We are pleased to announce that Fixus Technologies has successfully passed the ISO certification audit for its Information Security Management System based on ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
The standard verifies that our Information Security Management System (ISMS) is officially audited, implemented according to best practices and that we have clear and defined procedures for managing security related risks.
It is awarded to businesses that can prove their systems protect customer information both internally and externally. The auditing process ensures that businesses have the capacity to mitigate risks such as data loss, theft or misuse. It provides a best practice framework that helps organisations implement, maintain and continually improve their information security systems.
What is ISO/IEC 27001:2013?
The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is a leading organisation that, alongside the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), develops international standards for the protection of data and information within business. In order to be ISO 27001 certified, an accredited body assesses the current state of business processes and policies and ensures that information security management systems are secure.
The standard covers all processes within the organisation that control the way they do business and produce and deliver their products and services. It prescribes and ensures systematic control of all an organisation’s activities that are directed towards delivery of their product or service, ensuring their customer expectations and requirements are met. Also, importantly it mandates an organisation having formal processes for continuously monitoring and improving these processes. ISO 27001 is part of the ISO 27000 series and is the auditable standard in the ISO 27000 family.
