Nowadays, companies are exposed to constant threats that aim to breach the organization’s data assets. That is especially true for businesses in the IT sector that build solutions based on the data their customers generate. That is why, at Cosmos Thrace, one of our top priorities is ensuring that our client’s data is secured and protected. Achieving ISO 27001 Certification is a milestone that tells us that our security efforts are put in the right direction.
What is ISO 27001 Certification?
ISO 27001 is an international standard that provides a framework for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) to help organizations secure their information assets. This standard is part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards. The standards have been developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
To achieve ISO 27001 certification, an organization must implement an ISMS following the standard’s requirements and undergo a formal audit by an accredited certification body. In our case, it is an ISMS applied to technology-based services in electronic data processing and information technology. The certification has worldwide recognition and maintaining it requires ongoing compliance and regular audits.
What does ISO 270001 mean for our clients?
The certification impacts you, as our customer, in the following ways:
- Enhanced Data Security: You can be assured that your sensitive data, such as customer information, business analytics, and proprietary AI models, are protected according to international standards. The certification means that we have established a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS) that covers every aspect of data handling, from its creation to its eventual disposal.
- Compliance: By adhering to ISO 27001 standards, Cosmos Thrace demonstrates compliance with global best practices in information security including GDPR, HIPAA, and more. This means that our data practices are recognized by many different regulators and comply with their legal requirements.
- Risk Management and Mitigation: ISO 27001’s attention to risk assessment and mitigation is among the most emphasized activities during the certification process. Establishing proper risk mitigation strategies reassures clients that potential security risks are proactively identified and managed.
- Regular Monitoring and Improvement: The ISO 27001 certification requires ongoing audits and improvements. This means that we will be monitoring and updating our security practices every month to be up to date with the latest best practices in data security. Moreover, we will be monitored by the International Security Organization so they will be providing an expert external opinion on how our security efforts are being developed.
In a nutshell, the ISO 27001 certification is not just a one-time achievement that makes our company look more reliable. This is a commitment to continuous enhancement in security practices that offer long-term reliability and safety to our clients. It is a dedication and investment into a data security strategy that in the next years is going to be the backbone of all our Business Intelligence and AI projects.
