Finexos achieves ISO 27001 certification

Finexos is delighted to announce our achievement of ISO 27001 accreditation, enabling demonstration of gold-standard data protection. Published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the ‘ISO/IEC 27001 – Information security, cybersecurity and privacy protection — Information security management systems — Requirements’ international standard represents the best corporate practice around information security.

About ISO 27001

ISO 27001 provides a framework and guidelines for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS), to help organisations make the information assets they hold more secure and ensure that InfoSec is deeply integrated into business practices. InfoSec focuses on the confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) of data. As part of ISO, all controls around this are linked back to risks that the organisation has identified, from business perspective, cyber threats, and applicable legislation for example.

Importance of ISO 27001

Achieving ISO 27001 certification confirms how seriously Finexos takes information security management. Compliance demonstrates that Finexos’s practices reach the highest level as we standardise, regulate, review, monitor and continuously improve our operations and practice around information security.

Passing the stringent audit process demonstrates that the company has a clearly defined internal structure and approach to handling sensitive and confidential data to deliver value to clients easily and securely, and that practices protect from internal and external threats so that clients can feel highly confident when entrusting their data to Finexos.

For companies operating in the financial services industry and routinely handling sensitive or confidential information it is particularly important to ensure that the most robust practices are in place. ISO 27001 certification validates Finexos practices, ranging from round our AI-powered credit risk engine to our email accounts. It is a business differentiator and we congratulate the team on this considerable achievement.
