Equias is very pleased to announce its ISO 27001 certificate is renewed. Last week an external ISO27001 audit organisation conducted an on-site audit and confirmed Equias is compliant.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 is a globally recognized voluntary standard in the field of information security aiming to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information within an organisation. Use of this standard helps an organisation to manage the security of information assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details and information entrusted to it by clients and other third parties. The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard recommends a systematic approach applying a risk management process to direct and control the risks associated with people, processes and IT.
