Polycom has announced it has achieved the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for its Information Security Management System (ISMS).
ISO/IEC 27001 is a widely accepted international standard for information security best practices and helps organisations implement a systematic and proactive approach to managing security risks.
After the successful completion of a formal compliance audit of Polycom’s ISMS, the ISO/IEC 27001 certification was awarded to Polycom by an independent and accredited certification body. The compliance audit included a thorough review and test of Polycom’s ISMS, which holds important employee and customer data, in adherence to the strict ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard requirements. It ensured Ploycom was effectively implementing administrative, technical and physical security controls that assist in maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability of customer information, confidential data, and intellectual property, and ensured the effectiveness of applicable controls in Polycom’s Product Development Process.
“This certification is critically important to Polycom and our customers. It will assist us in providing assurance to existing and potential clients that Polycom has established and implemented best-practice information security processes to safeguard the company’s internal/confidential data, intellectual property and customer information,” said Polycom chief information security officer Lucia Milica Turpin.
