Security within an organization belongs to everyone, and it requires the full effort of a team. Being audited and having conformity with the requirements for ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701 certifications was and remains to be an opportunity to reinforce our commitment to data privacy and security not only for the customers and partners we serve, but in our company-wide culture.

About UrbanLogiq

UrbanLogiq is a cloud-based software platform that integrates and visualizes data to provide fast insights for governments. We work with agencies ranging from municipalities under 100,000 in population, to regional governments, states and provinces, and many agencies in-between, enabling public officials to make faster, more affordable and accurate decisions with data.

Why did you choose to get certified against ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701?

Privacy is fundamental to what we do. UrbanLogiq sought certification against ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701 for the purpose of better serving, protecting, and demonstrating our commitment to the privacy and security of our customers and partners. As a web-based, cloud-based software platform serving the public sector, the importance of security and building robust embedded cyber-security safeguards cannot be overstated.

What are the main benefits for your company after
implementation and certification against ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701?

ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701  provide standards and requirements for security, cybersecurity, and privacy security, and lay a framework to manage privacy controls and reduce risk to the privacy rights of individuals. 

Achieving certification against them allowed UrbanLogiq to seek out and win new opportunities with clients and partners that would not have been open to us without demonstrated proof of adherence to the aforementioned.

ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701 provide international attestation and demonstrable proof of UrbanLogiq’s privacy controls which is required by many of our clients and partners.

What was your audit and certification experience with us?

Through the certification process, our MSECB representative were helpful, responsive, and professional. We appreciate their flexibility and agility with regards to our timelines, and they were able to accomplish the audit within our anticipated time frame without undue delay.

Our team highly recommends MSECB to others seeking certification and auditing services. In addition to the points above. MSECB were able and willing to accommodate our audit to a fully remote environment despite of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of postponing our audit until circumstances returned to normal, MSECB worked with us and our auditor to accomplish as much as possible amid these uncertain and fast-changing circumstances.

UrbanLogiq seeks to meet and exceed world leading standards for data privacy and security, and MSECB have been great partners to pursue these goals with. We look forward to working with MSECB in the future as we work hard to maintain these standards.
