ISO Certification: Mission accomplished!
March 01, 2023
Gibtelecom is extremely pleased to announce that following our recent audit, we have achieved ISO 27001, the leading international standard for information security, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to following global best practices when it comes to securing and protecting data.
Quick reminder of what this is:
ISO 27001 is the global standard for effective information management and helps organisations avoid potentially costly security breaches.
We can now demonstrate to customers, partners, and shareholders that the necessary steps have been taken to protect their data in the unlikely event of a data security breach. Not only does this add a huge element of trust to the Gibtelecom name but it can also help minimise the potential financial and reputational damage should a breach occur. Building customer trust is crucial in any business, however it is especially important in one that is so heavily cloud-based with networks spanning across the globe.
What does this mean for Gibtelecom?
Establishing and maintaining this certification, through continuous development, demonstrates our commitment to keeping customer data safe and secure in an established framework. This is an incredible achievement for Gibtelecom, and for our customers, both local and global alike.
We view this certification as a tool that will allow us to develop new opportunities, offer a seal of approval above our competitors and garner well-deserved recognition of the steps we have taken to achieve this high level of security proficiency.
Our customers, existing and prospective, can feel confident their data is safe, secure and in trusted hands. Validation of this certification can also be made available upon request to any business or customer that requires it.
How did we do it?
Each employee played an integral role in securing this accreditation and without the involvement and effort made by all, it would not have been achievable. The rigorous certification process, which took more than a year to complete, required Gibtelecom to provide documentation and follow a comprehensive framework for information security, focusing on risk mitigation, staff training, measurement and monitoring, continuous improvement, and more.
Enormous efforts have been made by our IT, Data security, HR, and Legal teams to propel Gibtelecom forward to this point and through an intense assessment and testing process, and the result has been greatly received.
The journey for Gibtelecom is only just beginning. Having achieved this certification, we will continue to maintain and improve our high standards of Information Security. For further reassurance that best practices are, and will be, maintained, Gibtelecom will undergo annual third party assessment audits.
We want to ensure all customers are confident their data is secure and that we’re the right choice when selecting a telecommunications provider.
