It has been announced that Cognidox, a leading provider of document management solutions for the high tech industry, has achieved ISO 27001 information security management certification. ISO 27001 certification is one of the most widely recognised and internationally accepted information security standards.
Attaining this standard requires companies to satisfy independent auditors that their business is systematic and rigorous in its approach to managing sensitive company and customer information. It also demonstrates that good processes are in place to help avoid mistakes that may lead to security issues.
The ISO auditor reportedly highlighted how easy it was to find all relevant documents and policies required for certification because the Cognidox Document management system (DMS) had everything available at the ‘click of a button’. This demonstrates the strength of Cognidox’s technology and approach to compliance.
This is a significant achievement for Cognidox, which was formed in the Cambridge high tech cluster, and specialises in helping its clients create and meet the quality and security controls that ultimately set them on their way to their own regulatory compliance.
Joe Byrne, CEO of Cognidox, stated: “We are trusted by our clients to store their most valuable data. In achieving the ISO 27001:2013 certification, Cognidox has shown its commitment to the highest levels of security, and demonstrated that is has all the necessary controls in place to ensure that this strict standard is met by its technology, people and processes.”
The ISO 27001:2013 standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS) within the organisation. By implementing and following the necessary steps to comply with this standard, organisations can identify, control, and eliminate security risks, ultimately certifying the security practises adopted within their organisation.
