21 Oct Wedia receives ISO 27001:2013 certification
We are happy to announce that the Information Security Management System of Wedia has been assessed and registered as conforming to the requirements of ISO 27001:2013.
Wedia is ISO 27001 certified. This certification shows Wedia’s commitment to information security standards.
What is the ISO 27001 standard?
The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) developed, in cooperation with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards which helps organizations keep various information assets secure, such as financial information, intellectual property and employee details entrusted to organizations by third parties.
ISO 27001 is the best-known standard in the family providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS), a risk management framework of policies and procedures for managing sensitive company information that an organization collects, stores, transmits or processes from customers. Companies that adopt ISO 27001:2013, the latest version of this standard, are therefore required to successfully meet a set of requirements for “establishing implementing, operating, monitoring, maintaining, and improving an ISMS.”
While this international standard is suitable to all organizations, regardless of type or size, it is not obligatory. Companies that adopt this standard, however, indicate a strong and ongoing commitment to effectively safeguard all information related to their customers.
What does this certification mean for Wedia clients?
Chief Technology Officer at Wedia, Olivier Grenet, explains the reasoning behind the company’s decision to achieve ISO 27001 certification: “For over 15 years Wedia has provided technology solutions, such as DAM, MRM etc. for companies that operate in highly regulated industries. We readily adapt to ever-changing regulatory demands, so we support their ongoing compliance with industry requirements. Since 2006, we’ve passed hundreds of demanding client-led audits, and we decided to make this official by obtaining this ISO certification.”
This certification is also a reminder to our clients that we are determined to keeping their data safe: “The highly secure ISO:27001 accreditation gives our client a full peace of mind that all their marketing assets are safe and secure because these standards ensure the best internal practices are in place to verify security, availability and privacy of their data,” adds Olivier
