As of 7th November 2022, we have been certified for ISO 27001.
This certification independently verifies that NestEgg follows information security best practices with our technology, people and processes. This is good news for your data.
ISO 27001 certification is something we have been working towards as a team for more than a year. Given the nature of our services, much of the data that passes through our systems is sensitive. As such we’ve always been attentive about protecting this data by establishing uncompromising security standards and procedures.
What is ISO 27001 certification?
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard addressing information security. ISO 27001 confirms that organisations are capable of securely handling and storing data on behalf of their customers.
At NestEgg, securing our customer’s information has always been of paramount importance to us. The certification process involved a thorough independent audit of how we establish, manage, implement, maintain security controls and protect company and customer data to meet the best practices for an information security management system (ISMS). Some areas we covered for the ISMS:
- Information asset and document access control
- Risk management
- Staff training and development
- Operations and systems security
- Business continuity
Why did we choose to complete ISO 27001 certification?
ISO 27001 certification is highly respected within the technology and software industry. It ensures that businesses are safe, secure, private and following the correct security regulations.
We wanted to make sure that our security practices were the finest in our field. We also wanted our customers to feel comfortable knowing that working with us is secure and reliable.
Working with financial services organisations within a regulated environment that involves a lot of sensitive data, it was critical for us to achieve this ISO certification which helps to ensure compliance with the information security expectations of our customers and partners.
What this means for our customers & partners
Our customers and partners can rest assured that their data is in good hands. The certification assures them that we always treat their data with integrity and confidentiality. Furthermore, any new IT infrastructures, employees, contractors etc will be evaluated thoroughly and must pass security checks to use, support and develop our systems.
Our customers will continue to receive the same level of attention, transparency, punctuality, and quality that they’ve come to expect from us at NestEgg.
What this means for NestEgg
This is a vitally important achievement for us. Our customers are the heart of our business and we believe trust is invaluable in our relationships. With all our security processes in place, it is now easier for us to be vigilant and proactive in protecting our customer’s data.
“For NestEgg, achieving ISO 27001 certification is a hugely significant milestone in our quest for continuous improvement with respect to information security. We are constantly challenging ourselves to improve our services and provide the highest security and privacy standards for our customers and partners.”
