ISO 27001 is the best-known international standard for ISMS and their requirements, including best practice in data protection and cyber resilience as well as managing security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee data and information entrusted by third parties. The ISO standard provides companies with guidance for creating, executing, and continually improving an ISMS.
This certification assures customers that MERIT’s documented processes for managing company information, HR processes, and IT systems meet rigorous ISO standards. Conformity with ISO 27001 demonstrates MERIT has an ISMS in place that manages risk related to the security of data owned or handled by the company.
