We are pleased to announce that VICTVS has been awarded ISO 27001 certification.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised information security standard and helps organisations to ensure that they manage information in a secure manner.
To gain this certification, VICTVS’s information management systems and procedures were validated through an independent, external audit. This audit required VICTVS to demonstrate our ongoing approach to protecting both company and client data, across all our systems.
As a global company working with thousands of people in more than 170 countries, VICTVS takes information security extremely seriously. Our operations and DevOps teams continually work with the aim of improving information security and protecting the people that we work with.
Incidents of data breaches by large organisations are unfortunately very common, with reputational damage and service downtime being the most obvious consequences. For individuals who are affected by these incidents, a breach of their personal data can put them at risk of phishing, malware and other hacking attacks.
Commenting on the award, our Head of DevOps, Steve Wilmers said, “ISO 27001 has provided staff with a set of policies and guidelines to refer and adhere to which prevent ambiguity in dealing with Information Security when using IT systems and handling company/client data. From a client perspective it helps instil trust by demonstrating that we are security conscious and have policies and procedures in place that address Information Security, data loss and how to respond to breaches.”
