ISO 27001:2022 Compliant/Certified

ITEX knows the importance of protecting your business reputation and securing client data. ITEX will ensure that we adopt a control regime when it comes to protecting our clients’ information.

Data is one of the most valuable assets any business has today. Our dependence on information systems and services means organisations are more vulnerable to security threats than ever before. Keeping your data secure – whether its customer, staff, or supplier data is critical, but most especially when dealing with sensitive data. ISO 27001 not only protects your business against hackers but also protects your reputation.

We have been individually assessed and certified as meeting the exacting requirements of ISO 27001 for our Information Security Management System (ISMS). The assessment is carried out by an accredited certification body who provides evidence to our customers, suppliers, employees, and partners of our 100% commitment to securing the critical information assets that we hold.

WHAT IS ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that outlines the requirements and best practices for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS) within an organisation. The primary goal of ISO 27001 is to help organisations safeguard their critical information assets by managing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive data.

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ISO 27001 sets the foundation for a comprehensive and proactive approach to information security management. The standard is applicable to organisations of all sizes, across various industries, and can be tailored to meet the unique needs of each organisation.

ISO 27001 is based on a risk management approach, which requires organisations to identify, assess, and treat information security risks specific to their business context. The standard provides a set of controls and requirements that help organizations mitigate risks and maintain a secure environment for their information assets.

Key Benefits of being ISO27001 compliant:

  • Enhanced protection of sensitive information: By adhering to the standard’s best practices, organisations can significantly reduce the likelihood of security breaches and data leaks.
