Elevating Standards in Data Security
ISO 27001:2022 is a comprehensive standard that guides organizations 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 organizations in cultivating risk awareness, preemptively addressing vulnerabilities and implementing a comprehensive strategy that involves individuals, policies and technology.
By attaining the ISO 27001:2022 certification, respond.io not only demonstrates its commitment to safeguarding sensitive customer information but also bolsters its defenses against cyber threats and achieves high standards of operational excellence.
This is a company-wide initiative, spanning 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 utilized 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 agreed SLA timelines.
