About Your Company

Alter Domus is a leading provider of integrated solutions for the alternative investment industry. Many of the world’s leading private equity houses, real estate firms and private debt managers are Alter Domus clients. They benefit from the specialized knowledge we have gained through more than 20 years of experience. Our successful track record and established network of 2,500 employees across more than 40 offices and desks work to put clients ahead of the game.

Why did you choose to get certified against ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 22301?

Alter Domus is a fast growing international company in the financial market where information security and business continuity are essential to operating in a global context, especially as the risk of cyber-attacks and business disruptions continue to grow for unprepared businesses. ISO 27001 defines information security management, which also includes business continuity management. However, ISO 27001 does not describe how business continuity management should be implemented, which is why we decided to get certified against ISO 22301 as well.

What are the main benefits of your company after implementation and certification against ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 22301?

Implementing and receiving certification for ISO 27001 and 22301 standards has certainly increased our management, people awareness, and engagement on very well structured information security and business continuity management systems across the entire organization with a strong focus on continued improvement.

ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 22301 certifications demonstrate our clear commitment to information security and business continuity management to third parties and stakeholders. They provide a framework that ensures the fulfilment of our commercial, contractual and legal responsibilities and a significant competitive advantage, especially in certain regulated sectors. These standards are invaluable for monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving our company’s information security and business continuity management systems and will unquestionably give our partners and customers greater confidence in the ways they interact with our business.

About your experience with MSECB

The MSECB auditing process and auditor were outstanding and very well organized along all our certification phases. The great experience and professionalism of the auditor at all stages of the certification process for both ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 22301 standards allowed us to challenge and improve our management systems. From our initial certification to our first surveillance audits, MSECB audits were not only conducted in order to verify our compliance with normative requirements but were also carried out in a way that makes us evolve towards higher and higher levels.
