The ISO 27001 audit specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System (ISMS), while taking into account the organisation’s overall business risks. A neutral, independent agency conducted the audit and assessed the operation of the SaaS-hosted environment, as well as all available applications, IT systems, processes and services provided by the organisation’s employees and contractors.
“We are delighted to earn this certification for our SaaS customers. This new certification helps to assure Empowered’s customers that we are committed to the ongoing development and maintenance of a robust Information Security Management System that an independent, third-party auditor will regularly review and certify,” said Michael Grant, Chief Operations Officer, Empowered SMS Limited.
While most companies rely on spreadsheets to track security and compliance, Empowered’s internal teams worked together to create a Governance, Regulatory and Compliance module.
