You are aware of the risks caused by data breaches, and you have done your job by tightening up your security protocols. How can you be assured that your vendors and partners take data security as seriously as you do? Look behind the words.
Today, Global-Z announces that we have achieved the gold standard in privacy certifications, ISO/IEC 27001:2013. The British Standards Institute, which wrote the global draft standard, performed an in-depth assessment of our practices and verified our compliance with the standard. BSI issued the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate last week and registered it with the International Standards Organization.
With this certification, you can be confident that we have implemented best-in-class security practices and that we are doing everything we can to keep your data safe. These practices include the following:
- Implemented an information security management system for service development, operations and support.
- Put controls that in place to protect Personal Data.
- Implemented an in-depth information security risk management program.
Global-Z always had a strong culture of privacy and security over its 30-year history. But, the systems to implement it were informal and often implemented as needed. ISO/IEC 27001 provided the framework that enabled the company to make a fundamental change to a modern managed infrastructure that was implemented from the ground up. It was a quantum leap forward for the organization and will continue to evolve over time.
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification is an integral part of our ongoing commitment to implement world-class confidentiality and data security practices. In addition to certifying to the ISO/IEC standard, we are compliant with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield.
