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 for how to manage information security. With the aim of helping organizations make the information assets they hold more secure, it details requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS).

Designed to cover much more than just IT, an ISMS is intended to bring information security under management control. Without an ISMS, controls tend to be somewhat disorganized and disjointed, having been implemented often as point solutions to specific situations or simply as a matter of convention.

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

“The certified Information Security Management System is 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 distribution of responsibility are well defined and easily repeated, and, with a clear overview of the overall status in the company, there is the motivation towards 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 defend against external threats and instill ongoing confidence in our customers, partners and end users.
