Escalent announced today that it has received ISO/IEC 27001 information security certification from NSF-ISR, an NSF company. The ISO/IEC 27001 standard describes the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving a documented information security management system.
“Being a trusted business partner to our customers is a strategic imperative at Escalent—one that guides how we work every day,” said Melissa Sauter, CEO of Escalent. “Earning our ISO/IEC 27001 certification is another way we maintain rigorous vigilance on the ever-changing global regulatory landscape.”
Through the certification process, Escalent proved its ability to identify and treat business risks as well as systematically examine the organization’s security risks through probability and impact assessments.
“Through a comprehensive set of controls, Escalent is able to better execute their business objectives knowing they have an information security management system in place,” added Jen Morecraft, senior director of NSF-ISR. “This benefits not only their internal stakeholders and employees but also their customers as they have controls in place to better protect data.”
