Onstream Media Corporation, a leading online service provider of corporate audio and web communications, today announced that the company has received ISO 27001:2013 Certification, the most current ISO information security standard. The certification means that Onstream Media is meeting best-in-class information security standards to protect the assets of its customers who use Onstream webcasting, webinar, video publishing, audio and web conferencing services.
“With data breaches and other cybercrime on the rise, organizations are more focused than ever on data security. Private enterprises and government agencies have set high standards to make sure all their information – both internally and with vendor partners – is safe and secure,” said Randy Selman, President and CEO of Onstream Media. “ISO 27001:2013 Certification demonstrates that Onstream Media has taken extensive measures to protect both digital and non-digital information, and we employ the industry’s most stringent information security, risk management and compliance best practices to protect our customer information.”
ISO 27001:2013 certification provides the structure for implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving security on an ongoing basis. It is awarded after successful completion of a formal audit process by an independent and accredited certification body. Organizations that gain ISO 27001:2013 must be committed to continuous improvements and ongoing staff training on security procedures, implement proper access and authorization, data integrity, information availability, business continuity planning, security of physical (non-digital) information and processes for reporting incidents.
To qualify for ISO 27001:2013 certification, companies, their employees and vendors must take steps to implement procedures and processes to secure client-confidential data, person-identifiable data and information security on client sites. ISO 27001:2013 also provides rules for securing laptops and workstations, backing up data, use of portable media, securing non-electronic information and storing and disclosing personal data. To maintain its certification, Onstream Media will undergo annual audits by an independent, accredited certification body to ensure compliance and to assess initiatives for continued improvement.
