Admincontrol is ISO 27001:2013 certified!
After two years of dedicated work, we are happy to announce the following: Admincontrol is now ISO 27001:2013 certified!
“We are very pleased to achieve ISO certification for Admincontrol, which covers our entire business process and products. This proves our commitment to providing excellent security throughout every aspect of our service,” says Ole Martin Refvik, Head of Security at Admincontrol.
He explains that the process has been a big undertaking for the whole organization.
“Two years of hard work, implementation of new policies, securing our processes and systems finally paid off. We are very happy to have reached our goal,” Refvik says.
So, what is ISO 27001:2013?
ISO 27001:2013 is the international standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (Information Security Management System).
“Achieving and maintaining this certification provides our clients with a guarantee that Admincontrol has implemented industry best-practice information security methods. There are only about 100 companies in Norway with this certification”, Refvik says.
He explains that an ISMS is an effective way of ensuring the proper management of information security and sufficient controls to reduce the risk of data breaches. It also provides a solid base for achieving compliance with the relevant data protection and privacy regulations such as the GDPR.
Why is it important for Admincontrol to be ISO 27001:2013 certified?
“Maintaining data privacy, confidentiality, availability and integrity is a top priority for Admincontrol because we are holding both sensitive and personal data for our clients. The new certification proves that Admincontrol puts security firmly on the top of the agenda. Market leading security mechanisms and trust is key for our customers, ” says Refvik.
Refvik stresses that Admincontrol’s IT & Security team is working on improving security for Admincontrol`s customers every day.
“The ISO 27001:2013 certification is a great recognition for us”, he says.
