As a big data company, Be-Mobile places enormous importance on the security of its customers' and partners' data. To take this security to a new level, Be-Mobile has successfully applied the ISO 27001 standard, which is internationally recognized as a standard in the field of information security.
What is ISO?
ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization. This independent, Swiss-based organization establishes international standard norms for, among other things, quality and safety. The organization is an alliance of national standardization organizations in 163 countries. As a company you can have your processes screened by an independent certification institute.
When you meet those standards during such an audit, the ISO issues a certificate. Like now, with ISO 27001.
What does ISO 27001 entail?
ISO 27001 is one of the certificates from the ISO arsenal and a standard for information security. It proves that a company meets standards for protecting personal and/or corporate data and protecting against hacking and avoiding physical intrusions.
By obtaining the ISO 27001 certificate, Be-Mobile shows that they comply with the strict norm requirements around information security. It proves that sufficient measures are taken to meet the laws and regulations concerning information security.
What does this mean for customers and partners?
The biggest benefit lies in the relationship with customers and partners. It shows them that Be-Mobile has achieved a baseline of security and that related risks are sufficiently covered.
With the ever-increasing focus on privacy and security, this assurance is certainly welcome.
Be-Mobile is working with huge amounts of data on a daily basis. At Be-Mobile "big data" is not a buzz word but reality. It is taken very seriously that everything is done by the book. The company provides repeated training and awareness for all colleagues to handle data correctly. Annual audits of the company by an external institution will ensure that Be-Mobile continues to work in accordance with the standard.
