A worldwide information security management standard jointly published by the ISO and IEC, the 27001 certification specifies a comprehensive set of best practices and controls -- including policies, procedures, and staff training -- that structure how businesses should manage risks associated with information security threats. The certification also outlines requirements for developing, operating, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS. Benefits of Keepit’s 27001 certification include:
- A systematic, verified approach to information security that results in superior customer data protection;
- Ongoing performance evaluations and internal audits that ensure Keepit continues to meet the requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001 standard;
- Continued improvement of business continuity management and disaster recovery plans;
- Risk, vulnerability, and security incident management practices that enhance overall information technology (IT) operations security;
- Compliance with current and future legal and regulatory requirements.
To attain ISO/IEC 27001 certification, Keepit engaged in a rigorous, multi-faceted audit conducted by The British Standards Institution (www.bsigroup.com). Comprising a framework that includes 150 controls, the audit evaluated Keepit’s ISMS information security, cybersecurity, and privacy protection processes, and encompassed the entire company, including services and technology, business continuity and operations, disaster recovery, and sales and legal operations.
