We are pleased to announce that WorkBuzz has recently achieved the ISO 27001 certification – one of the world’s most reputable certifications for information security management.
Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the ISO 27001 certification is a widely known global standard which demonstrates a company’s commitment to managing the security of assets such as financial information, employee details, and information entrusted by third parties.
The standard – which helps companies implement a robust approach to information security, keep client data secure and win and retain business – was awarded to WorkBuzz on 29th April 2021 by the British Assessment Bureau – the UK’s number one choice for ISO certification.
Of the certification, Steven Frost, WorkBuzz Founder and CEO, said:
“Keeping our client’s data secure is a top priority, so I’m delighted that we have secured the ISO 27001 certification. This builds upon the systems and measures we already have in place like Cyber Essentials and regular penetration tests.
“We know new cyber and information security risks are always emerging, so we are never complacent and always trying to stay one step ahead.”
According to the British Assessment Bureau, the benefits of an ISO 27001 certification include:
- Strengthened data security
- Continually refined processes
- Employee engagement
- More business won
- Future preparation
The WorkBuzz cloud-based platform is used by hundreds of thousands of employees around the world to provide sensitive feedback to their employers and it is therefore crucial that our clients know their data is rigorously protected.
Our clients have varying security and privacy needs – many of whom come from highly-regulated and security-sensitive industries – and therefore security is of the utmost importance to us as a business.
The ISO 27001 certification we have recently achieved renews annually through an ongoing auditing process. For more information on this subject, head to our Security page.
