DUBLIN, IRELAND, April 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SoftCo's certification guarantees effective management of customer information ensuring it is safeguarded to the highest level across SoftCo Outsource Services and SoftCo Cloud Services.
ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is the world's largest developer and publisher of international standards. ISO 27001 specifies the requirements for a business to establish, implement, review, monitor, manage and maintain an effective information security management system.
ISO 27001 was awarded to SoftCo following a rigorous auditing process conducted by Certification Europe to ensure the standard's stringent requirements are met. The certification assures customers that SoftCo is following and exceeding industry best practices as part of a corporate governance program and has implemented a robust management framework regarding information security.
"By achieving ISO 27001 certification SoftCo has taken a notable step forward and distinguished itself among its peers. The company made its information security programme open and available to be challenged by Certification Europe's independent scrutiny" commented Paul O'Donovan, Information Security Specialist and Lead Auditor at Certification Europe.
"Successful certification following the diligence of our independent, comprehensive assessment demonstrates that SoftCo is committed to continually improving their Information Security Management System. ISO 27001 gives confidence and peace of mind to SoftCo's business partners and clients that the organisation is serious about information security and that risks have been properly identified, assessed and managed."
SoftCo's Cloud solutions have been deployed by leading organisations such as Grafton Group, SouthWestern, Finning UK, Generali and Laurence Life to achieve instant ROI, gain 24/7 secure access to data and significantly reduce processing times and costs.
"The achievement of ISO27001 is a significant differentiator for SoftCo" commented Anton Scott, MD SoftCo. "We continue to deliver a unique level of service to our customers by maintaining the most stringent procedures governing security, resilience and business continuity."
