Data security is a major concern for businesses, especially SaaS products, that outsource automation services from third-party vendors. Data stored in the cloud can be vulnerable to malware attacks and data breaches. OnBlick is now certified as an ISO 27001 compliant organization in addition to being Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II compliant.
In this blog we discuss the two certifications and why we, at OnBlick, found it necessary to have the certifications for our clients.
Published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 2013, the ISO 27001 framework is the only internationally recognized certifiable information security standard.
The practices that must be established, implemented and maintained for an Information Security Management System (ISMS) are outlined by ISO. An ISMS is a document that lists down the processes and policies needed to manage an organization’s data. It helps companies minimize risks and reduces the impact of security breaches.
The ISO 27001 certification thus enables organizations to take control of the security of financial information, intellectual property, and information of their clients.
To receive the ISO 27001 certification, an organization has to go through audits to ensure they have the right policies, procedures, and practices in place. An accredited certification body provides the certification to organizations once they assess whether the ISMS meet the required standards.
The framework acts as a proof that an organization manages information security in accordance to the international practices.
An organization aligned with the security requirements of the ISO 27001 framework can provide you some of the following benefits:
· Data protection against cyber attacks
· Reduced data security costs
· Protection against newly evolved security threats
· Awareness about data security risks
The SOC Type II framework measures the security and privacy standards of a service provider.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants(AICTE) developed a compliance framework that defines principles to be followed by service providers that use the cloud to store customer data. These principles include security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
The ISO 27001 framework has become extremely important as regulatory requirements like GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA increasingly make it necessary for organizations to protect their consumers’ data.
Compliance with the ISO 27001 certification is an assurance that our business controls and management processes are adequate enough to keep our client information safe against security threats.
We maintain strict measures to protect the interests and privacy of your organization. OnBlick continuously strives to keep up with the latest standards to ensure data security when it comes to your confidential information.
