More than ever it is important to handle information securely
We are very proud to announce that we have received the full ISO27001 certification. It means that Finaps has an adequate management system in place to ensure information security for our own organization as well as for the applications we build for our clients.
We at Finaps find it very important to keep our clients’ data secure. This is one of the basic requirements of every application, though difficult to control without proper implemented policies and measures. The ISO27001 standard therefore helps us to be in control of information security risks.
This year our first certification cycle ended and therefore we were not only audited on the operations side of the management system, but the whole management system got audited on both documentation as procedural level. The audit did not reveal any shortcoming to the implemented system. We received useful recommendations which we will implement. Combined with input from internal audits we do through our organization, we keep ahead of information security developments and continuously keep improving information security of Finaps and our clients.
With the current corona-crisis more than ever it is important to handle information securely. Worldwide, people are working from home in almost every sector. This introduces information security risks that should be handled adequately. Therefore, we find it important to have internal discussions about data security and to create awareness within the Finaps organization.
We believe that every company should be ready for the new reality of working remotely, and to be able to handle both client and their own information in a secure way. We are proud to be one of the companies who are ready for this way of working. We are happy to assist and work together with companies who want to improve their knowledge and optimize their systems to become more secure.
