“As we work with data every day, it’s important to us that we make data protection and security an integral part of our DNA."
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) November 11, 2020
ActiveNav, the data privacy and governance software provider, today announced that they have been awarded the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 certification, a widely recognized standard outlining best practices for information security management systems (ISMS).
"This certification validates our dedication and investment to the highest standards of data security. It allows us to align with our customers and meet their expectations for the highest levels of security controls and information handling," said Rich Hale, CTO, ActiveNav. “As we work with data every day, it’s important to us that we make data protection and security an integral part of our DNA.”
ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard mandating numerous controls for the establishment, maintenance, and certification of an ISMS. The ISO standard ensures that organizations have established methodologies and a framework of business and IT processes to help identify, manage, and reduce risks surrounding the security of information.
The certification, verified by an independent third party, recognizes ActiveNav’s implementation of an effective ISMS by confirming appropriate organizational awareness, support, communication, staffing, and objectives. Further, the certification also delivers a set of policies which help customers comply with relevant data privacy laws and compliance regulations.
