ISO 27001 certification and availability of the data
ISO 27001 certification is an international standard for Information Security that guarantees the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data handled by any organization, as well as the systems and applications that process them.
In short, Tarlogic demonstrates by achieving this recognition that it behaves in its internal operations with the same rigor and professionalism as in the companies in which it deploys its cybersecurity services.
Basically, this certification describes how an Information Security Management System is planned, implemented, verified and controlled.
Above all, it’s a global approach for the company that ensures the confidentiality of data: only authorized persons will be able to access it. Also its availability (authorized personnel will handle this information when required) based on an exhaustive risk analysis that focuses on all the professionals involved, in addition to the ICT processes and systems involved in this activity.
In this regarg, the possibility of having these certifications in the information age will be a differential element to distinguish operators within the sector.
The volume of data handled by companies has increased exponentially in recent years, and will increase even more in the next decade, so demonstrating responsible use of data will become an imperative for the cybersecurity sector.
The rise of phenomena such as teleworking will also increase the challenges faced by companies in this area.
