What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is an information security management standard. It specifies requirements for an information Security Management System (ISMS) and details how organisations should manage security risks. This means that RedMosquito have:
- Identified information security risks and systematically evaluated them taking into account the impact of threats and vulnerabilities
- Created a set of controls to mitigate these risks
- Ensured a management process reviews these risks and controls
- Committed to an ongoing program of internal audits
- Have been audited by an ISO accredited Certifying Body to test for conformity
The certification is valid for three years but does require an ongoing commitment to internal and external audits to ensure continued conformity.
