Propylon achieved ISO/IEC 27001 certification

Propylon® Retains ISO/IEC 27001:2022 Certification

In March 2024, Propylon completed its ISO/IEC 27001:2022 re-certification. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an internationally recognized, independent organization founded in 1946 that brings together global experts to develop and publish standards. ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s best known standard for all information security management systems (ISMS). It defines the requirements that must be met by an ISMS.

Why ISO 27001:2022?

In the face of escalating cyber-crime and ever-evolving threats, the effective handling of cyber-risks can appear daunting or insurmountable. ISO/IEC 27001:2022 serves as a valuable resource for organizations aiming to cultivate a heightened awareness of risks, while pinpointing and rectifying any vulnerabilities.

Encouraging a comprehensive perspective on information security, ISO/IEC 27001:2022 assesses individuals, policies, and technology. Implementing an information security management system aligned with this standard becomes a strategic asset for managing risks, bolstering cyber-resilience, and achieving operational excellence.

Furthermore, our technology manages some of the world’s most important content, a responsibility we take very seriously. By undergoing the thorough ISO 27001:2022 accreditation process, we systematically evaluate our existing processes and actively propel ongoing enhancements in our information security practices.

What does ISO/IEC 27001:2022 mean for our future?

External ISO audits validate our meticulous documentation and implementation of processes that align with the highest standards in safeguarding both Propylon’s information assets and those of our clients. This verification ensures our commitment to security measures that protect the crucial work our clients undertake in publishing, and comprehending changes to laws and regulations.

Retaining certification is more than just a checkbox; it confirms the framework in place for continuous development is operating to a high standard. With every new team member or project initiation, robust processes are in place to effectively manage change.

Furthermore, our adherence to ISO standards guarantees our alignment with best practices. Our Information Security Management System (ISMS) group convenes monthly to examine business changes, evaluate improvements, and ensure ongoing compliance.
