iLOQ awarded ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management certification

Following a comprehensive audit, iLOQ has been awarded ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management certification.

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard in information security management. In order to help organizations make the information assets they hold more secure, it outlines the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS).

Designed to cover far more than merely IT, an ISMS is intended to place information security under management control. In the absence of an ISMS, controls tend to be rather disorganized and disjointed, often having been implemented as point solutions for specific situations or simply through convention.

ISO/IEC 27001 is not mandatory. Some organizations choose to implement the standard so as to benefit from the best practices it contains. In iLOQ’s case, the company decided to become certified in order to reassure its partners and customers that the recommendations have been followed and their information assets are secure. Information assets include financial data, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.

“The certified Information Security Management System represents a common language for a global market. It will provide iLOQ with a significant competitive advantage by ensuring that best practices are in place. Processes and the division of responsibility are well defined and easily reproduced, and, with a clear overview of the overall status in the company, there is the motivation for continuous improvement,” explains iLOQ Quality Manager, Hanna Leskinen.

Ensuring information security and finding ways to protect against cyber attacks are important aspects of running a successful business. With ISO/IEC 27001 certification and a dedicated team of IT professionals, iLOQ has the necessary tools and processes in place to protect against external threats and instill ongoing confidence in its customers, partners and end users.
