CANTON, Mass., February 21, 2019 - UNICOM Engineering, a leading provider of application platforms and lifecycle support services for software technology developers, OEMs, and enterprises worldwide, is pleased to announce the achievement of ISO 27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) across all campuses in Canton, Massachusetts, Plano, Texas, and Galway, Ireland. The audit and certification process was conducted by TÜV SÜD, a firm providing international comprehensive safety testing and certification services.
Heightened cyber attacks and data breaches, causing potentially devastating financial losses, are driving stricter requirements surrounding information security and privacy. As a result, companies are demanding the highest level of protection in every aspect of their business. Achievement of the rigorous ISO 27001 standard demonstrates a commitment to data protection and improvement of our business management systems.
ISO 27001 certification is a global, industry-wide specification for an ISMS, which provides a framework through which an organization identifies, analyzes, and addresses information security risks. Attaining this certification recognizes that the security policies, procedures, and methodologies have been independently verified to provide a systematic and proactive approach for effectively managing information security risks and confidential customer information.
“As UNICOM Engineering functions as an extension to our customer’s team, integrating into their business, trust and confidence are key aspects of maintaining a successful partnership,” said Rusty Cone, General Manager of UNICOM Engineering. “Adding ISO 27001 compliance to our ISO 9000, TL 9000, and ISO 14001 standards reinforces our commitment to quality manufacturing, system integration, and efficient business operations. It also aligns with the company’s long term vision for security best practices aimed at reducing our customer’s overall risk.”
