its commitment to observing best practices in protecting customers’ sensitive information.
This standard defines a set of best-practice information security controls, aiding businesses in developing an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This ensures businesses are implementing security in a consistent, coherent and cost-effective manner. Having ISO 27001 certified systems and processes helps customers to make informed choices about the security services and partners they choose, ensuring accountability.
Achieving the ISO 27001 certification required an initial review of SureCloud’s ISMS, and an in-depth compliance audit to test systems against the standard’s requirements. This involved a three-stage security audit: an initial review of the company’s ISMS, followed by an in-depth, formal compliance audit to test those systems against the standard’s requirements. Finally, the company must complete regular follow-up audits to confirm that it remains compliant with the standard, and has put in place a systematic approach to managing sensitive company and customer data.
The SureCloud ISMS program includes regular follow-up audits to confirm ongoing compliance, and a systematic approach to managing and securing company and customer data.
