The international ISO 27001 certificate proves that Valamis’ security management system is certified according to best practices and meets the global requirements of the standard.
Joensuu, Finland, 18 December, 2019. Valamis, the global leader in digital learning technologies and workforce development, announced today that it has achieved ISO 27001 certification.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) administers standards in various fields. The ISO 27001 standard sets more than 100 requirements for a comprehensive security management system. These requirements are related to the secure management and processing of data, and measures to control and manage information security risks.
The comprehensive audit process for certification looked at the physical security of Valamis’ facilities, product safety (from product development to delivery environments and processes), financial information, intellectual properties, HR processes and personnel, and management’s commitment to security work.
“The ISO 27001 certification helps our customers, partners, and other external stakeholders to ensure that we do business in accordance with internationally defined, safe and sound practices,” says Jussi Hurskainen, CEO of Valamis.
ISO commits organizations to continually improve their security work through annual external and internal audits.
“The work doesn’t end here. We will continue to strive to further improve safety and quality by obtaining new certifications in the future,” says Kari Westerman, Valamis’ Security Specialist.
The audit process was performed by KPMG.
