iso 27001 standard

In today’s ever-changing digital age, protecting sensitive information has never been more critical. From personal data to financial information and intellectual property, organizations of all sizes must take action to safeguard their sensitive data from cyber threats and other risks: this is where the ISO 27001 standard comes into play. 

One valuable tool for organizations looking to establish a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS) is the ISO 27001 standard. This globally recognized standard provides a systematic approach to managing and protecting sensitive information. ISO 27001 is part of a family of information security standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

Together, these standards provide a comprehensive framework for organizations looking to build and maintain an effective ISMS. Besides, they cover a wide range of areas related to information security, including risk assessment, security controls, incident management, and business continuity. 

ISO 27001 is the core standard in the family, providing a set of requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS. It is designed to be flexible, so organizations can tailor their implementation of the standard to their specific needs.

Although this specific standard is not mandatory, it does appear as a valuable tool for organizations seeking for demonstrating their commitment to information security best practices. By implementing the standard and undergoing a rigorous audit process, organizations can improve their overall security posture and provide assurance to customers and stakeholders that their sensitive information is being protected.

Last February 23, the Luxembourg-based Low-Code Application Platform enabling process automation in the asset management sector announced obtaining the ISO 27001-standard certification. Joining hence the other certified Big Tech companies such as Apple, Microsoft or IBM. 

Ralf Ferner, Chief Governance Officer, asserted that “this marks a major milestone in our journey, demonstrating to our current and prospective clients, partners and employees that we apply the highest standards and procedures to manage information security. As we continue to mature and help our clients to grow, the certification gives us the confidence to continue our mission to drive digital transformation in the market, knowing that all client and personal data is protected.

As the company will celebrate its 10-year anniversary next June, this new milestone is to surely assess’s expertise as well as to strengthen its  mission to drive digital transformation in the market.
