Xait ISO 27001 Certified

Xait receives ISO 27001 Certification

Xait is awarded the Certificate of Conformity to the ISO 27001 standard after successfully passing an audit by PECB.

Xait demonstrates commitment to safeguarding sensitive and confidential data. Due to the expanding scope and volume of regulations, the way firms consume data and engage with their data providers is evolving, with new requirements for enhanced levels of flexibility and efficiency in their data management processes. Xait meets the highest international security standard. ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized information security management standard which ensures that a business has stringent processes in place to identify, manage and reduce risks to information security.

“Xait has adhered to the ISO 27001 standard for many years. It has helped us improve the information security for Xait and our clients in a structured way. On behalf of Xait, I am very pleased to receive a formal acknowledgement,” exclaims Mr. Hans Lie, CISO in Xait.

A quick look at the three most important areas the ISO 27001 covers:

  • An overarching process to ensure that infor­mation security controls continue to meet information security needs for both your organization and its customers on an ongoing basis.
  • It designs and implements a comprehensive set of information security controls and other risk management measures to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable.
  • It systematically examines the organization’s information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts, and has measures in place to manage or reduce them.

“Information is an extremely valuable asset that we handle with great care in Xait. When properly managed, it allows both Xait and our customers to operate with confidence. Xait’s information security management is an important part of our business model that ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our customers’ information,” says CEO Mr. Owe Lie – Bjelland.

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 ensures 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.

Marcura launches MarDocs™ with the use of XaitPorter

In line with its commitment to respond to the needs of its customers in the maritime industry, Marcura recently launched MarDocs, a collaborative cloud-based tool for charterers and brokers to manage fixtures. In order to improve the efficiency, security and control of the fixture contracts in the new system, Marcura partnered with Xait, the software development company behind XaitPorter, an Application-Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS).

MarDocs completely changes the way a broker and charterer engage in agreeing or amending fixtures, removing the need for ‘as per last’. Further, MarDocs is designed to remove time-consuming and repetitive tasks whilst delivering a solution that reduces risk and cost.

According to Adrian Challinor, the MarDocs Product Director: “With MarDocs, we have created a solution that solves the industry’s need for automating the creation of charter party documentation. We believe that by using XaitPorter as part of our solution, we have substantially sped up our time-to-market, allowing us to quickly launch a solution that the industry has needed for a long period of time.”

According to Kris Sæther, Chief Commercial Officer of Xait: “We are very pleased to work with a professional organisation such as Marcura, and that they have chosen Xait and XaitPorter. This is also an important step for Xait, as Marcura is our first client with a commercialized solution using XaitPorter as an aPaaS.”
