Independent audit verifies that Questionmark meets detailed standards for security best practices and controls
TRUMBULL, CT – 26 July, 2017 — Questionmark, an industry leader in assessment management technology, today announced it has achieved the prestigious ISO 27001 certification for Information Security Management.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an internationally recognized information security management standard which ensures organizations apply a framework to business processes to help identify, manage and reduce risks to information security. ISO 27001 ensures that process, technical and people controls are in place and audited to protect confidentiality, integrity and availability of data on an ongoing basis. The certification was achieved after in-depth assessment by a third-party accredited team of auditors at BSI (British Standards Institution).
John Kleeman, Questionmark’s Executive Director and Founder and security business lead, commented, “We work with many high-risk industries such as banks, government agencies and healthcare organizations who entrust us with their data and who need assurances on security. We’re very proud to have achieved this independent certification and joined the ranks of a select few. It is a testament to Questionmark’s dedication to implementing robust security controls, and the importance we place on the protection of our customer data.”
Carla Whyte, Senior Client Propositions Manager at BSI said: “It’s becoming increasingly vital for organizations to manage and safeguard sensitive customer data. By achieving certification to ISO 27001, Questionmark’s clients and stakeholders can have confidence that there is a robust information security management system in place.”
To ensure continued excellence with information security, Questionmark has grown the security management team dedicated to the prevention of security threats and implementation of escalation and response procedures.
Any organization that values the security of their data should carefully consider whether their chosen vendor has obtained this internationally recognized stamp of approval.
