Here at SimplyCast, we’re very excited to announce we have achieved ISO 27001:2013 certification! Attaining this certification cements SimplyCast’s dedication to information security and clients can be confident that our business operations have been thoroughly audited and proven secure by a third-party auditor to meet the ISO 27001 standard.
What is ISO 27001?
So, before going any further, what exactly is ISO 27001? ISO 27001 is an international standard that is recognized for managing risks associated with information security. This standard requires that business implement an information security management system that dictates how the business handles data and information for either internal use or clients.
SimplyCast’s information security management system (ISMS) was audited by NSF International Strategic Registrations (NSF-ISR), a certification body accredited by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB Accredited) and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).
How did SimplyCast achieve certification?
I’m glad you asked! SimplyCast spent just shy of six months developing a comprehensive and detailed information security management system. Every member of our team was involved in creating, approving, and training on policies and procedures that cover all aspects of our operations. After that, the ISMS was audited both internally by SimplyCast and externally by NSF-ISR.
ISO certification is not something simple to achieve; it takes dedication and a lot of hard work from all corners of an organization.
What does this mean for SimplyCast clients?
SimplyCast has always made the safety and security of client data first priority. The ISO 27001:2013 means that a third-party auditor has taken a detailed look at SimplyCast’s security practices and has deemed them satisfactory to meet this international security standard.
So, client data is as safe and secure as ever, but this has now been confirmed by an accredited certification body.
Now that SimplyCast has been ISO 27001:2013 certified, that’s not the end. An integral component of SimplyCast’s ISO 27001:2013 certification is a commitment to ongoing maintenance and improvement. In the background, SimplyCast will be constantly maintaining and improving its ISMS. Users and clients may not notice any change, but rest assured we’re working hard to preserve the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your data and information.
