Controlar is proud to close its first Information Security Management System audit cycle (ISO 27001) with Zero Non-Conformities. The 2nd follow-up audit of the international standard for information security was held by the EIC certifying body on the 6th and 7th of December, in our headquarters in Alfena, near Porto. The main objective of this external audit was to verify strict compliance with the implemented Security Policies and Standards, thus closing a three-year audit cycle. The ISO 27001 certificate lays down the bases for the certification of Information Security Management system (ISMS), which help us to protect the three tenets of Information Security: Integrity: protection from unauthorized modifications of data, ensuring that data remains accurate Confidentiality: protection against unauthorized disclosure of information. Availability: ensuring data is fully available to be used when it is needed by its users Without the thoughtful implementation of Security Policies and Standards, we cannot guarantee interested parties that the information they share with Controlar is treated and protected according to its nature. With this certification, we ensure only defined assets have access to the company’s critical and confidential data. And each company asset has a specific role in the information security plan. One way to verify that the requirements remain implemented and are effective is through audits by the certifying bodies. After a second follow up external audit of the Information Security Management System, Controlar closes a three-year audit cycle with Zero Non-Conformities. This result is the indicator that the entire system was implemented effectively and adjusted to our needs. It is also the reflection of daily work by a committed and focused team to ensure that all controls are in operation and remain current in light of the company’s evolution and of possible attempted attacks.
