What Our ISO 27001 Certification Means to Our Customers and Partners
The internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001 certification represents the gold standard in how companies manage and protect information assets. For EigenRisk stakeholders, our recently awarded ISO certification means a continued commitment to cyber risk management and the safety of your data.
Our Ongoing Commitment to Information Security
When we started EigenRisk in 2014, we understood the importance of cyber risk management. So from the very start, we put security first. And, as time went on, our data security practices have evolved.
Since then, concerns of data privacy and security have escalated with more data being moved to the cloud, the complexity of technologies, and sophistication of threats.
The regulatory environment has evolved in response. Around the world, regional, national, and even state- level regulations are being implemented to protect people and companies’ information. Additionally, the shift to working from home due to COVID-19 has increased the need for a broad approach to cybersecurity operations.
Even though ISO Certification is not typical for an early-stage company such as ours, we knew that it was the logical next step to prove our commitment to cybersecurity and to bring peace of mind to our customers and partners.
Obtaining the ISO 27001 certification is a big milestone for us. The certification:
- Levels the playing field:
For companies around the globe that require vendors to follow rigorous industry standards, the ISO 27001 Certification demonstrates that EigenRisk is a trustworthy partner to do business with. We adhere to the same information security standards as the largest companies in the world.
- Reinforces a culture of security:
ISO provides a framework, including continuous training of our people and to build information security into everything we do, no matter what the circumstances. As regulations change, work conditions change and threats emerge, this framework will help keep us operating with people, processes and technologies that exceed the cybersecurity requirements and high expectations of our clients, our partners and ourselves.
