"Information is an asset which, like other important business assets, has value to an organisation and consequently needs to be suitably protected." – ISO/IEC 27001:2017
RefTech has been declared an ISO/IEC 27001:2017 certified company – the first in the badging and registration industry to achieve this important security status.
Our ISO certification is for the company as a whole. It's not just that we use remote servers that are certified – all our systems and all our facilities meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2017.
ISO 27001:2017 is an information security standard that was published in April 2017 by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
The certification is given to a company when it establishes, implements, maintains and continually improves its information security management system (ISMS). In this instance, 'information' includes:
Because we recognise the growing importance of data security in the events industry, we invested time and money in going through the ISO process.
Our ISMS was then independently assessed and we couldn't be prouder to say that it met the demanding standards set by the organisation.
The certification means that RefTech is actively protecting all of the registration data we have and acquire against unauthorised access, covering both physical and software security.
We plan to continue to meet the ISO standard and will be audited on a regular basis to ensure we keep our security status.
