Pioneering Business Process Outsourcing organization, Invensis Technologies, has recently received ISO/IEC 27001 certification.
Invensis has always been stringent and unrelenting in ensuring the highest level of security for themselves and their clients and this certification recognizes the organization's continual commitment to these practices through the implementation of an information security management system. The ISO/IEC 27001 certifies that a company's management has an extensive security system in place to safeguard vital information. This is done through ensuring the company has an all-encompassing security system that covers IT related measures such as firewalls and anti-virus controls, and also through the company's physical security.
To attain the certificate, companies have to progress through an in-depth, three stage audit process and meet many specific requirements. The company is analyzed in regards to the security risks they face and in terms of what measures are in place to protect the company from these risks. It must be shown that there is an appropriate information security management system in place to achieve this and that the company has an ongoing plan to continue to meet the organization's information security needs, in order for the certificate to be awarded.
For companies operating within industries such as healthcare and banking, the protection of their clients' sensitive information is of paramount importance. These companies often have demanding back-office responsibilities and streamline their operations by outsourcing this work. The achievement of ISO/IEC 27001 certification is a step forward for Invensis, who are now able to provide even greater security when assisting these companies with their back-office duties. Invensis utilizes technologies such as a virtual private network (VPN), along with numerous other methods, to ensure this private information is never at risk.
