Completion of multi-phased, third-party assessment reaffirms compliance with information security standards, commitment to ensuring customer and internal data security and privacy
Forbury, the leading commercial real estate (CRE) valuation software company, has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, demonstrating the company’s compliance with the internationally recognised standard for information security.
The certification confirms the company adheres to the latest Information Security Management System for the data and information systems such as software, hardware, firmware, storage, transmission media and computer networks used by Forbury and/or managed by Forbury on behalf of its customers.
“Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification reaffirms our longstanding commitment to comply with information security management protocols to ensure security and privacy across our full gamut of client and employee information – both those we utilise to run our systems internally, as well as those we provide to customers,” says Jayden Dodge, Development Manager, Forbury.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the latest in the internationally recognised ISO/IEC 27000 series of protocols that comprise information security standards published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to provide best practice recommendations on information security management, risk mitigation and improved control environments within the context of an overall Information Security Management System (ISMS).
With its ISO/IEC 27001 certification, Forbury joins a group organisations that have gone beyond the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 to also ensure its information security practices are best-of-breed. ISO/IEC 27001 expands on the ISO/IEC 27000 series of standards, providing guidelines for information management security controls applicable to and specific to managing risks to information security effectively. Following a multi-audit certification process, the British Standards Institute (BSI), an accredited certifying body of ISO/IEC 27000 standards, determined that Forbury’s ISMS conforms to the requirements for ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification.
“It’s more critical now than ever for organisations to proactively secure their internal IT environments, as well as outward, customer-facing systems, and effectively comply with regulations and standards such as ISO/IEC 27001,” says Dodge. “Keeping our clients’ confidential information safe is our number one priority. This third-party assessment and certification from BSI is a testament to the work we’ve done to make this happen and to the fact that we’ve built a secure information security environment.”
