After several years of hard work, Hyarchis received ISO 27001 certification in October 2019. Having been awarded the ISO 27001 certification means that Hyarchis now meets the most important international information security management standard. Securing this certification is a key step that confirms information security being the top priority at Hyarchis.
The ISO 27001 standard is a framework of procedures that ensures adequate management of information security risks. In concrete terms, this means that the organization documents all information security risks and minimizes risk exposure. This does not just concern compliance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); it also relates to a broad array of security issues, ranging from office access control to a detailed disaster recovery plan.
Adriaan Hoogduijn, Hyarchis’ Chief Operating Officer: “The fact that we have been awarded ISO 27001 certification sends a clear message to our customers that we have the information process under control and that all data is properly secured. We take pride in that. Our document management system is the market leader in the financial services industry and holds over 90% of all mortgage cases in the Netherlands. I would go so far as to say that our customers manage one of the most sensitive databases in the Netherlands, which is why it is so important for our customers to be able to rely on us to have our information security in order.”
The urgency behind Hyarchis landing ISO 27001 certification came mainly from the fact that more and more of our customers want their document management system hosted in a cloud environment. “Aside from a virtual cloud, we also provide this service in a what is known as a multitenancy environment, where it is extremely important that information cannot leak between accounts owned by different customers. During the certification process, this separation of environments was submitted to close scrutiny, and we came through that test with flying colors,” says A. Hoogduijn.
Obtaining ISO 27001 certification means that we can guarantee that we:
- ensure optimum protection of your customer data.
- reduce information security risks to an absolute minimum.
- prioritize information security in our document management system.
- ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
- give you the peace of mind that your data is in safe hands with us and treated with due care.
