We’re pleased to announce that as of 5th July 2022 Piran Tech are officially ISO 27001 accredited!
We breakdown what ISO 27001 is, what this means for Piran Tech and our customers below…
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for information security management.
The standard is designed to ensure that adequate security controls are in place to assist in protecting information in line with regulatory requirements including the EU’s GDPR and NIS Regulations. Information security is commonly defined using the C-I-A triad:
• Confidentiality – Information is available only to authorised users
• Integrity – Information is accurate and complete
• Availability – Authorised users have access to information when they need it
C-I-A is a common model that forms the basis for the development of security systems and is used for finding vulnerabilities and methods for creating solutions.
