“ISO 27001 is the industry’s gold standard for information security management,” explained Tuncer Oluklu, CEO, Alex Solutions. “It provides our customers with evidence of our long-term commitment to protecting their data and a framework that will support our innovations for the future.”
To achieve certification Alex Solutions developed and implemented a rigorous security program, which included an Information Security Management System (ISMS) that defines how Alex Solutions perpetually manages security in a holistic and comprehensive manner.
“Understanding the risks that customers face when storing data in Alex was a key consideration in the development of the Alex Solutions Information Security Model,” Mr. Oluklu continued.
“The path to ISO 27k has been a very rigorous and thorough one, that many providers in our space shy away from; however this is a necessary investment in what should ultimately become the expectation across the industry,” he explained.
The Alex Solutions Information Security Model is designed primarily to protect customer metadata and user validation information from unauthorised access (confidentiality) and change (integrity), and to ensure availability, specifically within a cloud hosted environment.
ISO/IEC 27001 is the most widely adopted and accepted standard related to information security management systems. The standard specifies security management best practices and comprehensive security controls following ISO/IEC 27002 best practice guidance.
