About the International Standards Organization (“ISO”) and the 27001:2013 Certification
The International Standards Organization® (“ISO”) / International Electrotechnical Commission (“IEC”) is a joint standardization subcommittee of the ISO who publishes the ISO/IEC 27001 information security standard, among other standards.
The ISO/IEC 27001 certification demonstrates standards for information technology, security techniques, and information security management systems. The last revision of ISO/IEC 27001 standards were in 2013; hence, the latest standard is titled “ISO/IEC 20071:2013.”
Employee Pooling Resources, EP’s processing center, has attained ISO/IEC 20071:2013 certification. The ISO itself does not certify or endorse third party companies. Audits are carried out by third party companies who are permitted to certify companies under ISO standards. The audit for Employee Pooling Resources’ current certificate was performed by KBN Certification System, Pvt. Ltd., a leading quality management company in India accredited by the Scotland Accreditation Forum for Management System Certifications. EP can proudly demonstrate its dedication to information security and privacy by providing all prospective customers a copy of its ISO/IEC 20071:2013 certificate.
