Elevating Standards in Data Security
ISO 27001:2022 is a comprehensive standard that guides organisations of various sizes across industries on how to establish, implement, maintain, and enhance a systematic data security and risk management system.
Amidst the rising prevalence of cybercrime, effectively managing customer data is a daunting task. ISO 27001 guides organisations in cultivating risk awareness, preemptively addressing vulnerabilities, and implementing a comprehensive strategy that involves individuals, policies, and technology.

This is a company-wide initiative, spanning from human resources, which conducts strict background checks during the hiring process, to the tech teams. The latter implemented stringent security procedures, from end-to-end processes to vulnerability handling, and utilised robust cybersecurity technology to ensure continuous ISO compliance by monitoring elements like employee devices even at rest and AWS infrastructure. Any discrepancies will trigger swift alerts for resolution within the agreed SLA timelines.
