Xait is pleased to inform that we successfully passed the yearly ISO/IEC 27001 Audit revision in February 2021. This adds to the list of successful audits and certifications for Xait. Not the least added value of security for our customers making sure the highest security standards are maintained.
At Xait we are committed to safeguarding sensitive and confidential data, and put a lot of care and effort into continuously improving our information security. This is where actively maintaining an Information Security Management System in compliance with international standards comes in play.
Circling back to last year we were also awarded the Certificate of Conformity to the ISO/IEC 27001 standard after successfully passing the re-certification audit by PECB. Read more about this here: Xait receives ISO/IEC 27001 re-certification
Xait’s information security management is an important part of our business model that ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our customers’ information. An important step is making sure both Xait and the data centers we use are assessed and regularly audited.
Information is an extremely valuable asset that we handle with great care. When properly managed, it allows both Xait and our customers to operate in all aspects with confidence.
“We are happy to share that the auditor announced Xait as one of the best companies he had seen with regards to Information Security. Thank you to the Xait colleagues and the team involved for their efforts!" says CEO Eirik Gudmundsen in Xait.
What is ISO/IEC 27001
ISO/IEC 27001 formally specifies an Information Security Management System (ISMS), a suite of activities concerning the management of information risks (called ‘information security risks’ in the standard). The ISMS is an overarching management framework through which the organization identifies, analyzes and addresses its information risks. The ISMS ensure that the security arrangements are fine-tuned to keep pace with changes to the security threats, vulnerabilities and business impacts – an important aspect in such a dynamic field, and a key advantage of ISO27k’s flexible risk-driven approach as compared to, say, PCI-DSS.
The standard covers all types of organizations (e.g. commercial enterprises, government agencies, non-profits), all sizes (from micro-businesses to huge multinationals), and all industries or markets (e.g. retail, banking, defense, healthcare, education and government). This is clearly a very wide brief.
Certified compliance with ISO/IEC 27001 by an accredited and respected certification body is entirely optional but is increasingly being demanded from suppliers and business partners by organizations that are concerned about the security of their information, and about information security throughout the supply chain or network.
