Sample Solutions is ISO 27001 re-certified
In 2019 we got our first ISO 27001:2013 certification and ever since we are committed to providing customer excellence and continually improving our products and services.
Like most organizations in the market research industry, SSE deals with confidential customer information which is being rigorously protected. The ISO 27001 certificate demonstrates that there is a systematic approach to managing information security risks and the company complies with the information security management system – ISM.
The focus of ISO 27001 is to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information within the company. This is done by finding out what potential problems could happen to the information (i.e., risk assessment), and then defining what needs to be done to prevent such problems from happening (i.e., risk mitigation or risk treatment).
Therefore, the main philosophy of ISO 27001 is based on a process for managing risks: find out where the risks are, and then systematically treat them, through the implementation of security controls.
What brings ISO 27001?
