We feel extremely delighted and proud to announce that we are now an ISO 27001:2013 certified organization – the first in the industry to achieve the feat. This certificate reiterates our commitment towards maintaining the highest standards of information security.
In today’s digital age, information security is increasingly becoming a major concern to both individuals and organizations. Did you know 1.76 billion records got leaked in January 2019 alone? Leaving you constantly with one question – Is your Information ever really safe?
Information Security is no longer just a technology issue anymore, it is a business issue too. And in this wave of digital transformation, data and applications travel between a variety of users and devices, spanning multiple borderless networks. While this positively impacts productivity and communication, it exposes the organization to risks of valuable information being compromised or stolen, data breach or leakage through unauthorized means or malicious forces, resulting in expensive downtime, loss of business goodwill and / or legal penalties. Throwing light on the need of the hour – a seamless, impactful and effective security arsenal is essential to ensure your information is secured and contained.
Addressing these information security concerns, ISO 27001:2013 certification has proved to be the ultimate solution for organizations looking to up their information security game. It is a globally accredited standard for adopting a process-based methodology for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, maintaining, and improving the organization’s Information Security Management System (ISMS).
