GlobalSign Achieves ISO27001 and ISO22301 Certifications
One of the First Certificate Authorities to retain both ISO27001 and ISO22301 certification
BOSTON, Mass., January 16, 2020 – GMO GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), a global Certificate Authority (CA) and leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the company has achieved the prestigious ISO27001 (information security management) as well as ISO22301 (business continuity management) certificates from the British Standard Institute (BSI) Group upon successful completion of a formal and extensive audit process. Not only is GlobalSign one of the only global CA’s to achieve ISO27001 certification, but it is now one of the first to complete both ISO27001 and ISO22301 certifications.
GlobalSign received the certifications upon its first ISO attempt, showcasing the completeness and rigor of its information security and business continuity program. Understanding that information must be meticulously managed, controlled, protected - and readily available given its significant impact on both end-customers and products -- GlobalSign holds a dedicated team which oversees the company’s information security and business continuity program.
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification is evidence that GlobalSign has met rigorous international standards in ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability of resources and data entrusted to GlobalSign care.
The ISO 22301:2012 certificate has been awarded in recognition of the steps GlobalSign has taken to implement processes which will provide continuity across all operations during disruptive events. This international standard is designed to keep businesses operational during the most challenging and unexpected circumstances, such as natural disasters, IT failures, supply chain disruptions, government interventions, or other threats.
“By achieving both certifications, we can provide an additional level of assurance for companies looking to work with a Certificate Authority, especially those at the enterprise level. The certifications also further validate our commitment to the protection of customer information,” said Arvid Vermote, Chief Information Security Officer, GlobalSign. “Our goal is to ensure that our systems and operations are functioning at the highest possible levels, enabling us to continuously provide an outstanding level of service to our customers.”
