San Francisco and London, May 7, 2019: Digital Shadows, the leader in Digital Risk Protection, has today announced it has been certified to the international ‘gold standard’ governing information security processes – ISO/IEC 27001:2013.

ISO 27001 is governed by the International Organization for Standardization and provides requirements for establishing and maintaining an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process. It can help any businesses in any sector to keep information assets secure.

The certification was awarded to Digital Shadows after a rigorous \audit by the BSI Group. It looked at every aspect of how Digital Shadows manages sensitive company and client information to remain secure. Its audit applied a risk management process to the company and assessed people, processes and IT systems.

Rick Holland, CISO at Digital Shadows explains: “While it is not required to achieve the certification, we wanted to demonstrate to our clients that we are meeting, and exceeding industry best practice and our internal processes are as rigorous as they can be. ISO 27001 set a very high bar for how we manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details and information trusted to us by third parties such as our clients. We recognize that ISO27001 isn’t a silver bullet against intrusions, but it will improve the resilience of Digital Shadows and our service.
