D Soft obtains an ISO 27001 certificate
July 22, 2021
Why did we want to obtain this certificate?
Several of our customers already ask in the quotation process if we are ISO 27001 certified. It is taken into account in the evaluation of the quotation and thus increases our chances of winning a project. An ISO 27001 certificate also gives a certain confidence to new and existing customers. It is clear that we take all aspects of information security very seriously.
Finally, the certification process required us to examine and improve our own processes. As a result, thanks to the ISO 27001 certificate, we are able to offer an even better service to our customers.
Achieving the ISO 27001 certification is more than a one-time effort. It is an ongoing process in the organization that has a significant effect on all aspects of its operations.
What is ISO 27001?
Information security is a hot topic these days. Starting with the General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) in Europe, the rules around data protection have been tightened. More and more organizations are choosing to structure their information security based on ISO 27001. It is the most popular standard for information security worldwide.
The ISO 27001 standard describes how information can be secured by process. The standard also sets requirements for establishing, implementing, monitoring, assessing, maintaining and improving a documented Management System. In the case of this standard, that system is called ISMS (Information Security Management System). This includes the periodic performance of a risk analysis to remove risks related to information security.
In addition to information security risks and awareness, ISO 27001 also addresses, for example, reporting and handling security incidents, business continuity management and supplier performance with respect to information security.
