Announcing our ISO 27001:2013 Certification

August 14, 2021

At ParallelDots, securing our customer’s information has always been of paramount importance to us. Therefore, it is with immense pleasure that we announce that we are now ISO 2700:2013 certified.

The ISO 27001 standard is a globally recognized information security standard developed and maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO is an independent, non-governmental organization that develops “market-relevant international standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.” 

How ParallelDots achieved its ISO 27001:2013 certification?

To achieve the certification, ParallelDots’ security compliance was validated by an independent audit firm after demonstrating an ongoing and systematic approach to managing and protecting company and customer data.

To achieve this certification, we first created an ISO-compliant ISMS. We established security baselines and developed and implemented a risk management process. In addition, we provided training and awareness programs for our staff and conducted regular internal audits to measure the effectiveness of our controls. Next, our security compliance was validated by an independent audit firm and they found our controls to be in compliance with ISO 27001 standards.

What does this mean for our customers?

Our certification reflects the importance we place on protecting our clients’ data. Our customers can rest easy knowing that their information is in good hands. We hope this certification will assure them that ParallelDots will always treat their data with integrity and confidentiality.

Importantly, in addition to the security processes in place for our IT infrastructure, all staff, contractors, and intermediaries must also clear security thresholds to use our systems.  We do this to lessen the likelihood of weak spots in our system. Our customers can also be sure that they can safely access their data whenever and wherever they want to. 

We remain committed to meeting the highest security and privacy standards while serving as a trusted, secure partner for your data. We aim to create a ‘culture of security’ within the company that is reflective of the credence we give to protecting company and customer data.
