Why ISO 27001:2013 Certification for your Software Vendor should be important to you?

Software and Network Security has taken a new dimension as never before!

Software and Network Security can be a demon when not tamed, giving sleepless nights, service interruption and causing severe damage to any business. At the same time, it can be a soothing musical note when harnessed with systematic implementation of 27001:2013.

What is ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and what does it mean to you

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the International Standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (Information Security Management System). Achieving accredited certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that a company is following information security best practice, and delivers an independent, expert assessment of whether your data is adequately protected.

A typical vendor can claim that it follows the standard to give you a peace of mind but there is more to it.

A Vendor’s claim of compliance to best practice is only a small part of the story…

Almost any vendor can claim to have a sound and secure environment and I am not implying that their claims are not genuine. They may think so but their claim lacks one important component; verification. Certification to a well tried and tested standard such as ISO 27001:2013 offers assurance to our clients that our internal processes meet the rigorous levels required by the standard. The independent certification bodies have keen eyes and draw on a rich set of experience to identify anomalies and test the organisational practices within the context of modern security standards.  This was the challenge accepted by Tickit Systems. We opened up our management processes, software development methodology, deployment disciplines, backup procedures, security measures and BCP policy to objective scrutiny by undergoing the certification process.

And the good news is that Tickit Systems is now ISO 27001:2013 certified company and ever-ready to share your success story.
