Digicast is proud to announce that it has received ISO 27001 certification for its information security management system. This certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) confirms Digicast's compliance with this international standard for information security and ensures the sound management of customer data. We are one of the first webcasting experts in North America to obtain this certification.
The process of obtaining the certification
The process of obtaining ISO 27001 certification for Digicast was an important and rigorous step in ensuring the sound and effective management of its customers' information. Key steps in the process included
- Risk Analysis: The company had to go through a thorough information security risk analysis to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities. This step allowed Digicast to understand the risks to its customers' data and put in place the necessary security measures to protect it.
- Implementation of appropriate security measures: As a result of the risk analysis, Digicast has implemented appropriate security measures to minimize the identified risks. This includes information security policies and procedures, access controls, regular data backups, business continuity and disaster recovery plans, etc.
- Development of an Information Security Management System: Digicast has developed an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to ensure that the security measures implemented are effective and continuously monitored. The ISMS is a framework that defines policies, procedures and responsibilities for information security management.
- Certification: Finally, after passing a series of audits and verifications, Digicast has obtained ISO 27001 certification. This certification is an indicator of the company's commitment to the security of its customers' information and its ability to manage information security risks effectively.
Achieving ISO 27001 certification was a challenge for Digicast. The integration process required a lot of work for the team over 24 months. The project managers had to juggle the day-to-day operations with the integration process. They were also concerned that the implementation of an information security management system would not be well received by employees and would make the company less flexible in meeting the needs of its webcasting customers. However, as the integration progressed, the benefits of ISO 27001 certification became clear, and everyone came to see it as important.
The ISO 27001 certification, which has 114 checkpoints, is recognized all over the world and has been earned by about 40,000 companies. It is not without reason that Digicast is among the first companies in North America to achieve it. Unlike SOC 2 Type 2, ISO 27001 requires constant monitoring and is not limited to the verification of evidence provided.
