Reduce risk, save time and money and create better outcomes by working with an ISO 27001-certified partner
Star has always been committed to keeping our client’s data and IP completely secure. Our designers and technologists use proven systems and processes to create world-class solutions, while protecting your business and your data every step of the way. As a testament to that commitment, we have obtained ISO 27001 certification.
What is ISO?
ISO 27001 is the best-known global standard for providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). It defines how an organization should manage and protect company and customer data. An independent auditor evaluates the infrastructure, office, business operations, processes, policies, engineering practices and employee qualifications, and we are proud to share that all of these met ISO standards.
Often companies wait too long to consider compliance and security. At Star, these factors are considered at every step of our process and reflected in every solution we create. ISO 27001 certification requires that our ISMS adheres to all types of compliance and regulation from GDPR to industry-specific legislation. Our certification guarantees that compliance procedures won’t delay a project. We already have the right people, processes, and systems in place.
Certification is proof we are doing everything we can to protect your assets and mitigate risk by adhering to international standards. We train all levels of our organization on data security best practices. Our team works with complicated, highly-regulated industries, that requires thoughtful engineering practices and processes. With our recent certification, you can be confident we are living up to industry standards and global best practices.
Working with an ISO-certified partner means we protect your data from potentially costly damage, losses and breaches. Losses vary across countries and industries, but according to research from IBM and the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach is $3.9 million. Since we handle all aspects of compliance and security, you won’t have to worry about paying additional vendors.
Being ISO certified also means that you adhere to business continuity best practices. So, if something should go wrong- a power outage or a natural disaster – we have procedures and infrastructure in place to recover quickly and minimize the negative impact.
Peace of mind
Certain projects require us to liaise with third-parties—specialized organizations we vet thoroughly to ensure they share our values and our commitment to quality and security. ISO 27001 certification takes this one step further by mandating our partners also live up to the highest security standards.
We invested in the ISO certification in order to innovate with confidence and deliver important benefits for our clients, and we will continuously improve our processes and approach.
