What is ISO
That’s because it is… ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization. No, you’re not going crazy that does spell out IOS, however, that acronym in different languages would not be the same. Therefore, “ISO” is derived from the Greek word isos meaning ‘equal.’
The goal is to create equal standards worldwide to form global norms where it matters. For example, imagine if paper manufacturers simply produced paper in whichever sizes and dimensions they felt like? We would barely be able to print, photocopy or store any documents efficiently. So too, with systems which absorb, process and release sensitive information, we require a set standard which safeguards this data from cyber threats, criminals and most importantly from getting into the wrong hands.
Our ISO 27001 Certification
27001 formally refers to an Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). A system that ensures the security arrangements will be consistently tweaked to stay up to date with changes to the security threats, vulnerabilities, and business impacts. This includes a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information (in our case company and client) so that it remains secure is essential. Much like SOC 2 it involves people, processes, and IT systems by applying a risk management procedure.
We understand the value our client’s data and pride ourselves on our ability to keep it safe secure. This is why we have gone beyond the call of duty to achieve ISO-27001 Compliance. Our systems are constantly monitored and undergo daily maintenance. Our resources are concentrated on processing and protecting any data that goes through our IT infrastructure. At any given time millions of messages are being sent and received using our platform and it is, therefore, critical that we analyze and address any possible information security risk.
Business mobile messaging is no laughing matter which is why TeleMessage is Secure, Managed, Reliable and IT Ready. That said, we go beyond the typical Enterprise business and extend to Healthcare, which is why we are also ISO-27799 Compliant. Much like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), ISO 27799 covers Patient Health Information standards as well as controlling the technological information systems that are in place throughout a hospital or care center, of course, we are both HIPAA and ISO 27799 compliant. TeleMessage is not only ISO 27001, ISO 27799 Compliant but also ISO-9001 Compliant which is the industry standard for Quality Management Systems.
