ISO 27001 is the international standard developed specifically for Information Security Management Systems ("ISMS"), requiring that a company uses a systematic approach to managing sensitive information and ensuring data security. The ISO 27001 certification by TÜV Netherlands recognizes the Company's implementation of an effective information security system that complies with one of the most stringent international standards. ISO 27001 comprises 10 detailed control categories including: information security policy, security organization, asset classification controls, personnel security, physical security, communication management, access controls, system deployment, continuity planning and compliance.

The SOC 1 (Service Organization Control 1) or ISAE 3204 standard is an international recognized auditing standard issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB). A service organization’s auditor’s examination performed in accordance with ISAE No. 3402 (“ISAE 3402 Audit”) is widely accepted, because it represents an in-depth audit of a service organization’s control objectives and activities. These activities often include controls over information technology and related processes.
