Code analysis is essential in every organization focused on software development. However, when sensitive information is at play, organizations might want to take an extra step to ensure that those data are well protected. That’s where ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification has a significant role. More than guaranteeing that developers write better code, it’s a way to show customers that the organization takes its data security seriously.
What is ISO certification?
Maintaining consistent quality standards across different industries and nations might be challenging in today’s global marketplace. In this context, international standards help to keep a level playing field and ensure consistency.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental international organization developing and producing worldwide standards. ISO standards cover various activities, from making products and managing processes to service delivery and supplying materials.
Although ISO develops the standards themselves, a third party is responsible for annual audits and corresponding certification. These certifications — existing in many industries, from information technology to food safety — are a way for organizations to show they comply with all the standardization and quality assurance requirements.
Does your organization also have to deal with sensitive data?
One of the most prevalent ISO standards in information technology is the ISO/IEC 27001:2013. Read the full article here to find out exactly what it entails.
