When we first set out to build the Hopstack platform, data security was of as much importance as building the right solution set for the fulfillment market.
Hopstack has always endeavored to uphold global information security management standards and has followed the best practices in data security.
Today, we are delighted to announce that Hopstack is now ISO 27001:2013 certified. This certification validates our information security practices in the design, development, technical support, and sales and marketing of the Hopstack Digital Warehouse Operating System.
The certification is a testament to our continuous commitment to protecting our customer data and handling sensitive information in a compliant manner.
What is the ISO 27001:2013 certification?
ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally recognized and accepted information security standard that lays out the best practices for companies in managing their data. It provides guidelines on how companies of any size, industry, or geographic location, must manage information security risk while establishing an information security management system (ISMS).
Essentially, ISO 27001:2013 is about creating and maintaining an ISMS. The ISMS constitutes the various structures within an organization to protect data integrity. This involves technological structures, physical security, policies for the personnel, the role of leadership, and organization hierarchy.
The ISO 27001:2013 certification is awarded to organizations and their products when the above-mentioned structures are compliant with the guidelines set out by the standard. The certification process involves intensive documentation, risk assessment, training for employees, audits, and evaluation of relevant control systems.
The certification for ISO 27001:2013 compliance and the relevant understanding of the standards helps organizations in establishing healthy and secure data management practices as well as in being entrusted by customers, existing and potential.
