Jaama gains ISO 27001 information security management certification
ISO 27001:2013 is a stringent certification for information security controls and guarantees that controls and other forms of risk treatment are in place to prevent and defend against potential information security vulnerabilities. Being awarded the certification provides reassurance to Jaama clients and prospects that its core Key2 software meets the most rigorous standard.
The certification also ensures that the information security controls continue to meet requirements on an ongoing basis around the management of data including, for example, financial information, intellectual property, employee details and information entrusted to by third parties.
Jaama’s ISO 27001:2013 certification was awarded following a comprehensive audit process carried out by the UKAS-accredited certification body Bureau Veritas.
James Thresher, Jaama’s IT director, said: “We consider the safety and security of our customers’ data to be of the upmost importance and have always taken great care ensuring our policies and processes uphold this view.
“By achieving ISO 27001:2013 certification, we can give our customers the assurance that their data is protected by an independently audited and certified best practice approach in the way we operate our business.”
Jaama managing director Martin Evans added: “The security measures that we have in place are invariably asked for in tender documents. Achieving ISO 27001:2013 gives Jaama a straightforward way for responding to questions around information governance and a competitive advantage.
“Furthermore, we anticipate that gaining ISO 27001:2013 will help protect Jaama’s reputation and demonstrates the credibility and trust that clients and prospects can have in the security of Key2.”
