GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - BEW Global, an internationally recognized leader in critical asset protection, announced today that it has achieved ISO 27001 certification after a rigorous review and audit of its information security management system (ISMS) by BSI, one of the most respected independent accredited certified bodies in the industry.
"ISO 27001 certification was an essential step to demonstrate that we are using best practices in securing our most critical assets which includes our clients' data and unique intellectual property that is key to our business," said BEW Global president and co-founder Rob Eggebrecht. "Additionally, ISO 27001 certification is a significant differentiator between BEW Global and other managed security solution providers as the ISMS demands rigorous controls with continuous measurements of ongoing improvement."
The ISO 27001 standard sets out requirements and best practices for developing, implementing, maintaining and improving ISMS programs based on an organization's business risks. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the world's leading standards development organization, made up of national standards bodies from around the world.
"ISO 27001 is a demanding standard. Certification proves there is a stringent set of processes and procedures in place and sensitive data is securely managed. I congratulate BEW Global on their achievement," stated Todd VanderVen, president of BSI Americas.
An information security management system (ISMS) is a comprehensive framework built upon the foundation of quality management principles, ultimately enabling a company to reduce risks while increasing the potential for greater operational efficiencies. A strong ISMS is able to identify an organization's security risks, design and implement a strong series of controls to address those risks, and put a strict management process in place to ensure controls continue to meet the organization's needs.
"This was a demanding process that encompassed all areas of the business and challenged our team to improve and innovate on every front," said Eggebrecht. "This certification provides our customers, investors, partners and team members a greater sense of confidence knowing the organization has met one of the highest benchmarks in the information security industry."
