by Optimy

Optimy is now certified to the ISO27001 standard. Here what this means for you and your organization. 

Information security has always been a top priority for us. In fact, every decision we make revolves around understanding how our platform affects information privacy and security for our customers. And although Optimy already exceeds the industry standards for security and data protection, we know there’s always room for improvement. 

That’s why we’re pleased to announce that Optimy is now certified ISO 27001 security standard. 

What is ISO?

ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requires companies to have a safe information system in place when it comes to documenting sensitive information regarding data security. ISO 27001 sets up clear procedures on how a company protects personal and company data against vulnerabilities. 

  • Ensuring data processing for its intended purposes only 
  • Implementing defined disclosure procedures 
  • Providing open, transparent notice when cloud service providers falter 

What does this mean for our customers? 

We achieved ISO accreditation in April 2022. This ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information that organizations control and process. With this certification, we want to further improve how we align our security controls to match with the needs and expectations of customers. 

All of which means that you now have more control over your PII and visibility on how to use it. 

Our commitment to our customers is to maintain efficiency and security. ISO 27001 certification means that we can prove our commitment to the things that matter most to our customers. 

  • Customer data is rigorously protected
  • We assess, minimize and eliminate risks and vulnerabilities
  • Optimy is compliant with the highest standards of information security 

The Audit process

Our audit for compliance with ISO was completed by an accredited third party certification body. They provided independent validation that applicable security controls are in place and operating effectively.
