Data security is more important than ever in a digital age, especially for insurers and brokers, who are closely regulated by the FCA and EU. Here’s the latest from Optalitix, who have achieved the prestigious ISO 27001 certification (ISO27001:2017).
To achieve certification, we have implemented an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to manage the people, processes, and technology to deliver software products and related services to clients worldwide. We have implemented over 100 Information Security controls which are governed by the management system. Further, we have been externally audited against these controls.
ISO 27001 is one of the world’s most prestigious security certifications. It is recognized at nation-state level and is governed by the International Standards Organisation. ISO 27001 mandates that organizations commit to continually improving their security posture. Optalitix has always been committed to protecting the data in our software products that we manage on behalf of our clients and partners. This certification demonstrates this commitment and demonstrates that our present and future clients and partners can trust us to implement solutions using our software products whilst protecting data according to best practise.
Optalitix also participates in the UK Government’s CyberEssentials program which mandates additional security controls. Optalitix is preparing to be audited against these controls in the first half of 2023.
The implementation of the ISO 27001 management system and the CyberEssentials security controls are managed and overseen by Gavin Sinai and Ari Levien who provide oversight and guidance to ensure that we continue to improve our security posture and meet the security requirements of our clients and partners.
