As an Authorized DocuWare Partner, we take pride in knowing that the document management products that we sell and support meet the highest standards of information security. Yesterday, DocuWare announced in a press release that their security measures meet all of the requirements defined by ISO 27001:2005. This designation provides DocuWare customers that assurance that the DocuWare product has been tested by an independent institution and certified to uphold the highest security standards.
The International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, is an independent, non-governmental international organization headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland with a membership of 163 national standards bodies. These member organizations bring together experts to share knowledge and develop international standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges. The ISO has published more than 21000 international standards, including ISO-27001:2005.
The ISO website provides an abstract of ISO/IEC 27001:2005. According to the abstract, “ISO 27001:2005 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System within the context of the organization’s overall business risks.” The standard is intended to ensure adequate security controls to protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties.
Why is ISO-27001:2005 important?
All organizations are concerned about the security of their information. There are a lot of risks out there these days, and companies are required to take measures to protect their own information as well as that of their customers.
As an ECM integrator, we want our customers to know that the products that we offer meet the highest standards to protect their information. That’s why we partner with companies like DocuWare that recognize the importance of testing and certification from international and independent companies like the ISO.
This is just one of the many reasons that companies can choose MTS Software Solutions to design and implement a document management system that not only streamlines business processes but protects your business from the risks of information security.
