OPEX achieves ISO 27001:2005 ISMS Registered Status

by OPEX Marketing, July 16th 2010

OPEX Hosting has recently been awarded the ISO 27001:2005 ISMS (Information Security Management System) - the international standard for a company based on how it manages its information security. With best practice guidelines on addressing confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets, it forms an integral part of assuring OPEX customers of the company’s commitment to managing information securely.

Toby Sparrow, OPEX’s General Manager commented “We are delighted to have achieved this status and view it as a powerful demonstration of our promise to deliver one of the most secure hosted telephony environments in the industry. This is the culmination of a year’s work to make our hosting centre security compliant to the ISO standard, ensuring we can meet the most demanding and stringent of client requirements.”

The standard ensures that controls are in place to reduce the risk of security threats and avoids potential weaknesses in the system being exploited. A full and robust business continuity plan is in place to minimise the impact of security breaches and to ensure the protection of sensitive organisational data.

The standard effectively formalises the security processes which OPEX already had in place and has been implemented in such a way as to support continuous improvement of those processes to meet the future demands of the business and its clients.
