The ISO 27001 is an international norm emitted by the ISO organization and focuses on protecting customer data, identifying risks, developing and improving information security programs.
At Inflection Point we deliver software solutions to leading clients across the globe, so receiving the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification means our continuous improvement culture is at the top. The ISO 27001 certification requires the creation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) framework that helps manage and control important information within the company and by having it will help us further to improve our service offering that we have been providing for the last 16 years: core technology, digital enterprise solutions with services including software development, business analysis, QA and testing, web development, mobile apps, loT, cloud, Salesforce and security integrations.
How was the process?
At Inflection Point we focus on excellence. Our decision to look for the ISO 27001 accreditation started some years ago, when our team based in Monterrey set up for a rigorous company audit performed by a third-party organization that made sure Inflection Point met all the required security standards. It was divided into 3 parts: the documentation review (where the auditors reviewed all the documentation), the main audit (where the auditors carried out the onsite audit to check that all the activities of the company complied with the ISO norm and with the ISMS documentation), and the third step, the supervision visits (where the auditors verified yearly if the company maintains its ISMS).
"Being granted this ISO 27001 certification is a milestone for Inflection Point since we have always been committed to provide information security for our clients and team. This is an ongoing effort and we are focused on using best practices in information security management at all levels,” said Carlos Montemayor, CEO of Inflection Point.
Inflection Point follows its program of continuous improvement, where all members of our team work daily to maintain our Information security standards internally and externally together with our customers. Our next move is to maintain the ISO 27001 norm and develop new ideas and continuous improvement in information security.
We’re very proud of this achievement and this drives us to keep providing information security best practices for our clients and team. We know the future is bright for Inflection Point Systems.
