IXUP achieves global ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security certification
- Validates IXUP’s information security management system
- ISO/IEC 27001 certifies risk management processes
- Highlights IXUP’s commitment to information governance and safeguarding data
Secure data collaboration company, IXUP Limited (ASX: IXU) (“IXUP” or the “Company”), today announced it has obtained ISO/IEC 27001 certification.
The internationally recognised ISO/IEC 27001 certification is a best practice framework for managing information security within an organisation and is obtained only by companies with the highest security standards. The certification process included an independent audit of IXUP by the British Standards Institution (BSI) which covered areas such as risk management procedures, threat mitigation, access control and physical security.
The internationally accepted information security standard was awarded to the Company for satisfying compliance criteria and demonstrating a systematic approach to managing sensitive information. This included ensuring IXUP has a formalised and structured business management system which can continually identify, assess and effectively treat information risks.
IXUP CEO Peter Leihn said: “By gaining ISO/IEC 27001 certification, IXUP is further proving its credentials to secure sensitive information. Data governance, risk, compliance and security are all key concerns for today’s organisations. Our ISO/IEC 27001 certification will reassure current and prospective clients that we meet strict data compliance obligations. We have always sought to ensure we meet best practice standards - our clients demand the highest level of data security. Our ISO/IEC 27001 certification acknowledges we take data security seriously.”
Chris Meehan, General Manager of Operations and Training at BSI said: “By achieving certification to ISO/IEC 27001, the world’s most widely recognised Information Security Management System standard, IXUP will be able to continually monitor and manage information security across the organisation, reassuring clients that they have implemented best practice information security methods.”
ISO/IEC 27001 also provides a framework to identify and document possible threats, along with resultant recommended information security controls and other risk treatment initiatives; with compliance regularly monitored through internal and external audits. IXUP’s certification underpins its focus on continual improvement to ensure its risk systems always meet best practice information security standards.
