We’re delighted to announce that Global Shares Ireland has been successful in attaining the international ISO 27001 Information Security Certification.
This gold standard credential is a milestone achievement not only for the organisation, but for our clients, both existing and prospective.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is the leading international standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It sets out the requirements for implementing a robust information security framework within an organisation and is internationally recognised as the benchmark for best practice all around the world. Having this certification demonstrates our organisation’s commitment to continual improvement, development, and protection of information, assets and sensitive data by implementing and maintaining appropriate risk assessments, policies and controls.
Why is ISO 27001 certification important?
For our clients it’s a recognised seal of approval, who get the confidence of knowing that they’re dealing with the best when it comes to due diligence.
It indicates that we are not only compliant in terms of the most thorough data protection and cyber security controls but have also demonstrated to an independent auditor that our people, processes, tools and systems all adhere to a strict recognised structure.
In short it shows that Global Shares has reached the highest international standard in information security processes and systems, and gives us the badge to prove it.
What’s next on our ISO journey?
Ongoing improvements in data privacy, integrity and security are key for all companies, no matter what industry they’re in.
Having achieved ISO 27001 Information Security Certification, Global Shares will continue working diligently to maintain consistent, higher standards through ongoing improvements and control management on our Information Security Management System (ISMS) and we will be looking to implement other standards such as the ISO 9001.
We want our clients to be confident that we’re looking after their data and that they’ve made the right choice when it comes to selecting Global Shares for the management of their equity compensation plans.
After all, employee ownership simplified, it’s what we do.
