We take data seriously. Here’s a short and sweet article about why we chose to get ISO 27001:2013 certified and what it means. If you want to know more about our company, the promise we make to our customers and their data, and the scope of our IT security policy, read on.
Why we did this
We applied to get ISO27001:2013 certified for two reasons:
LeadFamly is a company that operates within the European Union, and therefore we are GDPR (General Data Processing Regulation) compliant. Undergoing the ISO certification gave us the chance to strengthen our GDPR alignment.
As we began having discussions with enterprise clients, we saw the need for us to show that we have processes in place to handle data securely.
Our certification process
What it means for our customers
To put it succinctly, it means that the data we handle is secure. That means our customers and our customers’ customers can be sure that we know what to do in a situation in which data has been compromised.
To expand on this, it also means that all significant IT assets, i.e. systems, data, computers, communication equipment, IT sites, etc. have a security rating, are registered, and can be traced to an owner. It also means that access is given on a need-to-have basis.
