As of October 2019, Clearvision is officially ISO 27001 certified! Find out how we achieved the certification and what it will mean for our customers.
What does the ISO 27001 certification represent?
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised framework helping organisations manage and protect their information assets so that they remain safe and secure online.
As a framework of procedures and policies, it encompasses legal, physical and technical controls involved in the information risk management process of an organisation.
ISO 27001 was formed to provide processes for:
Establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving information security management systems.
It highlights the importance of risk management with projects emerging from an information security risk assessment, providing the basis for a set of controls that help to manage information security risks — a formal, top management-driven process.
Why is the ISO 27001 certification important?
ISO 27001 is a benchmark for security best practices around the world, and businesses are only awarded if they pass a successful audit.
It’s no surprise that the certification has become one of the most desired information security standards to have in the world, with certifications growing by more than 450% over the last ten years.
It supports compliance with a host of laws — the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the NIS Regulations (Network and Information Systems Regulations).
Clearvision experts care about security
This certification aims to build trust and confidence in our users. We want our customers to know how seriously we take the protection of their information. In an ever-evolving digital age, security has never been so important. We are taking extra measures to ensure that this is understood.
Our partnership with Checkmarx is a reflection of this, as they were named by Gartner as a Leader in Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing solutions. Our partnership with them aims to support existing and new customers in the measuring and management of risks in software at the speed of DevOps.
When customers host their environments in ClearHost, we take care of the data they store within those environments, no matter the project or data they’re using.
We believe users should be in control of their own software and be able to profit from admin privileges.
ClearHost is a bespoke hosting solution in the Cloud, powered by AWS, providing personalised hosting. Our partnership with AWS ensures users get the most out of the tools they are using and the teams involved.
How Clearvision implemented ISO 27001
Confluence is the established document management and knowledge sharing tool at Clearvision.
The success of ISO 27001 implementation was achieved by utilising the individual strengths of Confluence, for instance:
- Monitoring Version Control
- Utilisation of Wiki Linking
- Encouraging Stakeholder Engagement & Collaboration
- Content Management:
- Policies & Procedures (visual process descriptions and textual procedures)
- Business Continuity
- Risk Management, etc
Confluence provided the Clearvision ISO 27001 team with the versatility required to successfully navigate the complexities of ISO 27001:
- All governing documents designated to one management system space inclusive of risk register and policies and procedures.
- Allowed relevant stakeholders to access the necessary documentation. All governing documents were given labels indicating the type of document, review dates, version control, and classifications.
This ensured that the information/documentation would always be consistent, current and coherent.
