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

ISO/IEC 27001 is a globally recognized standard that our data partners and customers value. By having this independently audited certification in place, we can provide an effective assurance of our capabilities for information and cyber security. These are both critical aspects of our operations as a data analytics SaaS business.

Benefits of obtaining certification against ISO/IEC 27001

When working with new partners and customers, we often go through an in-depth technical and due diligence process. The benefit of having ISO/IEC 27001 certification is that this process becomes a more streamlined journey. Along with the certificate itself being a valued component, the process is structured in a way that aligns with ISO/IEC 27001 framework, which allows us to respond to any question easily and straightforwardly. It has also given us an easier way to evaluate the partners we work with, which in turn builds trust between the parties and gives us more flexibility to achieve our goals.

Experience with MSECB

Our journey to ISO/IEC 27001 certification was surprisingly straightforward.  Our auditors explained the process in advance, and we were able to meet the proposed schedule, which was much appreciated. Both the auditors locally and the supervision undertaken by the MSECB staff were responsive to the queries we had and were able to explain the next steps effectively. I was anticipating this would be complicated since our teams are distributed between Europe and Australia, but in the end, it was quite painless and quick to finalize.
