CX Services Achieves ISO 27001 Certification
Our ISO 27001 Certification
It's taken a lot of hard work, but CX Services is delighted to announce that we have achieved the renowned ISO 27001 certification! We want to take some time to explain why that's meaningful for our partners and clients.
Today, security is an integral element of business enterprise. Safeguarding your digital resources is a vital and ever-evolving pursuit. Digital security must be a collaborative endeavour adhering to best practices and proven tenets—that's where reputable accreditations like ISO 27001 enter the picture.
ISO 27001 is a globally recognised security compliance standard designed to protect company information and assets. To obtain accreditation, you must comply with several processes, and it typically takes 6 to 12 months to get it.
We have gone through our entire company processes to make sure we look after digital information in a professional manner. We are pleased to say we've never compromised digital security, but that hasn't stopped us from taking preemptive action to ensure it never happens.
So What Is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is a certifiable standard for an information security management system (ISMS). Relevant the world over, having this certification reaps its rewards no matter where a company is based.
We can now say that at CX Services, we are internationally accredited in our commitment to data security. We have ticked all the boxes required to get a very sought-after certification. Now that we've got it, you can be assured that we have the processes and checks to ensure your data is protected and respected.
It's an auditable process, which means that representatives of ISO (International Organization for Standardisation) actually turn up at our offices and examine how we do business. Every audit reveals how you are performing against your targets. Corrective measures can then be undertaken to enhance your organisation's compliance with the security framework.
What did we actually do? We ensured that our computer systems and working methods were centred around keeping your data safe and secure.
That meant we checked that we had sufficient multi-level authentication, anti-malware software, stringent password rules, and much more. These approaches all help us safeguard against intrusion and help administer our business's information protection.
The Three Main Targets Of ISO 27001
ISO 27001 provides a governance framework that works to meet three main goals in information protection.
Availability: Only authorised individuals can view information. This demand makes certain that information is accessible to only the people that require it for their work.
Integrity: Only authorised individuals can work on/change the information, and this goal ensures that nobody misuses the information. Furthermore, authorised individuals provide accurate information since no one else can edit it.
Confidentiality: Only authorised individuals can see the information. This objective limits access to confidential information. At the same time, it decreases the chance of data leakage or data being stolen.
Three Advantages Offered By ISO 27001
ISO 27001 delivers many advantages to an organisation. Below are four such benefits:
1. Legal Adherence.
Countries all over the globe are passing legislation and directives to ensure that data is secure and safeguarded. Many governments also prescribe digital security obligations in contracts for businesses that operate in specific fields, such as healthcare and energy.
Such rules and laws can be hard to keep up with, and they may also demand many business resources, making them expensive. ISO 27001, with its integrated safety and data privacy safeguards, helps businesses stay compliant with all these requirements.
2. Pinpoint Vulnerabilities And Threats.
A systematic approach is essential to stay up to speed with cybercrime. This is not easy or cheap.
ISO 27001 accomplishes this goal. Its approach includes pinpointing risk vulnerabilities, mitigating them and putting in place controls to stop them from cropping up again. A concerted effort also helps companies fix issues before malicious parties discover and abuse them.
3. Enhance Brand Standing.
Considering today's global operations, a company must have a compliance record that meets the law. If not, the business wastes resources on regulatory and legal matters. This takes resources away from what businesses must do - focus on their core raison d'etre.
ISO 27001 provides an international benchmark so that most business associates and clients understand it. By sticking to these principles, clients will be confident in giving you their information.
It was a rigorous process, but we wanted to pursue it to make certain claims under the burden of evidence. We can now say, according to the most recognised standards organisation in the world, that we treat your digital information with the utmost respect.
We understand that when we're privy to your data that this is a privilege, and we wanted a way of demonstrating our ongoing commitment to honouring that. Now that we've achieved this valued data security certification, we won't be stopping, and we'll continue to check that data security is at the core of everything we do.
