When companies outsource, they will be required to release sensitive information about their servers and networks to the outsourcing company. It is imperative that companies thoroughly verify the way this sensitive information is handled by the outsourcing company.
On 8th May, 2008, Poornam added another feather to its cap by having its Information Systems certified with ISO 27001:2005 certification. ISO 27001:2005 is an ISO standard that certifies the security of our Information Systems to face any real or virtual threat. The compliance audit and certification was by British Standards Institution (BSI) and formally accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
With this milestone, Poornam has once again become the pioneer in adopting Internationally accepted standards like the ISMS Security Standard, to the Web Hosting Industry. It shows our commitment to our Customers’ Information and our preparations to face the ever growing threats to Information in this digitized age.
Poornam has always valued the security of our client information. By becoming the first company in the Web Hosting Industry to achieve ISO 27001:2005, we are now able to validate the security measures we had in place for our Customers’ Information. It reiterates our commitment to keep on finding ways to improve our Customer’s experience with us. Along with ISO 9001:2008, this definitely provides us with a competitive edge, because it reaffirms the trust in existing and future customers.
Restructuring our information security processes in alignment with ISO 27001:2005 has the advantage that we adopt best practices for securing information. We do it comprehensively – whether it’s network security, software security, physical security, or personnel competency in carrying out security responsibilities.
