Standards exist for a reason. They can be both a guide and gauge, giving us a solid foundation on which to build and assess important practices and methodologies. For example, various facilities spanning countless industries commonly adhere to standards set and enforced by the USDA and OSHA. These standards ensure that food products are safe for consumption and that workers are safe while on the job, respectively. But there are other organizations that set standards for less tangible but equally important practices such as IT security, cybersecurity, and privacy protection, all of which are major priorities for the BTECH team.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) have created the world’s leading family of standards for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) known as ISO/IEC 27001:2013, or more commonly ISO 27001:2013. To ensure the protection of your sensitive data, BTECH has recently undergone rigorous audits to obtain our ISO 27001:2013 registration from DQS Inc., the leading international benchmark for information security based on these standards.
Let’s break down why the ISO 27001:2013 registration is an important achievement and what it means for BTECH and you.
How do You Achieve ISO 27001:2013 Registration?
The ISO does not certify businesses themselves, so to become ISO 27001:2013 registered, an organization must choose an accredited ISO registrar with knowledge of their industry and businesses of their size. The registrar will then take you through a two-stage audit process where they will first assess your ISMS documentation and then how it works in action. To achieve the registration, you must show that:
- You’ve created an Information Security Management System compliant with ISO 27001:2013 standards
- Your ISMS has been certified by an accredited registration body
- You will continually maintain and improve your ISMS
The Importance of an ISO 27001:2013 Registration
The BTECH team takes all aspects of information security seriously. That includes securing our own data, but more importantly protecting our client’s information with advanced IT security, cybersecurity, and privacy protection. We’re proud to have earned our ISO 27001:2013 registration after the intense audit process by DQS Inc. discussed above not just because it’s an incredible accolade for ourselves, but because it’s an indicator that we truly do make your information security a top priority. This registration shows us that we’re making use of the latest and greatest tools and methods to protect your sensitive data and facilities when we work with you. We’ve been using the ISO 27001:2013 standards as a foundation; with this registration we’ve now been able to effectively measure the efficiency of these best practices.
As mentioned above, to earn your ISO 27001:2013 registration, you must show that you will continually maintain and improve your ISMS. So, not only does this registration show the success of our current ISMS, but it shows that we’re devoted to continue improving and maintaining it in the future. We understand that technology evolves exponentially and that our methods and tools must evolve too. As threats grow and shift, we will be ready to adapt to meet them.
