Vismo, a leader in global tracking solutions, with its downloadable app for smartphones, iPhone and Android, and satellite phones, has gained ISO 27001 certification, which will help the company safeguard user data loss or compromise caused by human or technical error, physical theft, damage or cyber attack.
“ISO 27001 is the accepted global gold standard for information security management,” says Colin Dale, VP Business Development, Vismo. “Certification means we have put in place an industry best practice framework of policies and procedures which includes all physical, technical and legal controls involved in our information risk management processes.
“In practice, this means that every responsibility and business process in the company conforms to ISO 27001. Gaining the certification is one of the steps we at Vismo have taken to safeguard all data and information generated by the Vismo app and its users.
“The steps include the physical security of our offices and data facilities, including penetration testing, ensuring data security is world class.”
In addition to ISO 27001 Information Security Management certification, Vismo is ISO 9001 certified for Quality Management.
The Vismo app is used by many FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies, NGO agencies and a growing number of SMEs and organisations in the public sector, as a duty of care towards their employees.
