ISO 27001:2013

Decideware, the world’s leading provider of agency management solutions for major advertisers, is pleased to announce its successful achievement of the International Organization for Standardization’s respected ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System certification.

This standard formalizes the requirements of an ISMS - a systematic approach to keep sensitive information and assets secure within organisations. It includes the application of a risk management framework to people, processes and IT systems.

Additionally, and alongside ISO 27001 certification Decideware has also achieved ISO 27017:2015 Cloud Security Management System certification, a code of practice for information security controls for cloud services.

To achieve these certifications, a company must show it has a systematic and ongoing approach to managing sensitive company and customer information. As such, ISO 27001 certification is a dynamic process, requiring at least annual audits and periodic renewal of the certification.
