ID R&D has achieved ISO 27001 compliance! Watch this Q&A with our Chief Strategy Officer, Ilya Ozerets, and VP of Marketing, Kim Martin, to learn more about the process and what it means for our customers and partners.
ID R&D recently received the PECB Management System Certificate signifying that our organization is compliant with the ISO 27001 standard.
I’m here today with ID R&D’s Chief Strategy Officer, Ilya Ozerets, to talk a little about the process and what it means.
To start, what is ISO/IEC 27001?
Hello Kim and to begin with, I’ll cover what it is. ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an internationally recognized standard that specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system overall.
What does this certification milestone mean for ID R&D customers and partners?
Well at a high level, the certification gives customers confidence that our products and the processes we establish within the company result in the delivery of the best technology in the most secure and efficient way possible. Having this certification gives our customers, including financial institutions, and the partners that work with us peace of mind when it comes to our product development meeting the security requirements.
More specifically, there are three main benefits:
First, it demonstrates that we take the privacy and security of data seriously and that the systems and security policies we have in place incorporate best practices for managing risks.
Secondly, the framework ensures our products are built with controls in place for code quality and protection to mitigate the risks. For example, identifying vulnerabilities in the code that could lead to data leaks or malicious attacks. We also enforce these security measures as part of our continuous development and delivery processes.
And finally, as part of the assessment we looked at critical business processes for resilience in the event of major failures of information systems.
So basically, it’s about ensuring our ISMS framework follows best practices and giving our customers and partners peace of mind when working with us.
Yes definitely. Going through a third party audit and accreditation gives our clients confidence in the maturity of ID R&D’s business resilience, processes, and ability to manage sensitive information. It also makes their due diligence a little easier and faster. It’s one less thing for them to worry about!
Sounds good. Excellent Ilya, thank you so much!
Thank you Kim.
