Víntegris renews its certification under ISO 27001, the information security standard for businesses and organizations
Víntegris has an Information Security Management System (ISMS) based on ISO 27001.
ISO 27001 enables businesses to comply with relevant law, increase customer confidence, obtain accreditation in the most straightforward way and adopt information security systems that meet international standards.
CISO at Víntegris, Victoria Hernández: “Víntegris has a structured ISMS that enables our processes to be continually updated and improved, minimising risks and giving confidence not only to Víntegris itself but also to all our customers.”
Barcelona, 02 December 2021. Víntegris, Spanish Software Developer and Trust Services Provider (TSP), has renewed its certification under ISO 27001 as required by the eIDAS Regulation. Customers are asking for certification under the standard more and more, because they want to be sure that their service provider is compliant and is familiar with the security measures required to protect confidentiality and privacy, and the chain of custody and traceability of actions. There are times when customers cannot contract with a provider who is not certified.
Víntegris was among the first ten Spanish firms to be certified under UNE: 71502, the standard that preceded ISO 27001. Since the adoption of ISO 27001, Víntegris has renewed its certification year after year. Consequently, the adoption of its Information Security Management System (ISMS) was a strategic decision and the review and updating of the ISMS is aligned with the present and future needs and goals of Víntegris, and the commitment of Víntegris to its customers.
That is what we are told by Víntegris CISO Victoria Hernández, “Our business continues to improve its security management system, which is why we renew our ISO 27001 certification every year so that our customers can have total confidence.” She also adds “This ISO standard tells us the requirements to adopt and implement continuous improvement of a security management system within the organisation.”
In that respect, Victoria Hernández notes that “We have a structured ISMS through which we maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. We work on keeping the system up to date and on the continuous improvement of our processes, minimising risks to give complete confidence not only to Víntegris itself but also to all our customers.” It enables businesses to be compliant with relevant law, increase customer confidence, obtain accreditation in the most straightforward way and adopt information security systems that meet international standards.
In terms of security, the ISMS is 100% integrated into Víntegris’ processes and its organisational structure, so that Víntegris can confirm that information security has been implemented and is taken into account in every procedure undertaken within the organisation.
Thus, notes Hernández, “We help businesses to comply with relevant law and increase confidence and security in terms of the prevention and effective management of cybersecurity threats and risks. That enables them to meet their business, legal, contractual and statutory obligations simply and to improve their corporate reputations.”
