O’Neil & Associates, Inc. (ONEIL) announced they have obtained ISO 27001 standard certification of their Information Security Management System (ISMS) supporting infrastructure and services. Most recent International Organization for Standardization (ISO) records indicate only 1,115 certifications were awarded in the United States in 2016.
A customer focus and process-driven information security effort has always been top priority for ONEIL, who first earned ISO 9001 certification in 1999. This distinguishing achievement further demonstrates their commitment to protecting internal infrastructure while providing customers with the best-in-class information security standards they have come to expect from ONEIL.
“ONEIL recognizes we must be an energetic and effective steward of our customer’s data, which is their uniquely valuable intellectual property,” said Dave Stackhouse, ONEIL Chief Information Officer. “Third-party vulnerability assessments and penetration testing confirm the ISO 27001 controls implementation is effective and ongoing. No one is absolutely immune to network compromise; however, it is incumbent upon all service providers to be a hardened target and a responsive partner regarding matters of data security with its clients. ONEIL works continuously toward those ends.”
ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard for the establishment and certification of an ISMS. The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving a documented ISMS within the context of the organization’s overall business risks. It sets forth a risk-based approach that focuses on adequate and proportionate security controls that protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties.
The certification was performed by Schellman & Company, LLC, an accredited Certification Body.
